E-book gifted by the author for reviewEmily Ruth Fleischer is a child that has grown up with a family that loves her, but not in a way a child should be loved, Emily's family is full of secrets that can kill. Emily starts hearing a voice that she thinks is her imagination, but it is far from it. Will this be the help Emily is hoping and praying for, or will it be the final thing that pushes her over the edge into the craziness that seems to affect her parents?The one thing that kept going throug [...]
A very morbid, shocking, chilling, and horrific tale of the goings on in the Fleischer home told from the POV of an eleven-year-old girl named Emily. Please be advised that the contents of this book are so disturbing that if you are unable to handle the subject matter of physical and/or sexual abuse, this novel is not for you.
I would like to thank Wendi Starusnak for sending me 'Detached' which I won through First Reads.This is one of the best books I've read for some time and shall look forward to the next book. From the very first sentence, the book grabbed my attention. What a page turner! It is based around the Fleischer family and I felt as if I was in that house watching them all. Unlike some books being predictable, this book I never knew what was going to happen next. When you think things couldn't get worse [...]
Abusive family never felt that real And scary. I spent 3 days with this book but its families abusive relationship had me begging please stop. It feels like you're there yourself and it's horrible. Horrible in a good way because this book grabs you and never lets you go. So good.
An absolutely horrific story, but I couldn't stop reading it. Definitely not an easy read, so be warned before trying to tackle it. It seems strange to give such a story 5 stars due to the tragic and harrowing contents, but it was a 'great read' (can't really think of how else to word it!) I'm immediately going to start reading the second book.
Wow, I'm almost finished with my cousin Wendy Starusnak's novel Detached, and I must say how much I love this book. I have read many, many books and novel, but none of the books I read have I connected to the characters like I have in detached. With every sentence, every chapter I grew closer to the main character, I felt for her, I understood her.This book will have you crying, laughing, and at times so mad you will want to break something, but its impossible to put down, I had to set an alarm [...]
Beyond MentalA very amazing book this was. The entire plot is not for the faint of heart, but if you are interested in the book do consider keeping a strong stomach. My only complaint would be the pacing, but once I came to the end it fit the story quite well. I recommend this book to anyone that likes a slow burn of a suspense novel with a satisfying ending.
Wendi, You have, by far, outdone yourself yet again. I was hooked throughout the entire book.
Somewhat confusing, as if written by two different people. First half I went along, enjoying it (if in a horrified way, not for the faint hearted), but then the father's evil escalates to a point where it just gets comical, and none of it shocks you anymore. The writing, which is done from a 12 year old's POV, is done well at first, but that degrades, too, as if there is a hurry to move the story along. The author mixes up the two daughters, referring to Emily as Caroline more than once, and tow [...]
This book is messed up to say the least. If you have a weak stomach don't read it.
Not sure where this author came up with such horror but I couldnt put the book down - WOW!
Horrific but couldn't stop readingI read it in less than 24 hours. It was awful, sad, horrifying, but could not tear myself away. Going to buy the next book asap.
Reviewed by Jetana Mutter*This book was provided for an honest reviewThe world can be an undeniably horrific place when it wants to be- using people as the real life demons they portray themselves as. Everyone is capable of committing good and bad; for every light there is a darkness. The unfortunate truth is that some people allow the darkness to take over them- feeding on the fear and power they get from their victims. Abuse can happen at any time, to any person… there is no certain ‘thing [...]
CaptivatingFascinating story of psychological breakdown under trauma. Seamlessly written, constantly on the edge of horror and hope. Great for fans of Steven King.
I have the hardest time looking at this womans last name, without thinking I need a snack, I swear. I type it, and it’s, “You start, you snack.” Her name should not be legal. I’m sorry, I just had to put that in there. She probably gonna blow a gasket when she reads this…LOLNow then, onto my review. Let me just start by saying did you look at the cover? No really. Did you happen to look at the cover? You look at it and know, I better not read this in the dark, and I better not sleep al [...]
I absolutely love dark and evil books and I live for the one that will warp my mind and make me understand the bad person’s motives, but this one went even farther. I think every boundary I have as to what I will read was pushed with Detached. This one has to be the darkest and most evil story that I have encountered in all of my years of reading.So many times I wanted to stop reading because it crossed the line, yet I kept reading because I was already invested in Emily and couldn’t just le [...]
An excellent book – not for the squeamish, nor the faint at heart. This book paints a ghastly and very descriptive tale of some of the worst abuse you could imagine – or not imagine. Lord, it made me wonder if author, Wendi Starusnak, was abused or just has one of those wonderfully demented kind of minds.The Fleischer family is anything but normal. 11, just turned 12 year old Emily narrates a vividly detailed account of the horrific life of her family. The mother and all 4 children ( only 3 [...]
There have been very few books which have played with my emotions and my mind as much as this one has. The story and subject matter are so twisted that I am awed the author had the idea and the skill to put it down on paper.This story deals with murder, incest, rape, depravity, spousal and child abuse, and a doll. But it is not overly gory or filled with glorified sex scenes. However, you will see it all in your mind! This is a beautifully written book. The characters are mind boggling. The acti [...]
Well brace yourself before sitting down to read this one. It reads like a children's story, since it is from a child's POV, but nothing about this is a fairy tale. From the beginning the reader is thrown into a story of a family that is belittled, berated and abused in every way imaginable. The horrors that Emily describes to us are sometimes too terrible to get through (some parts I had to skip over as I couldn't handle it)3/5 for the writing style, as it was sometimes difficult to follow the j [...]
This story is told in an Eleven year old's point of view. Emily is abused by her father, mother, and sees things no child should ever have to see. Julie, which is an alter personality, tries to take over to help her through the horrific times. Emily fights to keep her from surfacing. When she does, it isn't pretty. This is a horrific tale of what some children actually can go through. This book isn't for someone who can't handle abuse and adult material.I'd recommend this book if this is the kin [...]
Wow. What can I say about this book? This book is about Emily, Caroline, Johnny and Eric, their family. This is a very dark disturbing book. It is from Emily's point of view about her life in the Fleischer family. Things children shouldn't see or take part in or have done to them.I was very shocked by this story but could not put it down. I had to find out what happened, to learn about the voices and if it will ever end happy.This book was very well written, and I am glad I got the chance to rea [...]
Radically demented! I actually started this series off by reading book 2 of the Fleischer adventures. I enjoyed it so much that by the time I had gotten halfway through, I was already looking forward to reading books 1 & 3. Detached: Book 1, has not disappointed in the least. This is one twisted family! Prepare yourself, this is not reading for the faint of heart. But if u have the cahones to go in eyes wide open.This book will deliver, in a big way!
I couldn't put this book down. I had to know what was happening. I haven't read a book like this in quite a long time. With everything going on, I had to take breaks, but when I was away from this book, I constantly wondered what was going to happen. I wanted to save this little girl from the life she was living. The words fell from the book and literally hit you in all of your feels. Such an amazing book!
It was a very disturbing book. I wanted to put it down and not finish, but I had to keep reading to find out if things get better. It was like passing a train wreck, you have to look. Definitely an adult read only.
I could not stop reading this book, a great read! The events that took place in this book really made me sick! I wanted to be scared and I sure was. Can't wait to read the next one!
