    Some other reviewers have likened the premise of THE HOUSEMATES to SAW meets BIG BROTHER but I would add on that there s a little Agatha Christi s AND THEN THERE WERE NONE mixed in no spoilers, just a reference The book delivers on desperation and gore while a group of strangers face their dwindling chances for survival The hollow personas of the roommates match those you would expect to appear on reality television, making them seem less the clich , but are further justified when the true natur [...]

    As the many others who have come before me have said If Big Brother, Survivor, Fear Factor, and SAW movies 1 1,000,000,000,000 had a massive love orgy, this book would come flying out like a buttered up turkey Listen, you won t solve world problems reading this book You won t acquire massive amounts of new super intelligent brain cells traversing the pages You won t even be surprised by anything in the plot and will totally see the ending from light years away However, all that aside, you will h [...]

    Twisted game show from hellJust when you think you re joining a game show for a lot of money, hell is unleashed This was a fun ride of emotion, secrecy, betrayal, and murder A bit like Saw, but better executed I think Bloody, literally, fun ride

    I suspect Iain Rob Wright likes reality TV about as much as I do Watching a bunch of talentless nobodies hamming it up for the camera, all in effort to win some inflated cash prize is not my idea of entertainment But add the threat of death to proceedings and I might be tempted to flip the channel Wright crafts a very fast paced and enjoyable read about a group of reality show housemates who quickly realise they ve effectively been kidnapped and are being forced to compete against one another to [...]

    Damien Banks believes that he s been given a fantastic opportunity to compete for two million pounds cash against eleven others in a ten day reality show competition But soon the sinister voice of The Landlord fills him and his housemates with dread as they realize that the stakes have changed and that they are now competing for their lives.Fast paced and incredibly entertaining, I really enjoyed this story The characters are realistic and relatable I pictured each one in my mind and quickly dec [...]

    This was my first of Iain Rob Wright s novels, and right from the start, I was hooked His pacing was perfect, characterization outstanding There are always those characters you hate, love, suspect right from the beginning, but IRW spins the story so that each subtlety of character has you constantly reconstructing and second guessing your original views As many readers already pointed out, the basic premise is a cross between a reality TV show , and the SAW movies If you love your horror with go [...]

    5 stars isn t enough of a rating for this bookIain Rob Wright just got himself a new fan, I freaking loved this book could not put it down and didn t want it to end

    Think of the reality show Big Brother mixed in with the movie SAW and you get this scenario I hope there is a sequel because there was a bit of a cliffhanger at the end.

    1 Cover It was what attracted me to get this book.2 Damien There s something about him that made me wanted to get to know him.3 Gore reality tv The former, I watched a lot Some could be mistaken as snuff film The latter, not so much Cliche for some but, refreshing for others.4 Narrative It hook me Towards the ending it was a bit abrupt but, maybe a sequel I want me Damien.5 Exciting The last time I felt like this was with Liar Games That was ages ago.And now it s time for me to go and stalk the [...]

    Wicked This is like the reality show BIG BROTHER but from Hell Basically, 10 people are chosen at random to participate in a Big Brother like competition for 2 million pounds There will be challenges and voting, and cameras Lots of cameras Soon, though, it becomes clear that these people were all selected for a reason Each participant has committed a crime for which someone wants them to pay So, their victims have paid for these criminals contestants to enter into this hell house where the elimi [...]

    This is the story of Damien Given the chance to appear on a reality TV show to win 2 million pounds, he readily agrees in order to help his close friend and work partner, Harry, who is terminally ill Shrouded in secrecy, he and the other contestants make their way to the house they will be staying in for the next 10 days Once there, they are introduced to the mysterious Landlord , known only by a voice over a loudspeaker made to do tasks and elimination challenges, it soon becomes clear that all [...]

    This was my second Iain Rob Wright novel my first was Animal Kingdom which only managed two stars for me I am so glad that I have some of his other novels as I really enjoyed The Housemates This is an author who should be well known and I will definitely be recommending this novel at least I need to read his others to horror fans that I know I am not a fan of the reality show Big Brother, but when the contestants are competing for their lives and enduring various torture tasks the idea suddenly [...]

    I was in the mood for some mindless fun and this fit the bill perfectly I suspected it would after reading Wright s Final Winter This is quite similar in a way borrowed from several books and movies, whatever happened to genuinely original ideas , although the editing is much on the level here, although note to authorgetarians eat eggs, vegans don t Agatha Christie has done it first and best as far as I know with the premise of strangers gathered in the same house and then eliminated one by one [...]

