Overview

In Ricky Olson’s gritty debut collection you’ll dive into stories that draw grim landscapes where men and women are caught in equally disturbing scenarios. In one, a model addicted to the internet gets invited to an elite party by a stranger. In another, a high school student obsessed with death tries to quench an ever-growing thirst. In others, embarrassing sex is explored, survival of the fittest is exercised, and death is redeemed. Throughout these twelve short stories one thing is common: Olson isn’t afraid to leave any rock unturned while exploring the dark side of the human condition.

Typically, I am not the biggest fan of short story collections but this was completely captivating. His writing style reminded me of a mix between Chuck Palahniuk and Stephen King, and absoultely grotesque in the best way possible. I loved his diction because he was the perfect amount descriptive for short stories and overall the way he wrote just kept me hanging on word after word. These stories are so dark and I loved every moment of them. Such a great read. I would love to read another story of his one day!

The fictional stories written are honestly a slap in the face that will seriously leave you questioning how often the things he writes about actually happen. It's a great book and I loved it.
