This is a hard book to put down and a harder one to get out of your thoughts. 50+ short (5-10 min) reads that distort the ordinary into nightmares. Innocuous phrases such as "I love you, I'll do anything for you" "It looks so life-like" "It's as if the house grew here" take on on a sinister bent in these all too plausible stories that creep into your subconscious and won't let go. Truly a wide variety of tales including a few disquieting yet wholesome endings. While there are stories that dip into the paranormal and macabre, most simply lead down disquieting uncomfortable paths - making you second guess all the slightly odd, and some of the normal things around you. Twists on twists to keep you guessing and just enough left unsaid that you will lie awake at night for hours thinking about what it means if that is true. This is an honest and voluntary review of an ARC.
This is a great mix for anyone who likes to read horror anthologies. There is a wide variety of topics covered. I have always enjoyed Tobias Wade's anthology books. They keep you reading too late at night, and there are always some stories that stick out more than others that you will remember a long time.
I laughed. I cried. I got angry. I laughed and cried again. Some of these story’s were so well written that I would love to read a full length novel. Although some were markedly better than others, not one was a disappointment. Wonderful read for everyone!
I really enjoyed this book. I love short stories, so I can read a couple when I have time, but I read this book straight through. I really love this series, although a couple of the stories in this one I skipped through as they weren't to my taste.
This is a brilliant read. Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start. Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believable. Great drama and romance with wonderful world building. Can't wait to read what the author brings out next. Recommend reading.
I read a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.
