    One thought on “Fear”

    1. This is the first book I've read, I literally read it as soon as it came out of the package. Visually it caught my attention because the cover is different from the others book of L. Ron Hubbard, must be because it was probably one of the most recent works of this writer. Even Stephen King expressed his opinion about it, calling it "a classic tale of creeping, surreal menace and horror".I had to find out how good was this book if the master of horror was so fascinated about it. And I can honestl [...]

    2. I really like mistery and horror books, I always did - why, I don't know, since a lot of them gave me nightmares! This book was different. This book was mysterious and involving, without being introverting. It was incredibly good. The book takes you though a great description of the characters and their life, which turns more into a living nightmare for the main character. The end is as surprising as it gets - I had to read the last 2 pages a few times to make sure I understood it right - it was [...]

    3. As prolific (as in Guinness World Book of Records prolific) and significant as L.Ron Hubbard was of an author, the man is most well known for starting a cult. I was curious to see what his writing was like and this book was very well regarded as a masterpiece of psychological horror and a fairly noncommittal length of 101 pages. Originally published in 1940, it's surprisingly undated with minute exceptions of things like prices. I can see why this book got the acclaim that it did, though it didn [...]

    4. A great classic horror story!!! makes me wish that more horror writers could write a gripping tale like this one with out the use of monster/gore/ and other literary mechanisms that are not always necessary except for shock and filler

    5. Of everything I have ever read, this by far is the most frightening of all. King, Barker, Koontz; they are lightweight in comparison. I haven't stopped thinking about this story for years. It's that good.

    6. DO NOT be pulled in by the quote from Stephen King on the cover. Fear is a routine pulp thriller, and not one that has aged well. Avoid.

    7. This story was first published in the July, 1940 issue of Unknown, a fantasy pulp magazine edited by John W. Campbell. I was curious about the story partly because Hubbard is now remembered more as the founder of Scientology than as a pulp fiction writer. But apparently, Hubbard was a very prolific contributor to the pulp magazines before he organized his new religion/cult (take your pick). Hubbard was a major contributor to Unknown, which first began publication in 1939 and ran for only 39 issu [...]

    8. This book is great! Right from the start, you know something is going to go terribly, horribly wrong, and you will not be disappointed.The main character, Jim, suddenly realizes that four hours have passed, and he has no recollection of that time period! And to top it all off, he seems to have misplaced his hat during that time!So starts Jim's quest for his hat.Jim believes that if he finds his hat, maybe he'll remember how he lost it, and in remembering how he lost it, remember what has happene [...]

    9. 'Fear' by L Ron Hubbard is one of those books, which come along and surprise you. The story is from the horror genre, along with certain elements of fantasy. While not very gory, the tale is much more concerned with psychological horror. Certain scenes are atmospheric and creepy. A unique element of the narrative is the narrators description of his encounters of dark places and beings which seem to come out of nowhere; when he attempts to find clues to his lack of memory concerning four hours wh [...]

    10. While I mainly know Hubbard as the mysterious founder of Scientology, he first gained fame as a pulp writer. This book is considered one of his best, a horror classic almost from the moment it was published in 1940. While dated by modern standards (the stilted, rather wordy first chapter will put off some of the less wary or determined), this story thrills because of its still-scary idea. A professor loses four hours of his life one Saturday afternoon. Discovering what happened to him, he learns [...]

    11. Other reviewers have said it better but this was one of L Ron Hubbard's finest since Final Blackout. College Professor Jim Lowry, respected enthologist at Atworthy College. Back from the tropics with a touch of malaria. He mocks the demons and devils and they hear him! The story is quite gripping up to the very end when you see where Lowery's four hours went. And he even finds his hat. And his death! Highly recommended.

    12. L. Ron Hubbard is now synonymous with Scientology so often gets painted with the loony brush. As an atheist, I don't have much of a problem with Scientology. It's a belief-based organisation that tries to recruit you, change your way of thinking on the basis of nutty stories while taking your money in the process. How's that different from all the rest? But I digressL. Ron Hubbard was an author first and extremely prolific. Apart from his magnum opus Battlefield Earth, I didn't know any of his o [...]

