      Housebroken by The Behrg is one of the worst books I have read. If someone wants to read just torture and cruelty, this is your book. No plot, flat characters, and inhuman atrocities. Two guys invade home. Hold family captive to observe them. Any of them break their rules they are violently punished. Violent is not even a strong enough word. They burn the dog up, set the wife on fired so much more. Yeah, this kind of book. No plot. You never find out why the guys are there. You find out a little [...]

      You know you love a book when you start it and before you blink you are nearly at the end of the book. The world might have vanished whilst you read it but you HAD to read to the end. This is one of those books. How to express how much I loved this book? Let's give it a goThe pace in this book is cracking! Once it grabs on to you it does not shake you off, it's not a book I needed to put down at anytime. It was a fascination with a really interesting and brilliant plot, some outstanding characte [...]

      . . . with time, even the most grotesque of horrors could become commonplace.Meet Joje, a young man with orange-ish hair, freckles, a speech disorder straight out of Looney Tunes land (think Elmer Fudd), with the muscles of his face crawling with tics and twitches. Lest you begin to grin, stop it. He is in your house, and he is a psychopath. On the upside, he promises his stay is for one week only and that he is only there to "observe". Your family is on the line here, and all you have to do to [...]

      Hours after finishing this book my brain is still trying to figure out what I just readwhat a ride!!!I'm not going to burden you with what this book is about as I think the synopsis does a great job of wetting your appetite, and I'm not sure how I can get into too much more without revealing spoilers. What I will do is share a bit of my experience about how this book will make you feel, and how to get the most out of this ride.The first thing I quickly realized is that this is one of those books [...]

      4.5 stars, rounded upBROKEN is the first novel written by The Behrg. this book was terrifying not only for some of its horrendous scenes, but even more so because of the psychological aspect to it.Blake Crochet, his wife, Jenna, and son, Adam are taken prisoner in their own home–forced to go about their everyday routines as if psychopaths weren’t watching their every…single…move at ALL times. The violence was quite brutal at points, but what was even worse was the mental and emotional ab [...]

      Thrillers can be a dime a dozen. I’ve read so many over the years that I hesitate half the time to start a new one, fearing it will be the same old rehash as the last one. Housebroken looked different enough to be promising, holding something fresh and twisted, so I hopped on it with hope, and let me say that I’m glad I did, because I haven’t read anything quite like this one.It almost feels like a lifetime is covered in this novel, so much happens in so little time, yet it doesn’t quite [...]

      Housebroken is an action packed horror thriller about a family who are held hostage in their own home, and much, much more!I found this book so hard to put down, eager to find out what was going to happen next. It was tense, very tense, scary, sometimes terrifying, occasionally graphic and most certainly claustrophobic at times. While my own mind was desperate to get out of this book, my hands refused to let go of my Kindle.You know that on edge feeling that horror films in the 80s and 90s used [...]

    8. Stefanie on said:

      Rating 5 Stars!Wow!! This book definitely deserves a resounding (and clichéd) WOW! I LOVED this book, it had me at by the end of the first page and I couldn't put it down. Really one the best books I have read in awhile. Housebroken is the debut novel from The Behrg. It is a unique take on a classic plot: a family is kidnapped. Nothing about this book is predictable ! Just when I thought all the plot twists had been revealed, WHAM! I was hit with another one. This is certainly an edge of your s [...]

      “Better be the devil you know than the devil you don't.”----Jack Heath, an Award-winning Australian author The Behrg, an American author, pens his debut thriller, Housebroken that accounts the story of a family who are taken hostage by two psycho kidnappers who only wanted one thing from that family- observe the normal daily routine of that family for a week. Sounds weird as well as thoroughly creepy! Warning: This book is not for those who have a faint/weak heart that can't handle too much [...]

    10. Bill on said:

      This is not your average home invasion and kidnapping story. Not by a long shot. It is pure 100% “cwaziness.” 1 family. 2 psychos. 3 rules. The Behrg did a very good job building a palpable sense of tension and dread in this one. There is a lot going on and it would have been easy to get lost in all the action, but somehow it all held together and flowed smooth.Very well done. Solid 4+ Stars and Highly Recommended!

      Blake Crochet was a very successful business man. Crochet and his family were taken prisoner at their own home. The two kidnappers wanted the Crochet family to follow there daily routine, so they could observe them. The kidnappers had a set of rules and you better not break them. Blake and his family broke a few of these rules and they paid dearly. The violence was very brutal at time and the emotional abuse that the family was put through was unbelievable. This Psychological/Thriller was jammed [...]

    12. Liz Barnsley on said:

      Housebroken is a horrifyingly excellent fast paced thriller, dealing with a uniquely styled home invasion and with tension that never lets up.Gripping from the very first page, it is relentless in it's descriptive prose and utterly engaging - with a nop notch "bad guy" some elements of family drama and a seriously evil ironic edge to the writing style. I was completely enthralled from beginning to end. I literally couldn't look away.Yes there is a high level of violence here - if you are senstiv [...]

    13. Vicki Willis on said:

      This book was horribly disturbing in the best kind of way. A story of domestic terror when a family is kidnapped in their own home, forced to do unthinkable things. It makes one think about how far one would go to protect his family. The characters were good and the action non stop. It was hard to put this one down. There was a psychological tension that kept me on edge. Lots of WTF moments.A must read for those who like it over the top.

