#BookReview It Will Be Quick. Karl Drinkwater

book cover 17

My first review in a while and what a book to review!

It Will Be Quick paperback 280 pages Published 01 November 2020 Publisher Organic Apocalypse Genre Contemporary Fiction Purchase Link https://books2read.com/b/ItWillBeQuick

A single decision can save – or ruin – a life.

An opportunistic baby theft by a young woman in pain. Two strangers shipwrecked on a lifeless rock, unable to speak the same language. An isolated cycling holiday descends into terror. One woman seeks the courage to destroy her life. A miracle unites a community, and teenagers take a stand against hypocrisy.

Karl Drinkwater presents characters to root for – and characters to dread – in sixteen tales of humanity, endurance, and spirit.


My Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My 3rd book by this author and I love how diverse they are with their writing. Having read both a horror short story collection which I enjoy immensely and a sci-fi story which is out of my comfort zone but was enjoyable, this for me is the best of all the books I have read by this author. This book comprised of 16 short stories tells the tales of real life horrors, grief, loneliness, anxiety and many other things, told in such a way that it is very believable, the rawness, the emotion and I actually felt very real. An intelligent and empathetic writer who has a clear understanding of the world around him and the truly horrific experiences that life can bring. A literary gem.

About The Author

 Karl Drinkwater writes thrilling SF, suspenseful horror, and contemporary literary fiction. Whichever you pick you’ll find interesting and authentic characters, clever and compelling plots, and believable worlds. Karl has lived in many places but now calls Scotland his home. He’s an ex-librarian with degrees in English, Classics, and Information Science. He also studied astrophysics for a year at university, surprising himself by winning a prize for Outstanding Performance. Karl is an active member of the British Science Fiction Association (BSFA), the Horror Writers Association (HWA), and the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi). When he isn’t writing he loves guitars, exercise, computer and board games, nature, and vegan cake. Not necessarily in that order.
