      Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum Half the patients were put in here because they claim to talk to God But preachers do the same thing and they re put in positions of power and praise When I saw We Are Monsters available for grabs I was super stoked I mean, a book about the apocalypse real one, not zombie version coming to an insane asylum YES PLEASE But then I read it and I was all First, I m pretty sure before it s all said and done someone out there is going to inform me how I read thi [...]

      WE ARE MONSTERS, by Brian Kirk gives us a close up look at a mental institution with two doctors who have very different approaches on how to help their patients Dr Eli Alpert prefers a compassionate, drug free approach when possible Unfortunately for the residents of this facility, Dr Alex Drexler has just formulated a new drug that he feels will cure schizophrenia.Newly arrived Crosby Nelson, known as the Apocalypse Killer seems to be the perfect candidate for Alex s cure What if, instead of h [...]

      Isn t craziness in the eye of the beholder What if those that society has labeled as sane were really the mentally ill ones Mr Kirk s debut will leave you questioning the motives of those in charge of treating the mentally ill What are their motives Are their motives for their own good or for the good of us all This book will also creep you out beyond what you ever expected, always a plus

    5. Glenn Rolfe says:

      We re sick We re all sick But we can be cured And we can be kind We don t have to let our lives be ruled by the shadows of our past We Are Monsters This is the debut novel for Brian Kirk As far as debuts go, this one is very impressive Kirk is a gifted writer and it shows in his details The characters in this book have gone through tragic beginnings that lead them in, one way or another, to Sugar Hill Mental Asylum Some come as patients, others work there in one capacity or another Dr Alex Drexl [...]

    6. Brian Keene says:

      WE ARE MONSTERS is fantastic a frightening and intense thriller and one hell of a debut novel I was blown away.

    7. A.E. says:

      Review copy received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I would give this book six stars out of five if I could It s that good The novel starts off with an engaging opening and really, who isn t afraid on some level of mental hospitals and the power that doctors have over patients Our main characters are Dr Eli Alpert, who is a very troubled man, to say the least, and then we have Angela, who is a tattooed and pierced social worker type, and of course there is Dr Alex Drexler, who i [...]

      I don t usually read other people s reviews before writing my own I m always afraid that they ll influence or somehow bias my opinion of a given work But in the case of WE ARE MONSTERS it was hard to avoid A lot of people are raving about this book, including Brian Keene and John F.D Taff, two outstanding authors that really know their business and don t generally engage in hyperbole.There was one review, however, that wasn t so positive and it s that one that I m going to address here this does [...]

      The realm of mental illness is immediately fascinating and captivating The idea the warning that your consciousness can turn on you, turn against you and warp your perception of the world around you is unsettling And I think it does, your consciousness turning on you, often than you think In little ways, easily corrected But sometimesSometimes the cliff is sharp and steep, and falling off of it can be detrimental.I think that your level of interest concerning mental health illness and the busin [...]

    10. The Grim Reader ( says:

      Psychological horror is a strand of the horror genre that does not always appeal to me I went into this novel blindfolded having known nothing about it or the author Brian Kirk First thing I liked was the cover It s eye catching, simple but engaging and makes you want to pick the book up to discover what it is that lurks between it s pages The story takes place inside Sugar Hill mental asylum the perfect place for a story such as this it seems It s a dark, often complex read, featuring some grea [...]

    11. Liz Barnsley says:

      This was a clever little novel haunting, often very disturbing with some great characters and a really intriguing premise I hesitate to put it in a box it is part thriller, part character drama, part horror leading to a very eclectic and interesting read.Very impressive for a debut in its construction and multi layered themes, a look at the treatment of the mentally ill using a deliciously dark format and idea this draws you into a strange world where not everything is as it seems.Beautifully de [...]

    12. Bean says:

      This book had a neat cover and was cheap so I snagged it during a kindle sale It ended up being a Stoker Nominee and I thought, Great I made a good purchase.No.So as far as I could tell, egomaniac with father issues invents psychotropic drug for schizophrenics that makes people s third eye open and then the apocalypse happens Maybe I don t know The writing was clunky and filled with confusing choices, was he trying to be clever, did he think he was being smart All I know is many exhausted sighs [...]

    13. Nikki says:

      If I heard correctly and this is Brian Kirk s debut, then hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen I can t wait to see what else is lurking in his mind just waiting to be released on the pages of a book I like good, old fashioned horror just as much as the next person but my favorite types of books are the ones that leave you pondering the bigger questions in life The stories that make you feel as though another piece of life s puzzle may have just been discovered and great mysteries are about [...]

