Hero Haters

Hero Haters by Ken MacQueen is not your typical heroic tale. This suspenseful book begins with a short passage, followed by a prologue that grips and holds the reader, drawing them into the storyline before everything starts. As the reader, you’ll quickly find yourself entranced with the haunting story about heroism and tragedy, summed up by Scott Fitzgerald’s quote, “show me a hero, and I’ll write you a tragedy.”

This crime story is chilling, with an air of suspense that captures the reader from the beginning. MacQueen skillfully presents the reader with a clear image of the scene without giving away too much at once, creating an intense atmosphere that’s provocative and thrilling.

The flow of the narration is impressive, with smooth passages keeping the reader in the dark while building momentum until developments become revealed. I found the style and pace ideal, and I never felt rushed or that the storytelling could have been more cohesive. The book’s overall theme, overcoming fear to become a hero, is an unlikely topic that many people can relate to on one level or another. MacQueen presents his perspective on heroism in a refreshing way while pushing the question, what does it mean to be a hero, and how does it involve tragedy?

Hero Haters by Ken MacQueen is a riveting crime thriller mystery. A suspenseful story with an original take on a common theme that has an added personal touch giving readers a deeper connection to its characters. I enjoyed the main character’s predicament and how he must decide if risking everything is worth a heroic act or if he’s destined for an ordinary life. It’s a great read that poses meaningful questions for the reader, especially about how becoming the hero can lead to someone’s tragic end and if this brave act leads to tragic consequences with certainty.
