Very short story about a student who hasn't really made any other friends other than a female roommate who pressures them to attend a Halloween event because they can't just sit in their dorm room all day. The story is okay, but becomes pretty stupid about half way in.
Not really what I expected from looking at the extremely creepy cover! In fact, the cover is the scariest thing about this story.
The idea of a Virtual Reality mask that gives you the perfect Halloween mask is intriguing. However, I really didn't find the story to be very scary. By looking at that cover, I was expecting to be looking behind me as I read and having nightmares because of it. But, instead, I found it be just mildly creepy.
The narrator did a pretty good job, but more emotion would have made it scarier. I was given an audiobook version of this story by the author/publisher and chose to review it.
BOO! A Halloween Story (God Complex Universe) was a good quick read by George Saoulidis. A young man moves to the big city and tries to blend in with everyone around him. During a Halloween party, the masks that everyone wear won't seem to come off.