    14. Angela Crawford says:

      I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this novel.We Are Monsters is the story of a haunted asylum,,, well, not exactly It s the story of the monsters and demons we carry around with us This was an odd book for me At first slow but then it grabbed me in ways that I didn t expect For the first half of it I was waiting for something to happen other than the horrible experiments that Dr Alex Drexler is performing on the patients [...]

    15. Russell Coy says:

      Sugar Hills Asylum is a renowned mental institution presided over by Eli Alpert, an aging psychiatrist who believes in treating patients with love, not pills His high level of emotional investment is spreading him thin, however, and his motives go much deeper than professional dedication Meanwhile, Alex Drexler, Eli s prot g , has created a new medicine that he hopes will cure schizophrenia What he actually hopes for is that this new treatment will make him rich and gain him the approval of his [...]

    16. Catherine Cavendish says:

      Brian Kirk scores a major debut hit with a gripping story that packs in layers than a filo pastry and is far scary.The evil that inhabits Sugar Hill mental asylum takes us deep into the psyches of the main characters and the author has really done his research here He never flinches from exploring the dark, intricate web of psychological complexities that lurk deep within the minds of his subjects.What is real What is a figment of a schizophrenic s tortured imagination As each layer of this st [...]

    17. Russell James says:

      An excellent story of a doctor who has a potential breakthrough drug to treat schizophrenia Denied legitimate testing venues, he experiments on former and current inmates at Sugar Hill asylum Things go horrifically wrong.One of the best parts of the story are the doctor s reasons for his experimentation They are all self centered, and all bad All the heroes make some seriously self destructive and completely believable decisions So damaged are the protagonists, they may qualify to become patient [...]

    18. Beau says:

      This is Brian kirk s first novel and he already writes better than some way famous authors in the genre Cough Patrick rothfuss cough.Rothfuss bashing aside, this absolutely floored me The exploration of the psyche, the philosophical notes throughout This is what made the book, but the horror itself was great too if not particularly present in my opinion 10 10 just for the story

    19. christina cooper says:

    21. Somer Canon says:

      This book is amazing and I would never in a million years guess that it is a debut novel Not a speck of this book was predictable and all of it was moving and disturbing all at once Splendidly done.

    22. Mercedes Yardley says:

      Brian Kirk s debut novel WE ARE MONSTERS is a smart, elaborate novel that weaves together the best and worst of us Complex, terrifying, and still humane, this book moved me to both horror and compassion, and that s a difficult thing indeed.

    23. Mo Shake says:

      First half of the book was good the rest was rubbish

    24. Matthew Baker says:

      When we hear the term monsters , we oftentimes think of nonhuman creatures At least I do, anyway Very rarely will I identify the word with an actual figure, like Ed Gein or Ted Bundy I suppose my love of creature features is the reason for this But author Brian Kirk is determined to change my view His recent release, WE ARE MONSTERS, shows just how monstrous humanity can be And if this book is any indication of what we can expect from him in the future, sign me up I ll be a lifelong fan.I was ve [...]

    27. March Shoggoth Madness The Haunted Reading Room says:

      REVIEW WE ARE MONSTERS by Brian KirkDon t come to this novel expecting only light hearted horror is that an oxymoron WE ARE MONSTERS will inspire you to think, ponder, consider, and wonder WE ARE MONSTERS is psychological horror, suspense, mystery, thriller Brian Kirk pulls no punches Clearly he has researched the spotty and often unpleasant, even ugly, history of mental health treatment His two opposing protagonists, Dr Eli Alpert and Dr Alex Drexler, are both highly educated, intelligent, psyc [...]

    28. Matthew Franks says:

      Brian Kirk has created both a literary and surreal horror experience with his debut novel, We Are Monsters From the very beginning the reader is thrust into the world of mental illness and the professionals that attempt to alleviate it.In this case, pharmaceuticals are front and center as Alex Drexler tests an experimental drug that he hopes will cure schizophrenia A noble pursuit but one that has mind blowing side effects.We Are Monsters is one hell of a ride but it s often the specific moments [...]

    29. Toni Boughton says:

      This is a great read Don t go into it expecting some kinda of gory horror story while there are some genuinely disturbing bits, We Are Monsters is much than that Set in a psychiatric hospital, the narrative follows several different characters the aging director, determined to treat his patients as humans the ambitious doctor, gambling everything on a medical solution to mental illness the schizophrenic patient who has earned the moniker Apocalypse.An untested treatment opens the doors of perce [...]

    30. Greg Mudd says:

      What do Kirk, King and Koontz all have in common Two things, their last names all start with the letter K and they all write great horror stories We Are Monsters is the first book from Brian Kirk and he is following in the steps of the other great authors He takes us on a behind the scenes tour through a mental institute where he questions what is reality and where is the line between sanity and insanity Great characters and a fast moving plot keep you rolling along and rooting for the Medical D [...]
