    Description

    The sound hits Guy in some low, forgotten part of his psyche - a part of him that understands the truth about shadows. The part of him that knows the deep, dark truth behind fairy stories and myths.

    Guy is about to finish writing his breakthrough online article. He overheard the story by chance in a pub and it’s guaranteed to go viral - all he needs to do is persuade the World’s Unluckiest Man to talk to him. His best friend Larry’s quest for killer clickbait material has led him to a recently appeared shanty town in Glasgow, where he finds some kind of urban voodoo cult. Ex-cop Sam has already come face-to-face with the terrifying force behind both these phenomena, but he’s been trying to put it out of his mind.

    When Larry is killed in inexplicably gruesome circumstances, Guy knows he’s also a target. The evidence of malevolent power is suddenly proliferating - but why now? Together, Sam and Guy enter a shadow world of ancient monsters and modern curses, in a battle to figure out the rules of the game and bring them to the light before it’s far too late.

    From the best-selling author of the Stone Man series, You See the Monster is for fans of contemporary horror books at their most darkly inventive: a chilling, high-concept fable for our times.

    I Liked it.

    I very much enjoy this mans work. It's always very creative and a good time. I think you do an excellent job narrating too. Keep it up Luke. I'll keep buying them. Smitherd's stories are never quite what I expect and pulls me along in whatever direction they're going, like being fairly drunk and led astray by a mischievous yet well intentioned friend.

    Curse of the Demon

    This killer novel gave me visions of the movie Night of the Demon (Curse of the Demon in the US) with a technological twist. Also, a very strong message on modern society's addiction to screens and social media. An added bonus was Luke Smitherd's narration.
    I Loved it!

    Five Stars *****

    The best and most frightening in ages........

    Although I read everything else, too, I have always loved horror and fantasy and this one knocked my socks off! I often listen as I go to sleep and back up later to catch what I might have missed but this one I could not listen to in the dark! There are sections, (many sections!) of this book that turned me into a quaking 12 year old! The monsters are stealthy, horrible and completely nasty and if they were real I would check out fast! This is a modern horror tale that will raise the hairs on the back of your neck and make you jump - I nearly punched my sweet cavalier spaniel when he climbed onto my hip in the bed because I was so engrossed. Highly recommend for horror fans! This is also the best reading by an author that I can remember.

    I am Smithereen!

    As usual Luke Smitherd presents a great story! I am personally a huge fan of his ability to draw the reader/listener into the beauty and so often the horror of real human emotion. His character development is captivating especially as he places them in the most unusual of situations! I do agree with his view on the over use of social media and I appreciate the way he presents it.

    Brilliant, Brilliant, and More Brilliant!!

    Congratulations Mr. Smitherd! You have done it again! I would love to say that this is my favorite book of yours, but I love it just as well as everything else you have written! Your narration is, as always, perfectly done! I have long wondered why your fabulous story The Stone Man hasn’t been made into a movie… and I think this one is absolutely suited for the screen as well! I am thrilled to hear there will be a Stone Man 3 and 4! Now I’m off to read the extra chapter you’ve sent to your followers! Thanks for another Amazing Work!!

    Modern horror novel indeed!

    Best book I've read in a while. I am easily bored with slow pacing, but this book was engaging the whole way through. Loved the way modern technology was seamlessly blended into the occult horror setting. Also, Luke Smitherd does a lovely job with the narration.

    Another gem

    Another gem from Smitherd. I can’t get enough of this guy’s books. As always, his creativity (in this case it’s the monsters themselves) is top notch. As always, the characters are relatable and likable (except when we’re supposed to hate them). As always, I had to pause the audiobook several times to think things through for myself… “How would I react if I saw a monster?” / “How would that scene with the YouTube video play out in real life?” / “What is the bigger societal message here?” I just love it when a story can entertain me and get me thinking too.
    Well done, sir. Looking forward to the next one.

    if you liked "the last days of jack sparks..."

    this is a weird way to start a review, but when I finished another book, "the last days of jack sparks," all i wanted was another book just like that. which there wasn't. i considered king, katsu, bellingrud, origin of dracula, even Grady hendrix... but, ultimately, none scratched the itch. so now, a couple years later, I see that jack sparks is being made into a big box office movie. directed by Stephen Spielberg? Soderberg? I forget. but that means good things for the writer of that book. really good things. for starters, the writer will almost certainly make lots more money, get much more favorable publishing terms and get them more easily, and his next few releases are guaranteed to enjoy a wide readership among the hugely influential audience that is the entertainment business. now, I dont know if this book—you see the monsters—lends itself to film as well as sparks does, but I dont see why not. and as far as ebing exciting goes, it's all that and a can of coke. its interesting all over, builds to several wild and emotional climaxes, features tons of interesting characters and is peppered with novel ideas throughout. id say this book is everything jack sparks was and then some. it's a modern-day supernatural horror/thriller that involves (but is not overtly about) social media and societal trends at large. and it has soooooo many creepy ideas and scenes. omg, so many. the scene where sam and guy are investigating the new shanty village out in the field (while reviewing barney the dog's instagram feed). or when guy is trying to unscrew the fake outlet cover where his buddy hides his weed while the thing is materializing in the upstairs bedroom. the planning of guy's whole post-revenge sequence (which I obv won't divulge here). the two old ladies in the church. guy's affliction! man, just his affliction alone is skin-crawling! then there's the whole sequence at the BBC taping. the list just goes on and on. it really is brilliant. file under "more good news:" the main characters dont make one idiotic decision after another. the driving evil is vague and changeable. the characters are smart and real and dont fall into ludicrous plot traps because there are none. its so good, in fact, that im actually worried right now that ive done Luke and his book a disservice by comparing it so vehemently to the sparks book. like, maybe I robbed this book of some of its own, and very well deserved, thunder. or that I somehow implied it's too similar and therefore almost redundant to sparks. which it is not. at all. to be clear, the two books are totally unrelated and really quite different. what they do share is a) supernatural forces b) horror elements and c) the setting being modern day england (primarily). beyond that, the nature of the stories, the writing style, the main characters, the resolution, even the evil and the mystery thread are all wholly unique to each other. I could've just as easily compared it to the rivers of London series by ben aaronovitch although this and sparks are both darker/edgier than aaronovitch. nonetheless, here I am wondering if i should go back and rewrite this, sans all the sparks references. hang on. okay. no, i will not. here's why: because, given that sparks is such a successful book, perhaps making reference to it here will draw more readers to this book, something that it richly deserves. in fact, at the end of this audiobook, the author comes on and mentions that not one of his books has ever been properly or officially published whatever that means. if thats true, thats a crime y'all. a real tragedy. and if "the stone man"—which im diving into right now—and luke's other books are as good as this one, he absolutely deserves a wider audience. and a publisher! and a Netflix series. so I guess, Im trying to help this guy achieve those things with my admittedly heavy-handed jack sparks comparisons. so take it from me, if you liked "the last days of jack sparks," you will love, "you see the monster." you will.

    Smitherd Smashes it Yet Again!

    I've listened to all of Luke Smitherd's books (some more than once) and loved every one of them. Smitherd is a double threat because, not only are his books innovative, exciting, and sometimes terrifying, he's also an incredible narrator. I know that some listeners are wary of audiobooks that look self-published and are narrated by the author. But, when it comes to Smitherd, the author narration is a good thing. He understands his own characters and really nails the dialogue. Never mind that you'll never be able to guess what's going to happen next. The edge of your seat will be worn out by the end. Highly recommend!
