    Enjoyed the Read

    Although the stories are short and can be finished quickly, each one is unique and lend themselves to busy schedules. I would recommend this book to those who may be short on time but like a good read.

    Ok

    Some stories were good, others seemed to have annoying repetition.

    Modern Style Horror

    Modern horror; not in classic Victorian or 19th century classic style. Readers warning: profanity is abundant.

    Poor Writing, Poor Storytelling

    The grammar is shocking. The stories are not. No comparison whatsoever to Clive Barker et al.

    Boring

    Same story over and over, no originality. The author even repeated the same phrases several times. Very boring and very juvenile.
