    "I absolutely loved this book!!!"

    I really liked the Gore and violent horror of the Jack Ketchum books that I've read before. Ive grown to expect lots of blood and cannibals, mad dogs and killer crazed women, etc. This is not one of those books.

    This is a book full of beautifully written stories with vivid imagery and a genius understanding of human and in some cases domestic cat understanding. I loved the side notes to each story and I felt more engaged with Jack Ketchum then ever before.

    I would put this collection of short stories next to Stephen King and Flannery O'Connor.

    Read masterfully by David Gilmore.