    14. Renita D'Silva on said:

      Loved this amazing book. Could not put it down. A page turning, addictive, action packed thriller, this book burrows into your imagination, takes it captive. I could see events as they unfolded, participate in the horror. I was taken captive along with the Crochet family and felt every emotion personally. Scary, terrifying, chilling , amazing. This is so much more than just a story, it is an experience. Loved it, although I emerged more than a little shaky at the end. Please read this. A wonderf [...]

      “If God created Earth in seven days, Joje had learned to destroy it in six.”*edit* I found myself thinking a lot about this book. While it's flaws stand, after time has passed, I feel comfortable giving it five stars. Nothing is perfect, and we shouldn't expect things to be.Thank you to the author and the publicist for this copy and the chance to provide an honest review of the novel.Housebroken is an incredibly well-written and fast-paced horror/thriller that will continually surprise and d [...]

      I received a free copy from the author and his publicist in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, The Behrg!This book is not recommended for people who read while their spouses sleep. The bags under my hubby's eyes can only be explained by an inordinate amount of yelling, gasping and almost jumping out of my skin. It begins as the kidnapping of a whole family inside their own house, but it is so much more. All the twists and turns are just unexpected and very well thought out. Nothing is wha [...]

      Review: HOUSEBROKEN by The BerghWhen I was a kid, I was scared of a lot of irrational things; my constant consumption of horror fiction, "true supernatural," and B-grade horror films I'm sure didn't help. Then I grew up and switched my focus to serial killers, both fictional and real, and to studying the psychology of human nature. Now at my advanced age, I don't worry about axe murderers or serial killers lurking in the hedges; other than asteroids, meteors, and EMP' s, my one remaining phobia [...]

      I will never look at a person selling door to door magazine subscriptions in the same way again! This was a horrifying home invasion tale with plenty of twists that keeps you guessing until the end.I got this free through the Kindle Scout program after having been selected for publication. Recommended for horror fans.

      Another new author to me another author to watch for in the future.A family is taken hostage in their own home. But there is no ransom to be demanded. The hostage takers have their own agenda and the family will soon learn that no matter what there are always consequences for your actions or inactions.First the good things. It started out really good! Made me want to forget everything I had scheduled and just sit and read. (which I did). And then it kind of bogged down for me temporarily.One [...]

      Many thanks to Maxine for a free copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.So quite an entertaining read. Like other reviews this reads like a film and is jam packed with violence, torture, tension and twists and turns. Keeps you turning the page though for me it dragged a wee bit in the middle, like there was just a little too much packed into it which made it lose a bit of its shock value, however the story did pick up again towards the end. Whilst I get the driver of the book, it reli [...]

      WOW!! This is definitely probably 1 of the best books I've read this year definitely in my top 10 list & definitely one of my favorites now. There was sooo much action & suspense & twists & turns!! IMO there wasn't a dull moment in the book & it keep you on the edge of your seat mouth open the whole time. The characters were great & very believable. The story is just intense & scary & as the book goes on the more detail it gets into. There are so many twists & [...]

      Blake Crochet is a successful business consultant who has just moved to Malibu and is about to start a new job when his family is held by a couple of interlopers in their own home, who are brutal and violent. However, it's not clear what these men want and Blake has to do as he is told if he doesn't want his wife, Jenna and son, Adam harmed. Fast-paced and full of action this mystery thriller kept me glued to its pages until the early hours of the morning. There are twists and turns you won't se [...]

    23. Shannon Mcfarland on said:

      Housebroken is a gets you thinking thriller. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were written with such depth that you had sympathy for Blake's family. This book takes you through every family's worst nightmare with numerous psychological twists and turns. A great read.

    24. Dawn on said:

      This book was so very awesome. Stirred a lot of emotions in me. The characters were pretty vivid, except the ones it was scarier to know in less depth. Lots of unexpected twists and turns. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a thriller!

    25. Karl Drinkwater on said:

      I read a lot, and impressing me is not easy. I read this book in two sittings reading until 2am (there's symmetry for you). I hadn't felt such a compulsion to finish a book for some time. It was particularly refreshing after reading a few books recently that were slogs to get through, including a novel by one of the world's most famous authors.Housebroken by The Behrg is controversial. It has many great reviews. Also some that warn of cruelty, toxic scenes, and people who stopped reading before [...]

The details of our lives between the numbers? No one remembers that. They're just locked up in some forgotten vault."*** A copy of this book was kindly provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

      3.5 stars For the sheer terror of it, Housebroken gets all the stars. For the pacing and suspense, it also gets all the stars.I read this in a day, only putting it down to do what I absolutely had to do. And there were moments I felt ill, imagining the trauma these characters endured.So if you love a good scare, this will keep you enthralled.However, there were a few detractions.There's a bit too much going on here - who's really in charge? who's actually who? what long-lost connections are unco [...]

      Wow.This is a great story, written expertly with style and plotted to perfection. If I knew how it would grab me in its vise-like horrifying grip, I doubt that I would have started reading it in bed one night.This disturbing horror/suspense novel is unsettling, but in an engrossing, entertaining way. I'm not one to read an entire story through. I usually read for an hour or so before my eyes get heavy, but I read Housebroken in two long sessions. The action is genuinely exciting but isn't so ove [...]
