As is true of all David Boyle’s stories, he achieves depth of character and insight into reality without sacrificing suspense or believability, rewarding the reader with imaginative plot twists and unexpected climaxes. The situations in this collection could happen to anybody. Just ask yourself this: Are you ready to face your fears?
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
What was most disappointing about David Boyle’s story?
None of them were scary.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
It was like having Carl Sagen, whom I loved but spoke very, very slowly and nasally, on horse tranquilizers reading you the dictionary.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
I'm beginning to think the folks who hire these narrators don't bother to listen to them before they record them.
