    3. Awareness of mental health is still shockingly sub par Which is why books like this should be a necessary part of everyone s literary programme, whether you can personally relate or not A broken leg is an easily visible ailment and a mental illness is not With little understanding it is hard to grasp that another s reality is now drastically different from your own This book, although only representing one small sphere of the spectrum, can provide some tolerance and empathy This poignant read is [...]

    4. Born Scared is the story of Elliott, a boy who is scared of literally everything The only thing that can regulate his ever present terror seriously, of everything are the little pills he pops every few hours On Christmas Eve, his mum goes to get his prescription refilled but she doesn t come back and Elliot realises he will have to leave the house for the first time in god knows how long and go and find her.The idea behind this book was really interesting how does someone with acute fear of abso [...]

    5. I m not ashamed to admit to feeling a little traumatised after finishing The Bunker Diary While I admired the idea, and found elements of it utterly gripping, there was a small part of me that found it all a bit macabre it made me think of Saw and other such movies books Not really my thing So it was not without some caution that I started this Brooks has a habit of taking seemingly ordinary characters and finding the downright odd to focus on In this case, it works brilliantly.Elliot is scared [...]

    6. OMFG THIS BOOK IS AWESOME Kevin Brooks is a brutally brutal writer When I was reading this book, I felt everything the main protagonist was feeling Best book of this year

    7. Zitate Die drei unbekannten Dinge an jenem Tag waren meine Mum, ihre ltere Schwester Shirley und Dr Gibson Und das Komische das Eigenartige daran war, dass sie die ersten Menschen, die mich zu Tode erschreckten seitdem zu den einzigen dreien geworden sind, die mich nicht zu Tode erschrecken Seite 11 Das Zimmer ist meine Zuflucht, der einzige Ort, wo ich mich sicher f hle, der einzige Ort, wo ich sein will.Mein Zimmer.Mein Alles.Meine Welt Seite 49 Das Monster l chelt in sich hinein Es ist gl ckl [...]

    8. Ik ben blij dat ik dit boek gekozen heb om te lezen, het is een zeer sterk verhaal dat op sommige momenten heftig wordt Het is een origineel boek en het is mooi geschreven, Elliot blijft doorzetten doorheen het verhaal desondanks het zeer moeilijk is voor hem omdat hij een angststoornis heeft die hem al vanaf zijn geboorte achtervolgd, hij probeert zijn moeder en zijn zus te vinden omdat zij de pillen hebben die hij nodig heeft om zijn angst in bedwang te houden Hij heeft zijn angst verschillend [...]

    9. De hoofdpersoon in dit boek is erg speciaal Elliot heeft een angsstoornis waardoor bijna alles wat hij tegenkomt hem extreme angst aanjaagt De meeste hoofdstukken in dit boek zijn geschreven vanuit het perspectief van Elliot Ik vind dat Kevin Brooks de manier waarop Elliot zijn angst ervaart en de redenaties die ontstaan onder invloed van de angst erg mooi heeft omschreven De schrijver neemt geen blad voor de mond en geeft alle gedachten en gevoelens zonder filter weer Dit komt soms hard over, m [...]

    10. Same asor different Having just read Goldfish Boy, the two books sit side by side but I feel that Goldfish Boy is the better of the two They are so similar in theme and execution the difference will only be apparent in the fact that Born Scared is a tense and gripping on the edge of your seat telling of a boy forced to face the outside world to save his Mum and aunt I had to keep reading although I had to get up early the next day Having settled it in my mind overnight i can day it is well worth [...]

    12. Da ich schon einige B cher von dem Autor Kevin Brooks gelesen und diese ganz unterschiedlich bewertet habe, war ich neugierig, wie mich sein neuestes Werk, Born Scared , berzeugen kann Aus dem Klappentext konnte ich lediglich herauslesen, dass es um einen Jungen handelt, der mit einer Krankheit zu k mpfen hat, die ihn st ndig an unglaublichen Angstgef hlen leiden l sst Diese Grundidee hat mich angesprochen, weswegen ich erwartungsvoll an den Roman herangegangen bin Ob diese Erwartungshaltung ger [...]

    13. Fazit Ein unglaublich kurzer und packender Roman, der viel mit Angst zu tun hat Diese muss Elliot in einer Notsituation berwinden, was er eher selten schafft, denn seine Angst ist immer allgegenw rtig Sie ist keine normale Angst, sondern eine BestieBewertung Elliot hat Angst und nimmt dagegen Tabletten, als diese eines Morgens alle sind, berschlagen sich die Ereignisse und Elliot muss sich seine bernat rlichen ngsten stellen, was gar nicht so einfach ist.Die Zeiten springen sehr in der Geschicht [...]

    14. WOW What a pacey thriller with a totally original story line.We follow Elliot who suffers with an ACUTE anxiety syndrome as he is forced to do the most terrifying thing, go outside His mum had gone to collect his anxiety medication, in a snowstorm, the day before Christmas, after the pharmacy gave them the wrong medication He s already anxious as they got it wrong and he only has a few tablets left to stave off the monster but when his mum fails to phone him for the 5 min check ups they d agreed [...]

