    One thought on “A Head Full Of Knives”

    1. Review: A HEAD FULL OF KNIVES by Luke SmitherdThis was my first title from Luke Smitherd, but definitely not my last. A HEAD FULL OF KNIVES is a literate, engrossing, metaphysical novel, with a totally creative view of the afterlife--definitely not any of the traditional afterlife expectations or expressions. For the animal lover, there are 2 dogs, a cat, birds, and foxes. For those of a metaphysical or philosophical turn, there are the various (both pleasant and unwieldy) afterlife levels. Auth [...]

    2. I am so glad that I stumbled upon this author!This book was a bit like falling down the stairs if that can ever be done in a good way. The fall The opening chapter. Alright, I'm hooked what do we have here? And then trip crash bang a heap at the bottom. What the hell just happened??? That was AWESOME!

    3. 3.5 stars, good idea and overall good execution. But I'd say unnecessarily complicated with some 'fluff' that made me aware this was self-published, probably would benefit from a professional editor. I did enjoy it though and I like his unique ideas.

    4. I'm okay reading about time travel or aliens, or frankly a long list of unbelievable ideas which Luke has written about in his other books, and i'm cool with all that, but the afterlife? i just don't believe in it - honestly, that is a stretch of my imagination too far. When I die, that's it, I no longer exist, no pearly gates, no fiery pits of hell, just nothingness, so this must (and i'm sure did) stop me becoming immersed in the book. I had a similar problem with Luke's Physics of the Dead. J [...]

    5. Five stars just aren't enoughThis book just blew my mind. A Head Full Of Knives is absolutely original and impossible to predict; as soon as you think you understand what's going on you're taken in a different and unexpected direction, and it's brilliant. There are so many different layers that are brought together perfectly and once you see the entire picture, how complex and incredible this whole concept is, there is so much to consider so many possibilitiesmitless possibilities it's overwhelm [...]

    6. I hope that the authors imagination never becomes encumbered by the will of commercial priority. These books are fantastic and this is the best so far, better than stone man. This is as good as anything I’ve ever read and even if that’s not all that much, still credit given. I’ve read 4 books now and I will eventually read them all in between reading the dark tower series, I will say this, I look forward to Luke’s books as much as I do kings and I’m entitled to that. “Stay hungry”

    7. Although I liked Kill Someone a bit more, I still had fun with this book. Great use of dialogue and atmosphere, especially with the animals. If you like urban fantasy, then by all means read this book.

    8. Mr Smitherd has a head full of.me exceedingly dark corners.It's nonsense. But the way he writes it (beautifully, I may say) it all makes perfect sense.

    9. A man being watched all the time with a tragic event and a baby son to bring up who isn't who he thinks he. It also has talking animals.A psychological horror with twists and turns.Check it out

    10. Have you ever thought your dog or cat knew how you felt or what you were thinking? I believe most of us have and, "A Head Full of Knives", tell us we have been right--for reasons to be explained in the book.This book just flew by for me. I didn't want it to end. There were so many things I wanted to know (how many levels, who or what decided who went where, what the different levels looked like, and things you won't know until you read the book) that mostly went unanswered, just as in "The Physi [...]

    11. A Kick in the HeadLuke Smitherd continues to astound me. He is an original thinker, and it shows in each of his books, " The Stone Man", "The Man at Table Ten", "The Black Box 1-4" and "The Physics of the Dead". Each has been been built around his incredibly unique ideas, and written in that very tactile, in-your-face and edgy Smitherd style I've come to love.This novel is no different. In "A Head Full of Knives", Martin is a novelist with an infant son with his dog Scoffer, who lives a tortured [...]

    12. Worst reading experience of my life.I have always seen where people say they forced themselves to finish a book and I never quite got that, until this book. First, this book, the entire meaningful, and I use that word loosely, contents could have been reduced to 104 pages. That is, half the damn book. Rambling, filler, useless info, yes uselesssssssss!! Drawn out explanations, oh my gosh, it was like a possible good book buried under a mound of twat. Second, proof read, get your grammar together [...]

    13. An imaginative and engaging novel. The back blurb is kind of misleading, in that that theme is a fairly minor part of the novel, and was perhaps chosen more for being a non-spoiler than for being a more general description. I liked the overall story though, some fun ideas in there, with the caveat that the personal dilemma the main character faces seems overly contrived.Much like the The Physics Of The Dead the book ends with a plea for amazon reviews. The author's commentary with that was worth [...]

