Overview

The same people are impossibly spotted in two different places at once; a man considers murdering the husband of a woman he loves; while driving home very early in the morning, a driverless car appears out of the fog and follows two sisters home. Fear of the unknown, emotional intensity, and plain old creepiness will give you chills long after you have finished reading the seven stories in this collection.

One woman sees double. Another woman recognizes evil from a mug shot. And a pharmacist in love with a married woman wonders if he could “mistakenly” swap out her husband’s medication. Although this collection of short horror stories doesn’t necessarily send chills, they do carry a sense of irony. But they’re mostly plain and average—not that bad, but not that great either. The writing was pretty good. These tales were quick and okay.

True to its title, Chills actually gave me chills. All the stories quickened my heart rate and kept me at the edge of my seat. Each time each story neared its climax, I used to grab whatever is near me to be prepared for the goosebumps that would cover my body and the chills that would run down my spine. And I have to admit it that none of the stories disappointed me in this, because all the stories had shivers running down my back. All the stories successfully scared me and had my heart on the verge of jumping out of its ribcage. The excerpt above is the part of my favourite story from this collection. After reading this story, I am completely assured that these pair of eyes are definitely going to haunt me in my dreams. All the stories of this collection are unique, and each one is different from the rest. These stories are not only different in the sense of storyline but also in the sense of genre, as some of the stories were supernatural while some were related to crime or criminals and some were mixture of both. The main characters of each story are really well built and I could relate to them instantly even though some characters were way older than me. If you're a fan of scary suspense stories and if you believe that you can keep your heart in your ribcage safely while reading this book then this short story collection is definitely for you.

I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review. Chills is a great collection of short stories written by Sahar Sabati. As soon as I finished the second page, I knew I had discovered another talented author. The stories are simple but thought provoking. There is not one story I enjoyed more. I loved them all! And so will you, just give Chills a try.

I received a review copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.  This is actually a really short book, something you can read in just one sitting. Although it was really short, I actually enjoyed the seven short stories in this book. They were intriguing and so full of suspense with a tinge of horror. It's something that could grip you in a way that, although some of them would bring you the chills (hence the name of the book), you still crave for some more! What an interesting read!  My problem, though, is that the stories lacked horror. I'm the type of person who stayed up late so I read this book around 12 AM in the morning (because that's how I roll haha), and I simply did not feel it. I didn't feel scared or anything. Maybe it lacked the description it was supposed to have..? Also, I know that these stories are supposed to be short - and I meant for this to be a compliment - but the stories were really interesting that I wish it could have been longer! I wanted to know more about the characters, about the story - simply everything! Since it was meant to be short stories, then oh well. It would've been nice if it was actually novel. That is something I would enjoy too! Overall, this book was interesting and really fun! I loved some of the stories because they had a really beautiful meaning inside them.
