(Synopsis from Goodreads.)
This might sound morbid, but as soon as I saw the cover, and heard the title of "How to Kill Yourself", I knew that I had to pick it up. I didn't even have to read the synopsis. The bright colors on the cover, and the girl with bright pink hair contrasted with the book title, and had me curious. I'm glad that the author was awesome enough to send me a review copy. With college unexpectedly happening, it took me longer than I would have liked to review this. I wish I would have gotten to it sooner. I really enjoyed it.
How to Kill Yourself was unlike anything I expected. The story line was morbid, and messed up, but the best way possible. I know it gets said a lot in reviews on blogs, but this story was unlike anything I have ever read before.When I say that, I definitely mean it. It was fascinating how the author created such an original story. I don't want to say much about the plot because I don't want to spoil it since it's such a short book. Holy crap though, the things that the author invents were fascinating. After the first chapter, I was a little confused about what was going on, but after the first couple pages, I understood. Also, the final battle at the end was exceptionally kick-ass.
C.V. Hunt was a new author to me before I read How to Kill Yourself. After reading the book, I will definitely be reading more of this author's work in the future. This book was a stand alone, but I hope they continue to write more books. I can't wait to see what kind of amazing things this author comes up with in the future. I recommend this book to anyone who like bizarro fiction, or morbid books.
I give How to Kill Yourself: 4/5.
