Die-Fi Experiment – Review


Amazon/Goodreads

Hey guys! I am alive!! Haha, but seriously. Between finishing my degree (YASSS I am smart now) and working a lot of overtime, I just have not had the time to do a review. Luckily, this short little number was calling my name and I was able to squeeze it into my busy schedule. Let’s dive in……

The author of this short little novella approached us for a review and I immediately jumped on it because I love this sort of thing. However, this type of story has been done and it has been done in so many different ways, it almost isn’t original anymore. I watch A LOT of horror movies and I have read/DNF’d quite a few horror books. A couple which actually had this same story line, but with different characters. I’m not saying this was copied in any way, I am just saying it is an idea that has been run into the ground, that’s all.

I wanted to love this but I didn’t. I went into it wanting more originality, I wanted it to be different from the versions I have already seen. Don’t get me wrong, there were differences, but they just weren’t that great in my opinion.

This story is about a couple who finds themselves fighting for their lives for the internet to watch. Some scenes in this story were graphic and brutal and I loved it. It made me squirm and I felt genuinely creeped out….then came the hashtags. Random hashtags where random hashtags did not need to be. They almost seemed comical in times where comedy didn’t fit in the story. It didn’t work for me. I am already not a huge fan of hashtags, but it almost seemed inappropriate in some areas of the book. For example, there is a scene where the narrator is talking about him and his wife fighting for their lives and he literally goes “#firstfightasamarriedcouple #nomakeupsexafter” or something similar. I was so turned off by that hashtag nonsense that I just became annoyed.

Also, the ending was terrible. I won’t spoil it, but I will say that I expected more. It was sweet and cute but gah! I wanted more.

I like some of the ideas with this story and can tell that the author has an amazing mind. This story just wasn’t for me.

With that being said…..if you would like to check it out, it is a super short read and will take you hardly any time at all.
