You have to read/listen to Shapeshifters Anonymous. It was campy and silly and marvelous! I laughed out loud and I loved the ending. I'm going to go online and research the long lost 'Book of Bob'.
Jack Kilborn is to horror what Seth MacFarlane is to comedy. His writing is entertaining and he pushes the boundaries to the point of discomfort. Sometimes he crosses the line of decency. Sometimes I am disturbed by the subject matter. But I can't put it down. I HAVE to know how the story ends. He's just that good.
Regardless of your take on Judeo-Christian beliefs, this is a great roller coaster ride. I would have classified it as horror, but technothriller is also pretty accurate. Gets a little bit intense in some places - not for the squeamish. Thanks, Jack. Well done.
It's a man vs. monster story, rather than a man vs. crazy person(s) story.
I liked the way he portrayed Bub.
If the devil exists, does that prove the existence of God?
Yes, but I will be more discerning about the subject matter. I want to consider reading everything Jack Kilborn writes because I know he can and has done better than this story.
The most interesting thing about the story is the lengths the author will go to in trying to horrify me. There was an abundance of horror, much of it carried a step or two beyond what I would have expected.
Unfortunately the least interesting thing about the book is dwelling on the idea of how horrible humans can be to one another - not my idea of a worthy topic for a novel.
Probably not, for the same reason I do not go see other insane killer movies.
You can do better than this, Jack. I've read a lot of your stories. I know you're really talented. And I want more from you than 'insane killers go berserk'.
Perhaps, if I had nothing else to try, but probably not.
These stories seemed to go nowhere. They lack resolution and closure. I couldn't tell when the story was over.
Narration was good. I have no complaints with that.
disappointment. The story ideas presented had real potential, but didn't reach it.
