    1. I gave it 3 stars, but my average was 2.76 which is about where I would rank it for mejust below 3, but certainly above 2. There are some very good stories in this collection and I guess those alone warrant a 3 star rating, but the second half of this collection really lagged on excitement IMHO. For me the first story by Hurwitz remains the highlight of the collection.01 The Thief by Gregg Hurwitz- 5 starsOther than reading a short story bu Hurwitz in another ITW inc. anthology, I am not familia [...]

    2. I picked up this audio book because I loved the book "FaceOff" and I wanted to read more like it. Unfortunately, this book did not live up to my expectations. The audio was pretty good. I only skipped one book because of the audio which is pretty good for how many different people they have doing it. I averaged my ratings out to just under a two star and decided it was decent enough to bump it up. Some people might enjoy this book much more than I did, I just found the super short stories did no [...]

    3. Run, do not walk, to your nearest library or book store or computer with fired up AND GET THIS!!!! This is a collection of twenty-five short stories in the "thriller" genre, about eleven of which are by well-established writers you've heard of and the remaining fourteen are by relative newcomers. That's the point according to Lee Child, who acts as editor and contributor - to have just enough goodies by people you know so you buy the book and read stuff by the new kids. Added bonus if you get t [...]

    4. This anthology contains the writings of 12 bestsellers with 13 new writers, all of whom are associated with the International Thriller Writers, Inc. organization. Although quick reads for the most part, several of these short stories are rather pedestrian and predictable for anyone who reads widely. Unfortunately, Editor Lee Child’s “The Bodyguard” is among these: good fast-paced action with a weak ending. But balancing this assembly is Marc Paoletti’s “Chloe,” which is not a tale fo [...]

    5. The idea behind First Thrills was to showcase new talent in the thriller genre and use the internationally recognised authors to attract the readership. Six years after First Thrills was first published, the bestselling authors continue to be successful, but sadly none of the featured rookie authors have really gone on to better things. There were some great stories - The Thief by Gregg Hurwitz and The Dead Club by Michael Palmer stand out. But there were just too many mediocre stories that didn [...]

    6. I looked forward to this book, and was mostly happy with the short stories. I'm going to trust that the compiler/editor has a better sense of the genre that I, so I won't rate any story less than a "3". I figure 1 & 2 ratings didn't make muster with them. I obtained an average for the overall rating. Here's my rubric:3 - not my cup of tea; never grabbed me.4 - pretty good stuff; good story.5 - amazingI didn't want the story to end.4 - The Thief, by Gregg Hurwitz5 - Scutwork, by CJ Lyons4 - T [...]

    7. I normally stray from anthologies, but suddenly I am finding that this is the way to introduce myself to new writers. I find myself in a less likely mode to purchase anthologies simply due to the fact that short stories lack detail and without detail, they mainly fall flat. Most of the stories in this anthology did not fall flat, yet each of them can easily be expanded upon to make either a novel or novella. This anthology contains twenty-five short stories, each will make the reader eager to le [...]

    8. While they were all good stories, I didn't particularly care for the UFO one or the zombie one. I particularly loved Rebecca Cantrell's On the Train and Grant McKenzie's Underbelly. The book has achieved its purpose of introducing through a story, authors that a reader may not ever come across. I will look out for McKenzie and Cantrell now.

    9. This is a great anthology; in content, and in the very purpose of it. Lee Child has collected stories by well-known and successful writers and writers who are just getting started in the Thriller genre. The stories were all good, some were great, and there was even a Civil War era zombie story (every anthology should have a zombie story). I highly recommend this book!

    10. If you like Lee Child stories, this is a book of short stories along the vein of Lee Child. I found most of the stories interesting and I'll most likely check out many of the short story authors other best selling books.

    11. I have not finished this book yet, but have read several of the short stories. I am really liking it. They are short and written by the best thriller writers. The stories are reminisent of the Twilight Zone stories on TV years ago.

    12. It’s hard to build a “thriller” in just a few pages without going overboard or getting too quickly into the action. To their credit, all the authors in this collection do it. Highly recommended.

    13. A great anthology of thriller short stories - none relied on gore, shock or the predictable victim. Both new and established authors.

    14. Great stories from some of my favorite writers and lots of new creepy brilliance to check out. JT Ellison's story was my favorite, but they were all entertaining and well written.

    15. Zmiešanina poviedok od zavedených autorov trilleru a od nováčikov. Za mňa to bolo dosť rozpačité, našli sa dobré poviedky, ale väčšina bola dosť priemerná až pod priemerom. Chápem, že poviedka je krátky útvar, ale často aj samotná myšlienka bola veľmi skratkovitá a väčšinou som na konci ostala s výrazom "a teraz čo?". A ono nič. Skúsim aspoň veľmi rýchlo prebehnúť jednotlivé poviedky:*Zloděj - Greg Hurwitz - trošku weird, ale dobre vypointovaná, prečíta [...]

    16. I was pleasantly surprised here. I tend to stay away from short-story collections, just because I felt like I wouldn't like this format. But this book is packed with thrillers, and I loved most of them! There were only 1 or 2 stories that I really didn't like.I would recommend this in a heartbeat to anyone who likes thrillers.

    17. I received a complimentary review copy of First Thrills as part of the giveaway program.It's a nice hardcover book with the price of $25.95 US on the inside dust jacket. There are 25 stories in this collection, most of which are from thriller authors plus a couple mystery and even a little horror sprinkled in. There isn't any theme to the collection, which I think would have made it better, so if that's the only kind of collection you enjoy reading, you might want to keep looking.It's more like [...]

    20. The following is a First Reads giveaway winner review:As in all story collections you will have to take the good with the bad. Now the premise for the book I do like. A bunch of known thriller writers get together and write stories to be published for free. The reasoning is to sell a collection of stories that contains new writers they feel are going to be the next big thing. The part I found funny was that the big authors were the ones that I found that their stories sucked. Bill Camerons story [...]

    21. First Thrills, edited by Lee Child, is a curious compendium of short stories by well-known thriller writers (Jeffrey Deaver, John Lescroart, Stephen Coonts, Child himself) and first-time authors. The general theme is that of stories dubbed "thrillers," but within that category one finds hard-boiled, noirish horrors as well as spy stories, aliens-among-us tales, out-and-out horror tales, cons both large and small, vampires, ghosts and even a bit of poignancy. As with any such anthology, there wer [...]

    22. It's hard to rate a book of short stories unless they are uniformly good (or bad). Some of these stories I liked a lot, some not so much. But overall I enjoyed this book for the quality of the writing and for the imagination of the writers. Judging by this book, I will definitely be looking up the following volumes (I believe there are four more as of 2014) in this series.The series is produced by International Thriller Writers, Inc an organization that exists not only to promote thriller writin [...]

    23. What made me read through the collection of stories, was Lee Child's introduction. It really touched me how he and another 11 authors are giving a headstart to new writers in the short story world. And that is real nice, if I'd be writer too, I would be more than grateful to have such help. And it makes me proud to see that some of my fave authors are doing this. It makes me proud to have authors who want to keep the writing alive.The stories were good, and they were as promised, very thrilling. [...]

    25. I really liked this book and want to read the whole books that are in this one.The way that each chapter ends I feel a sadness because I want to read more of it and find out what happens next.I would definitely recommend this book for those who like thrillers and are looking for more thrills that they would be interested in. I also like that each chapter is about a different life and the characters are so unpredictable. You may think you know who the bad guy is but really you don't. Lee Child di [...]
