Blog Tour Stop - The Last Days of Jack Sparks by Jason Arnopp

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Last Days of Jack Sparks by Jason Arnopp!

 
 
The Blurb:
 


It was no secret that journalist Jack Sparks had been researching the occult for his new book. No stranger to controversy, he'd already triggered a furious Twitter storm by mocking an exorcism he witnessed. 

Then there was that video: forty seconds of chilling footage that Jack repeatedly claimed was not of his making, yet was posted from his own YouTube account.

Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed - until now.  

Prepare for the cleverest, most addictive thriller you will read this year. This is the story of the ill-fated Jack Sparks - a man who plays with fire, and pays the price . . .

What I Say:

I was really intrigued by this book before I started reading. It sounds so bizarre. I wasn't sure if it was meant as a spoof or a real, genuine horror/thriller told from a very odd viewpoint.

It was the latter. This book is sheer genius! So gripping from the off and so completely compelling, I defy you not to read it in one sitting. Jack Sparks is so different from anything else I have read yet I found it really easy and satisfying to stay engrossed in the pages. It's fast paced once it starts.

It's hard to review without giving anything away. I read a lot of other review before writing my own to see how others avoided this. Seems many people struggled with the same thing.

Basically, you need to read this book to find out for yourself. If you have ever enjoyed a Stephen King book, give this a shot. It's so different and completely bonkers in the best possible way.

Scary, creepy, thrilling and captivating. 8/10

What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
