Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking?
#1: Don’t go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy.
#2: Don’t pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be certifiably crazy.
So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Crazy #2? Newly expanded, Serial Uncut is more horrific than ever, so proceed at your own risk. If you suffer from anxiety attacks, nervous disorders, insomnia, nightmares or night terrors, heart palpitations, stomach problems, or are of an overly sensitive nature, you should listen to something else. You have been warned....

If you enjoy gory, sadistic, bloody murder stories that are actually clever and written above the high school level, you've hit the jackpot. This is the best splatterporn I've found on Audible, add it to your list immediately if you always wish your serial killer books were more graphic. 100% kudos to the authors, they are gore-gentlemen and gore-scholars.
My husband kept saying "I can't believe we are listening to this!' We cringed, shuddered and kept wondering how people can think this stuff up to write, YUCK!!! But, we were cracking up at the end.
I haven't read Crouch or Kilborn, love and know how sick and funny Konrath. If you don't mind listening about creeps, eating faces or pealing eyelids off of victims then help your self to this book.
Kneel Before Zod!!
yes, it's that good.
"Your last warning about the dangers of Hitchhiking"
This book is very entertaining....
Murder porn. Although multiple writers contributed, and despite the narrator who does a fairly good job of creating different voices, all the characters were essentially the same. Different stories bring the various characters together, but the threads lack intrigue or dread. Very repetitive and ultimately boring. Ending was weak, too.
My taste vary. I love a good, blood stained horror, but also a well written kids story. Lots of Sci-Fi, but also Hist. Fiction. No boring!!!
YOU BROUGHT YOUR TOOLBOX, RIGHT?
This is Throw up Scary. Another reviewer hits it on the head with Splatterporn. Each chapter is like s separate story and they kind of come together in the end. The first two chapters provide unique twists. The first six chapters were excellent. Then the story ran out of places to go and basically repeated itself. The gore becames less of the story and more gore for gore's sake.
I thought the beginning of this was clever and witty and a little funny. Toward the end the gratuitous violence and gore just got old. It became like two guys trying to gross each other out with more and more sick stuff. I like sick stuff if part of the story, but sick for sick's sake is boring. I did how ever like the last chapter and the epilogue. Skip to the last chapter if you get bored. Fans of Matt Shaw and Jack Ketchum will enjoy this.
This guy does the majority of the narration. He has been around for a while and he is very good. He does J.A. Konrath's stuff perfect. Scary, gory with a hint of humor.
The authors needed to explore the past motivations of the various killers.
Certainly. Their style is fine. The direction of the short story is not.
They did not. It was well read.
Yes. The interactions between the serial killers had great potential and has been explored by the likes of James Patterson. The potential was not realized.
Yes. Reading it doesn't do it justification as hearing it...especially if the right person is reading it.
Donaldson - a complete whack job. Would love a book focusing on his character. I like Lucy too. She's a good 'supporting' actor.
They make the characters believable. Patrick makes his character seem like they're real people.
Yes and I did while at work.
This book was funny but to be a serial killer I guess you have to be crazy. Love the interaction between Donaldson and Taylor and Donaldson and Lucy. To me those were the best parts.
The performance is awesome. I really enjoyed the pace!!! I listened to this one straight through!! Finally! Something that made me squeamish!!!
I enjoyed every character!!
"Didn't see that Comin"
I guess I am sadistic because I was hoping for more gruesome graphic detailing but all in all it wasn't that bad. It fell a little short for me but it was not a complete waste of time or money.
Very well written, although not for the faint hearted. As it is only short, it is a good introduction to the authors' other works.
"Crouch, Kilborn and Konrath - a unity of sickness."
This is my third installment from the pen of Killborn and just like 'Trapped' and 'Endurance', this one did not disappoint. I must admit with this particular book, the vivid and graphic nature of the story did start to disturb me at certain times. But what can you expect from a book where the nature of the story recounts clear monologues in the context of serial killing. I am about to start Kilborn's fourth book, 'Afraid', but perhaps I should take a couple of days of first, just to recover....brilliant author(s)...brilliant story.....thank you audible.
