    Great creepy short stories

    Great suspenseful/creepy short stories. I would like to read more from this author. I was surprised to see that the author is a woman, only because I usually get this genre from King, Koontz, etc. Well done, author.

    Do Not Download!!! Total Waste of Time

    There are not many books that I read that I don't get some kind of message out of it; however, there's no message to grasp at all in this book. I couldn't get through the first couple of pages because it makes no sense whatsoever!

    Word wise

    Many of these stories are revenge oriented, with dark characters and bold plots. I really enjoy the various settings and delimas the main characters deal with.
    I like this female author writing male 1st person main chatacters as if she is in their heads. Characters are creepy, devilish, and morbid, depending on the story. All the characters are fun to read.
    Usually I find myself reading classics and murder mysteries, but I'm glad I downloaded this anthology. It has opened a different type of literature for me toconsider. I will be looking for more from this author.

    more from this reviewer

    I should have guessed by the cover...

    but i didnt and was shocked by the first story that I read. Then I got the idea of the book and ironic doesnt begin to describe this book. While depressing, I absolutely loved it!

    short stories

    Its a collection of articles or short stories that is very good but weird collection. One was about how they drug space command and faked moon landing. another person standing in line at a movie was shot. A lady waiting for 8 hours to get 88 dollars in foodstamps lost her temper at worker. A quite lady that no one really new at work and the building got bombed. they get the point across. easy to read and follow.
