The Good Samaritan Reviews
5+++ Wonderful Stars
Wow, such an amazing story! I loved LOVED it! It was my second read by this author but as my previous read by him wasn’t that good, this one compensated it! This book took me out of my comfort zone (pushed me so hard) and let me tell you this one was an uncomfortable read but I’m glad I read it, it was definitely worth it! It was a really good psychological thriller, a page turner one, I couldn’t put it down and I was on the edge of my seat all the time! Well done Mr. Marrs!
Trigger alerts include suicide and depression. If you are feeling suicidal I’d encourage you to go to www.befrienders.org and find the details of an organisation in your area that can help. Helpline volunteers are truly remarkable people who deserve way more credit than they receive!
There’s a visceral quality to John Marrs’ writing that I love! I read the blurb and immediately judged Laura. I mean, there you are, at your wits end and you call End of the Line. A woman named Laura picks up the ph ...more
EXCERPT: I listened with blissful satisfaction right until her final breath. That's the one sound that matters to me above all others. . . that one precious moment when someone breathes their last, then slips away. People in pain, like Chantelle, place themselves in my hands because I understand them better than anyone else in the world. I know more about what they need than their brothers, sisters, parents, spouses, best friends or children. I understand them because I know what's best for them ...more
There is a suicide hotline called End of the Line, and you'll know when you've reached it. The volunteers who man the lines are there to listen. One of the volunteers is Laura, wife, mother of three, non-threatening, helpful, and always in control. She cares. You have no idea how much.
A riveting game of cat and mouse, who is the victim and who is the prey? Changeable, or one and the same? Great psychological suspense that hit all the right notes for me.
Holy crap, this besauch is 50 shades of nuts and it's fabulous. So wrong and so, so, great!
Laura works for End of the Line, a helpline for those experiencing emotional distress-- a place for them to be heard. But when Laura speaks to clients, her intentions, no matter how justified she believes them to be, are quite sinister. She has successfully assisted many individuals, via phone, in ending their own lives.
But when Laura's path crosses with that of Ryan, things start to get a little rocky for her. Because you see, Ryan thought he had everything in life ahead of him... he and his w ...more
“When you’re not considered to be a threat, you can get away with much, much more.”
I have one word to say about this book. BRILLIANT!
I highly recommend The Good Samaritan for those who like unreliable narrators, unpredictable twists and a healthy amount of creepiness :D.
The suspense during reading this well-written book was unbearable. The portrayal of a narcissistic personality was impeccable. I specially loved the change of narrators every so often, giving a sudden shock to the naive reade ...more
Trigger warning: Suicide
"I will save them from themselves. That is what I am: a saviour of lost souls."
If you are looking psychological thriller, something really dark, controversial, well written and uncomfortably captivating, this is definitely the book for you. This will be a book you will NEVER forget. Although I haven't read a John Marrs book before, I really enjoyed his writing and this novel and will be seeking more novels from him in the future.
Volunteers at End of the Line hotline are t ...more
