Inspirational... but not in a good way

As a modestly talented writer, I draw inspiration from two kinds of storytelling: the kind that's so good it shows me exactly what to emulate, and the kind that's so bad it makes me think, "If that kind of tripe can get published, then I have no excuse to fail." With its wink-and-nudge plots whose reveals are only shocking because they are actually as predictable as they appear, this collection falls soundly into the latter camp.

From one story to the next, I kept hoping that each obvious piece of foreshadowing was misleading me and setting up an engaging reversal, only to be freshly disappointed by another freshman-level denouement. Each time the author resorted to masking the banality of his work with gruesome imagery, I found myself reflecting on how much better the reversal I'd imagined and written off as being too predictable was than the actual conclusion.

So yeah, I found this collection inspiring, but not in a way that's particularly flattering to the author.

Creepy Stories!

Overall - 4.5 stars rounded up to 5
Story - 4.5 stars
Narration - 5 stars

Most of the stories herein are pretty good. I'd say they're creepy but not terrifying. There's something for everyone. My favorite story was "Book of Revelation" and it involves a Stephen King novel.

The narrator was <b>very</b> good. His character voices weren't overdone and they fit well into the stories.