    An ok read, kinda like Big Brother with gore and deathCould have used an editors touch in places, but not a bad choice for wasting some time if you re into horror and gore.

    Do you like horror films like SAW or Hostel Like reality shows like big brother Well this book reminded me of all of those Much detailed review coming soon

    Not many books have me bowing to the author I grew up on Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Anne Rice, and you have to be a special kind of writer to obtain a horror bow from me With doing this blog I ve met so many great authors, but some just get to that point that is so far and away that you just have to bow to their special type of writing A writer so profound, so intense that you are left speechless while reading Speechless or writhing in your seat from fear or agonizing pain as your brain see [...]

    I didn t exactly like this book in fact I told my girlfriend that it was torture porn , but it held me enough that I really wanted to finish it, so there is that Perhaps part of it is my hatred of reality TV shows and general disdain for the people who use them to grub around for their fifteen minutes of fame I was therefore predisposed to dislike all of the characters To have it then revealed that the show was a hoax and that the participants were chosen to compete to the death due to bad deeds [...]

    The concept sounds straightforward enough twelve contestants, stuck in a house together for ten days, fulfilling or failing various tasks to determine the winners The last two men or women standing get to take home two million pounds It s just another stupid reality show until it rapidly becomes clear to the contestants that expelled from the house is a euphemism for brutally killed and what they re competing for is not just money but their very survival.Big Brother meets SAW in a gory, brutal, [...]

    I ll be honest, I found this book after searching horror on and deciding I liked the cover I heard that gasp I know I m not meant to judge books by the cover, but don t lie, you sometimes do it too I d never heard of Ian Rob Wright, but after reading the housemates I really can t understand why he isn t widely known, Basically, this story is almost like what you would expect to read if they wrote big brother rather than broadcast it but don t let that comparison scare you away This story does a [...]

    BIG BROTHER A hand selected group of people living together in a large house, with cameras continuously monitoring their every move SURVIVOR Contestants are forced to participate in Elimination Rounds to be able to stay until the next challenge JIGSAW, from the movie Saw Watches and records as the contestant tries to complete almost impossible challengesMATES A hand selected group of strangers living together in one house are forced to compete in challenges, trying to win immunity from the elimi [...]

    Get ready for the big show 12 people, 10 days and 2 million pounds Not a bad deal The game is not it what it seems, however, and the challenges are going to be killer The last one standing gets the cash Not as easy as it sounds really Let the games begin.I listened to this one on audio and it was excellent The pacing was perfect and the action kept the story moving at a brisk pace I have a hard time with some audio books because they are too complicated and I get lost sometimes Not so with The H [...]

    Where can you find Saw mixed with Big Brother and Hostel all in one book Right here The Housemates is a brilliant tale of people going on a game show, with deadly consequences.Loved the premise, the story, the characters, the flow Everything works so well in this novel, I finished it in one sitting The brilliance of this book is in it s simplicity The characters are people you would know The conversations sound real, and the story moves along with nary a glitch This is a mark of a professional w [...]

    I highly recommend this well constructed thriller through which the themes of retribution and ruthlessness run concurrently This book is definitely not for the faint hearted and is gruesome in places It s a well paced fast thriller but you don t lose any characterisations or atmosphere due to the pace It s a bit like Big Brother meets the Running Man meets the Saw films I hope very much to read from this author

    This book was wonderful My very first five star read in 2015 and it earned every star right to the end.Iain Robb Wright has the pacing thing down to a fine art so much so that I couldn t really find a slow spot to stop reading even though it was 2 or 3 in the morning For me to not recommend this author to my horror loving friends would be abuse on my part.

    Loved it Just loved it By far one of my favorite books I squirmed and had to put the book down a couple times But at the same time, I couldn t wait to find out what happened next Can t wait to read the next one.

    Really enjoyed this latest book, that takes the TV show Big Brother and turns it into a battle to the death Great concept and gruesome descriptive language as is the norm with novels by this author Couldn t put it down, but it ended far too soon Brilliant

    Reality Tv ShowThis reminded me of U.S reality show where people compete with other people tooth and nail to win a jackpot prize But this had some unexpected twists that made me fly through the book It was enjoyable and Damien was my favorite contestant.