    13. I feel vaguely guilty giving this a bad review, since the publisher's social media people encouraged me (and about a dozen others on ) to read it, and they were really helpful when I asked them questions.As much as I've liked some of L. Ron Hubbard's sci-fi, this just didn't click with me at all. Written in a simplistic style, Fear has a broad, but promising, premise. But, alas, only pays off in a series of disjointed non-events, only some of which are interesting. It's "and then . . ." storytel [...]

    14. Stephen King says in blurb on belly-band of hardcover edition: "If you've never read FEAR, I urge you to do so." In the Foreword King is quoted as saying: "L. Ron Hubbard's Fear is one of the few books in the chiller genre which actually merits employment of the overworked adjective "classic," as in "This is a classic tale of creeping, surreal menace and horror." If you're not averse to a case of the cold chills - a rather bad one - and you've never read Fear, I urge you to do so. Don't even wai [...]

    15. Currently, I have not gotten that far in the book, yet it shows promise. I like it, yet probably won't use it on the Anthology.The book was rather drab until Lowry lost his four hours, and I think that it will get much better pretty soon.The way in which Hubbard is able to weave the Malaria of Lowry and what Lowry thinks he sees into an almost real, yet somehow not real world.The way in which the author weaves a tail of suspense is truly amazing. As Lowry moves ever forward, you can almost feel [...]

    16. This tale rates a 4.5 stars for me. And it's by L. Ron Hubbard! Who would have thought it? My review is part of my discussion of novels eligible for the 1941 Retro Hugo Award in "Looking Back on Genre History" on Episode 427 of StarShipSofa.

    17. I didn't really anticipate the ending -- that probably says a lot about my naivete. However, the twist was well done and inevitable, simple yet very surprising.

    18. This story is by far the best horror story book I have ever read! The twist at the end freaked me out for days!!!!

    19. I don't like cults, or scams, and Scientology is both. I just wanted to state that because anyone like me will regard a positive review of a book by L. Ron Hubbard with suspicion. It's fairly famous that some of the reviews on Battlefield Earth were paid for (A.E. Van Vogt later admitted he'd never even read the book). This is a pre-World War 2 book and it, like Final Blackout, are generally regarded as pretty good pulpy stuff, unlike his later, post-scientology fiction. Regardless, when people [...]

    20. I was going to "DNF" this book but I have this (bad) habit of finishing every single book I start to read.Anyway, there were some very good, sort of philosophical paragraphs in this book which I really, really liked, but I can't give this book more than one star. I couldn't connect to the protagonist at all, and the plot was Don't know how to explain it other than it was messy (and not in a good way, if that makes sense. lol) It felt like the author just improvised it and the results weren't as [...]

    21. No matter how the title sounds this is not a scary book My mind is playing tricks on meI am not as stable as I used to beDo you feel secure about your own mind? Do you feel safe, and do you trust it? Can something flip the switch and suddenly you are no longer sane?Or maybe it is not you but powers beyond your control. Maybe there are really powers lurking at the dark corners of your room (and mind)?Prof. James Lowry is on a quest to find that. And of course his hat and 4 missing hours. The end [...]

    22. I can't, in good conscious, give this book anything more than 2 stars (and that's probably pushing it, morally for me), simply because of the extraordinarily HORRIBLE things its author would go on to do to people (his own "followers") in the following decades.I'm not going to lie though, this is a very well written, creepy horror story, even reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft (imho). A really quick, though absorbing read.I originally rated this a four stars. Then I had to just think about just who (o [...]

    23. The first fifty pages were really chilling and established an atmosphere and psychological direction that was really entertaining yet ambiguous. Then the writing turned surreal or attempted to be surreal and it lost me. It's hard to capture such a visually bizarre experience but it was just all over the place at that point.

    24. Дори фактът, че е писана през 1940 г не я оправдава. Нито пък това, че е преведена в най-добрите традиции на "мътните деветдесетарски". Скука и половина. Язък за загубеното време.

    25. Stephen King considers this a classic but I just don't see it myself. Ray Bradbury called it "a true scare" but I didn't feel it. It was ok.

    26. Someone told me this was good. It was definitely something.good not the word I would use. Bad was more like it.
