This is one of those "you can't put down books"... The book was released last Friday and by Tuesday evening, I had read the book twice. Stuart James writes books with amazing twists and turns that you never see coming even when you read it and think you know where the book is going, it never ends where you think it should. These are great stories where he has crafted in some amazing endings which are unexpected....
From a quite family to a closed shop, these stories are exciting and scary... you feel for the characters and empathise with their plight...
A joy to read and I am looking forward to his next novel...
There are six short stories, around 40-50 pages each and all with horror or horrific overtones and they are great with neat twists that I tried (and failed) to guess. The Intruder, Room 9 and Seance were my favourites but the other trio weren't far behind and there's not a poor story among them.
Definitely recommended if you're into short, quick reads and if you're not, these may change your mind!
I love the abrupt end to the first chapter, you have an idea of what happened but can only use your imagination to know for sure.
I think Seance and Hitchikers were my favourites, although they were all great books. I really like short stories because it's easy to read a full story and finish it in one sitting.
