To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I thought I already gave a review on 54 Sleepless Nights, but guess not. I read this a while ago and I enjoyed the book overall. Some stories better than others - depends on how brave you are, I suppose! To be honest, anything that comes in my mail with Tobias in the subject line gets my attention. I’ve never been let down with a half-baked story or insanely crazy story and you can sometimes get that in other anthologies. Tip: If you see this author’s name in the subject line of your whatever, open it. This guy has stories that will definitely keep you interested!
in here. Because over three quarters of them are good I'd recommend this book to those that are looking for fresh new ideas and stories. A couple were intense, few are preachy, there were two that went over my head, I guess bc I didn't get them. The title is accurate,I hope that he gets new fans and more exposure bc he's a very talented writer
Tobias Wade is a master of the short story collection! Every single tale in this book is creepy, some more than others, but they're all good. I only gave four stars, instead of five, because of those pesky typos. If you need an editor, I am willing to help!!!☺
Tobias Wade has a rare talent for twisting the mundanity of everyday life into a sublime horrifying experience. I fell in love with the first book of the series and this addition is not a disappointment in any way. I wanted to stretch the stories out, 1 or 2 a night for a month or so—I ended up finishing 3 days after starting. The endings of the short stories are rarely what you are expecting usually delivering a thought-provoking style of horror.
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 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.
