    I believe the greatest horror comes from real life To put it another way if something can really happen to you it's terrifying than say a werewolf or aliens This is the premise of a cracking little short from Matt Shaw who is fast becoming one of my favourite independent authors Shaw also includes two of the scariest elements of horrorchildren andno spoilers it ruins the endingFirst of all I've read the reviews so let's get that part out of the way There are errors in the book I noticed a couple of typos and changes of tense in certain sentences However this doesn't ruin the flow of the story If anything it adds to the chaos and confusion that inhabits our protagonist a teenager called Alex who loses his little brother in a shopping mall As I mentioned a real situation twisted with the menace of horroralways effective The errors probably weren't intentional by the author but unlike some books they don't ruin the experience The reason Smile is so effective is simple Fear Parents brothers sisters babysitters; everyone knows the fear of losing a little one especially somewhere as chaotic and unforgiving as a shopping mall It paralyses you and there's always the nagging doubt that searching for someone in a place so vast is taking you further away from them This is nestled beautifully in the book itself the tension is ever present as Alex goes from selfish kid to nervous irresponsible brother By the time he gets the useless security guards involved the book is fraught with tension I couldn't stop reading finishing it in one sitting4 Smile is a little gem of a book It's short tense plotted between past and present tense using flashbacks to trace the events of the book and very spooky As mentioned I won't ruin the ending for you but Smile will have you trembling a little It would have been 5 but I think it was a little too short There were certain other things that seemed a little unexplained the security camera bit for example but sometimes in horror this also adds to the terror as the unknown is always petrifying One thing is certainyou'll never look at your kids in the same way again

    First off Smile prays on one of the many nightmares every parent dreads losing your child while out shopping it nearly happened to me once and the panic is indescribable In this day and age you’ve got to have eyes in the back of your headSmile is told in first person from the viewpoint of Alex who takes his 8 year old brother shopping to get school shoes the bribe is a trip to the toy store Shoes bought Alex’s next stop is trainers for himself but no arguments ensue and Lewis throws a tantrum of epic proportions storms off and amazingly stops outside the shop Alex has eyes on him turns round turns back and he’s goneThe story follows two timelines not to far apart the present search for Lewis and the events leading up to the separationTurns out Lewis is not the only missing person in the shopping centre and while viewing CCTV footage the only unusual thing seen is the presence of a clownNow I’ve got to say the whole clown thing has never really done it for me in a scary context I guess it’s from watching a few low budget horror films as a kid Smile has changed my opinion somewhat amidst a short story that builds the tension nicely

    Do you hate Clowns? Well I can guarantee you after you read this you’ll hate them a little Alex loses his little ADHD brother in the mall after being asked to take him to get shoes so his worn out mother can have a little peace and uite for awhile He panics as anyone who loses a child would but when they find out two children have gone missing this become dire The only thing the children have in common after viewing the monitors is they all had an encounter with a strange clown—one who was not supposed to be there What happens next will chill you to the bone and pray you never see another clown as long as you liveHoly Hell I could not put this book down I read it from cover to cover in an hour's time Matt Shaw’s writing is exceptional and the story itself sent cold eerie chills down my spin Smile is a suspenseful horror story you don’t want to miss I'd give it six stars if I could loved this story

    A typical teen Alex has been asked to take his younger brother Lewis who has ADHD to the mall to give his mother a break Alex's reward for doing so is the pair of shoes he has been wanting all he has to do is take Lewis to the toy store he wants to visit So far so good except for the creepy mall clown that is trying unsuccessfully to make Lewis laughFirst on Alex's agenda is to take care of what he wants to do promising little Lewis his time will come they will go to the store he wants to see As Alex gets wrapped up in his own shopping Lewis disappears and cannot be found Security cameras show him there one minute and gone the nextWhat happens next only adds to the terror of losing his brother For a short read I have to say this is detailed tense realistic and horrific It is every parent's nightmare times ten Some people love clowns some think they are creepy I'd love to know how you feel about clowns after reading this

    This free short novella from Kindle was my first read by this author and to be honest it will probably be my lastFirstly there were many grammatical errors making it hard to read the author switched from present to past tense in the same sentence and often repeated whole paragraphs verbatim which jarred with meThe story line began really well though with a teenage boy looking after his younger adhd affected brother in a busy shopping centre when the younger lad goes missing It built tension and made you feel you were this teenage lad panicking about what to do trying to find his kid brother and was showing all the signs of a really good psychological thrillerThen it suddenly took a bizarre and unbelieveable turn and the supposedly horrific ending was ridiculous Unexpected but just didn't really go with the rest of the story and all the horror was in the last page or two

    4 StarsSmile is a fun novella that is worth a uick summer read Matt Shaw does a great job at cranking up the tension and the angst and shows how scary losing a small child can be The story uickly unfolds and it is clear that it will not be a fun trip to the mall for our young cast For a novella enough is said and enough takes place to make this story workCheck it outI hate clowns I think that I hate the smiling ones worse There's something really sinister about them Stephen fucking king I'm never gonna read one of his books again I swear