    14. Amazing!It took me a while to read this book (4 months to be exact) I'd read a bit then something would always come up meaning I'd have to stop but then when I had the time it took me 6 hours to read from 28% to 100 and all I can say is that this book is fringing amazing! I've never in my life read a book like this and the choices the author makes I couldn't so it even though it's in the best interest of the worldis book will captivate you me personally I'd say he's one of the best authors I've [...]

    15. Wow. Luke (may I call you Luke?) has done it again. This is the fourth or fifth Luke Smitherd book that I have read, and it just keeps getting better. The thing that I love about these books (and this one, especially) is that the author writes PEOPLE into his books. These are not characters, not caricatures, but people. I feel like I know them and sometimes they don't do laundry and they leave the seat up and they FEEL things that I feel and it's wonderful.I usually read a book like this in a ni [...]

    16. A Head Full of Knives by Luke Smitherd is a free bi ebook gifted to me by the author for review. I gotta admit that I chose to read this book on the evening of my dad's birthday, which wasobably not a good idea. This is the kind of deep, 80% pure cacao dark story that makes you consider topics, like mortality, strength of sanity, mania, self-control, and the breakdown of a perpetually 'normal' state that isn't externally visible to those that know you. Very much like the B-plot of an X-Files epi [...]

    17. This book was definitely a mystery in the fact I was trying to figure out exactly what was going on in the first place. It is definitely not a who done it mystery but I can say the premise was on I have never read before. There really were not many characters in this book as it centered only on Michael and his son. Though I will say his growth was really slow and I started to get tired of his constant see saw unable to make a decision on anything and wallow in his own depressiom.I did enjoy the [...]

    18. Once again Mr. Smitherd has captured my full attention from the first to the last page with the feeling of wanting more! It's always a pleasure to read his work, it's unlike anything else you'll find. To add a little more of a treat he does his own narrative in his audiobooks! Brilliant! This guy is on my radar and is seriously hopping ranks towards the Master of Macabre! Way to go Luke! Keep killing it! Jay

    19. This was a book that was hard to finish. I never really understood the point or plot. Maybe I am dense but this book had an interesting take on life after death but that's about it. The characters were well developed but I didn't feel a connection with any of them. Certainly didn't feel like a horror or thriller to me. This is my first book written by Mr.Smithereens and unfortunately will be my last. Just can't recommend this book.

    20. So, here's a story from Luke Smitherd, without any supernatural elements, that has managed to capture my attention. I must admit, at the beginning, i was i little skeptical, as i'm not really fond of diaries and that sort of writing, but as you progress further you can see that the story is beautifully crafted, and the characters and real and lovable. All in all, a fantastic read, for any Smithereen!

    21. An amazing imagination and mostly well-edited ("purveying" should have been 'pervading', for one example), A Head Full of Knives is complicated without being obscure. One can sympathise with Martin's ( the main character) confusion, even if it seems a little deliberately obtuse at times. This is my first book by Mr. Smitherd and I will read others based on how this book captured my attention.

    22. I had a lot of trouble getting into this book. It started very slowly, in my opinion, and I was incredibly confused by the events and multiple characters towards the beginning. It took a long time for me to figure out what was going on and who the main characters were. It was interesting once I got going, but there were many times in the first half or so that I almost put it down.

    23. I was disappointed by this book. A Supernatural Mystery Novel. I could not wait to finish it so that I could move on to my next book. The story line just never hooked me. Perhaps because I do not believe in the afterlife. Perhaps because the development of the story just never happened. The concept was interesting but it just did not work for me.

    24. I had a lot of trouble getting into this book. It started very slowly, in my opinion, and I was incredibly confused by the events and multiple characters towards the beginning. It took a long time for me to figure out what was going on and who the main characters were. It was interesting once I got going, but there were many times in the first half or so that I almost put it down.

    25. Excellent thought provoking work of originality,open your mind and take the step into this page turning novel, forget bad reviews,take a chance, think for yourself and then just begin to wonder

    26. I don't know what I expected going into this book, but it wasn't what I got. And that is not a bad thing! I really enjoyed it! I will likely reread AHFOK so I can pick up on the things I'm sure I missed the first time through. It was a very interesting and complex book.
