Apr 2, 2011Krumbine seems to have a knack for writing books that I can't put down! d8 w/ d34th is a thriller that somehow manages to keep you turning pages until the end in 160 characters per page. It's not lengthy, but it is enthralling! Definitely a must have!
Jun 24, 2010"d8 w/ d34th" by Jordan Krumbine isn't Shakespeare –but that isn't the author's aspiration. This thriller @ 160 characters a page is an attempt to integrate new media forms like mobile phone texting or Twitter into a 'conventional' medium. In my opinion he succeeded brilliantly. It's difficult to believe that one could write a book with text messages and still keep the story fluent and cohesive. When reading it though, I discovered that there was so much more information besides the texts themselves: the time stamps of the messages give you a sense of pace... you find yourself wondering why a character is taking so long (or quick) to answer. This pulls you right into the story, making you wonder how you yourself would respond to the sinister chain of events unfolding before you. Blank pages (i.e. no answer from one of the two main characters) becomes very meaningful as well. Because there is so much room to read between the lines, the reader has to use his imagination. I...

All in all, this book was a real page-turner that leaves you hoping that you will NEVER receive a text message from this character in your life...< Less

May 24, 2009"d8 w/ d34th -krumbine" I recently completed reading d8 w/ d34th by Jordan Krumbine, and i must say i am quite impressed. The story is told through text (SMS) messages, an innovative way of writing. A psychotic killer engages the main character via text messages, manipulating her by commanding her to do tasks both simple and challenging. As, the story progressed i found it extremely hard to pull myself away from the book. (This often happens when I read books from Mr.Krumbine.) During some parts of d8 w/ d34th there are blank pages, this adds a mass amount of suspense and leaves room the reader to make assumptions of what will happen next. Overall, Krumbine's book contained tons of suspense and was a definate page-turner. I would Strongly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a new style of writing and of course suspense/horror books. I would be overjoyed to see a squeal of this book or another one similar to it. Even though this book is fiction, it still...

May 4, 2009"My D8 w/D34TH" D8 w/D34th is an exhilarating read with a heart-stopping storyline that leaves you wanting more, more, more! Not only is it a rarity in it's novelty nature, having been written solely in the format of text messages, but the messages themselves leave the reader's imagiantion to really set the scene meaning that no matter how many times you flick through it's pages this book is going to leave you as curious as it did on your very first experience with D8 w/D34th. Here's to hoping we see more from Jordan Krumbine, and soon! Jacqueline Jones, AKA XxJAGGEDlittlePILLxX