    15. Opnieuw een roman over een overleden zusje, verdwenen vader en een angst dwangstoornis Vergeleken met Bang geboren vond ik onder meer Turtles all the way down en Optimisme is dodelijk veel interessanter en spannender En dat terwijl Kevin Brooks zijn verhaal toch echt op z n thrillers overbrengt inclusief het op ingenieuze wijze samenkomen van de drie aparte verhaallijnen in een louterende climax.Na de aangrijpende oorzaak van Elliott s allesoverheersende angst het veel te vroeg ter wereld komen [...]

    16. Tijdens het verhaal voel je constant een soort dreiging je bent je bewust van de angsten waar Elliot mee te maken heeft Deze zijn angstaanjagend duidelijk beschreven door de auteur Wanneer Elliot gedwongen wordt naar buiten te gaan gebeurt er een heleboel en verandert het boek in een spannend avonturenverhaal met heel veel brutale acties Deze acties hadden voor mij iets minder heftig mogen zijn als je kijkt naar de leeftijdsgroep waarvoor het boek geschikt is.De gebeurtenissen worden beschreven [...]

    17. Starts off great but the ending is stupid That said I still liked it, and love Kevin brooks as an author.

    18. Kevin Brooks, winnaar van diverse literaire prijzen, en schrijver van het verfilmde iBoy Wanneer hij een nieuw boek uit heeft, dan wil je daar al eens wat extra aandacht aan schenken Bang geboren is zijn laatste nieuwe YA thriller , want zo kunnen we het genre toch wel noemen Een extra reden om wat meer aandacht aan dit boek te schenken, is het feit dat Brooks boeken schrijft die ook heel veel jongens aanspreken Geen verliefde meisjes die zich ontpoppen als heldinnen Nee, hier spelen jongens de [...]

    19. Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a copy for review, however I was disappointed to find that this book just didn t work for me.The opening of the novel was gripping It set out the premise well, detailing Elliot s condition and raising the tension His mother has left, Elliot is certain something bad has happened to her, his medication is running out, and he s trying to build up the courage to look for her Added to this are some vague supernatural elements which could easily be part of [...]

    20. Original review posted here I have been given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I read a couple of Kevin Brooks books when I was a teen and really enjoyed them they re on my reread pile for sure so I was really excited when this one popped up on NetGalley.I really really wanted to like it, but unfortunately this book just didn t do a lot for me It wasn t bad and I didn t hate it but I just wasn t that into it either.As the blurb says, Elliot is scared of everything And I mean [...]

    21. I can t help being a little disappointed by this new book by Kevin Brooks After being blown away by The Bunker Diary mixed feelings about Martyn Pig and knowing this was focusing on Anxiety I had some quite high expectations for what Brooks could do For me this one firmly fell in the it s alright category It was alright it s fine Elliot is afraid of everything and he always had been since he was a newborn He lives with his Mum and rarely leaves his room, never mind his house He relies on mediati [...]

    22. I am a massive fan of Kevin Brooks After discovering one of his books lying on a coffee table after my housemate had been to the library, I have devoured every title I can get hold of Born Scared is a very typical Brooks book Aimed at the younger market but perfectly acceptable for older people to read I m in my thirties but not fantasy, his books appeal to a much larger audience, and are great for reluctant readers I love the realism mixed with weird in all of his books, and in true Brooks styl [...]

    23. One for reluctant readers a gripping short story with tension, excitement, criminals and an unusual protagonist.Elliott is scared of almost everything He can t leave the house, he can t function as a normal child would, and only his pills keep him feeling halfway in control.So when he finds himself on a snowy Christmas Eve down to the last few, and his mum runs out to replenish the supply, he has to hold himself together until she returns but she doesn t What should he do What CAN he do In just [...]

    24. Elliot has run out of pills He needs them to keep the beast of unbridled fear away Ever since he was born, Elliot has been terrified by almost everything This means people other than his mum , dark, dogs, cars, the sea, baths, and even colours His mum has tried to get help for him but he s so terrified of the outside world, it never happens So Elliot spends his days and nights in his bedroom He has everything he needs but it s very close to Christmas and he s run out of pills to keep his irratio [...]

    25. The fear of fear itself is what plagues Elliot He has always been riddled and overcome with anxiety and fear He can t remember when he wasn t, and believe you me he has vivid memories from his very beginning Or perhaps he just imagines it to be so in an attempt to understand his fear.I think it is worth debating whether fear can actually be nature as opposed to nurture.The temperament of a child is already defined in the womb and by the first weeks after it has been born The disposition can be a [...]

    26. Elliot is afraid Of everything He barely goes out and lives with his Mum who looks after him protectively Elliot hears his dead Sister Ellamay in his head who prompts him to make decisions and seems to be the small courageous side of himself as the words he hears always push him to be brave One Christmas Eve Elliot realizes that he is running out out his medication pills and the panic at having to do without them overwhelms him so his Mum tells him she will go and get his prescription for him Sh [...]

    27. Thank you to Netgalley for providing me a copy of this Born Scared exchange of a honest review.I ve read a lot of Kevin Brooks books in the past when I was a few years younger and most of them have left me awestruck and traumatised As should books so Kidding.The synopsis sounded very intriguing however for me it wasn t original the difference to this book and others I have read in the past is that the main character is a boy The tension is very apparent in the book, Elliot is crippled with anxie [...]
