Thinner – Richard Bachman

Review of Thinner by Richard Bachman

Review done by Hantie Hartzenberg

Hi booklovers!

My wifey bought me a brand spanking new copy of this very old classic story for my birthday. Just after I finished Rage of Richard Bacman. So, I thought, why not read it now.

Do not read Richrd Bacman books consecutively, you’ll crack mentally. For those of you who had done it before…. a famous quote: “We are all mad here!” Hahahaha.

Anyhow, I read the book. Just as in the long walk and rage, nothing spectacular happens. Really. No action, drama. No serial killer. No excruciating detail of crime scenes. The main character is just losing weight. That’s what happens. That is the very, very scary part of this book. This is what keeps you nailed to it. This is what drives you mad. Because how much is enough?



Billy Halleck, good husband and loving father, is both beneficiary and victim of the American good life: He has an expensive home, a nice family, and a rewarding career as a lawyer…but he is also fifty pounds overweight and edging into heart attack country.
There was a movie made off this book. Check out the trailer here: thinner movie – Google Search
Enough from me. Go get the book and read it. It is really worth it.
