Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
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 analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Halfway through the anthology, but need to review before I die laughing from great stories and situations.
A good blend of authors took a common trope and let their imaginations run wild. The results are very good to hilarious. From mixed cowboy romance and supernatural thriller to magical suspense, and then to absolutely tounge-over-fang comedy, it's a set of tales to lighten the heart as the dark of the year rolls around.
Unfortunately for the dark, those cries are of joy to be able to use the advanced optics and exotic weapon loads that certain protagonists have kept ready for just this emergency. And to be able to fill that space or jar on the mantle just waiting for an exotic trophy.
Well, pull up a chair, get a mug of hot cider and listen to the cold wind blow outside. Then open up this book and be prepared to be laughing one minute and get the bejeezuz scared out of you the next. This is the kind of book where you're in the middle of a story and you hear a bump outside and you kind of stop and wonder ... "What the heck was that?!" Because it might just be one of the things in the story coming for YOU. Then you open up again and the next minute you're laughing at the antics of one of our trailer park heroes.
This is a fine collection of stories by great writers, perfect for the season.
Overall, I enjoyed this anthology, being of Appalachian stock myself. I recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor and an appreciation for the weird and scary.
As with many independently published books, there were a few grammatical errors, but not enough to be distracting. However, I had to deduct one star for a combination of two reasons.
First was a pair of errors that any editor or beta reader with a drop of redneck blood in their veins would've caught. It's Busch beer, not Bush, and when someone is shooting a shotgun, the shells don't go downrange towards the target.
Second was a SJW author who had to include a "woman of color" in an interracial relationship (with a homosexual son, but said homosexuality was important to the story so no foul there) who doesn't know the difference between a clip and a magazine. Petty gripes perhaps, but hey it's my review and four stars is a solid rating.
This is a collection of great silly monster stories set in trailer parks. Just as advertised it's cheap low B movie fun in each story. Not every story was Pulitzer material but they all had charm and did I mention fun?
Solid anthology! If you look at the cover and think, "this looks fun," you're right. It's a balance of humor, horror, gore, over-the-top jokes and references as well as sly innuendo. Definitely worth it!
An excellent variety of well-written short stories by a group of different authors, all entertaining and well worth reading. Although I never thought I would use the phrase "appropriate and amusing, yet tasteful hentai" in a review. I hope they do another volume soon. Highly recommended!
This collection of stories was a page turner, keeping me engrossed and entertained through each story. Werewolves, Aliens, killer robots, vampires, zombies, this collection has it all. It was nice to read something about rednecks and trailer denizens that actually showed a "real" side of them, rather than a biased caricature. I highly recommend.
Been there, lived in a trailer park, know some of these personalities. That said, I laughed until my face hurt. If you loved B movies with cheesy plots, lots of gore and overall strange doings, you'll love this book. Get it, laugh heartily, and share it.
