Can it be love?
What did you like best about Monstrous Affections? What did you like least?
There is a decent varity to the stories, and there was at least one that I really enjoyed.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Some are a little too predictable, or slow moving and there's a lot of similarity between the characters, even between stories. It's like the author only knows how to write a few kinds of characters, and every female character (except one) is a total dip.
Did Robert Keiper do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Not really- all of the female voices are the same, exactly the same, like Minnie Pearl from Hew Haw, and the all the male voices either over annunciate or have a hillbilly draw. He sounds like the guy who sings “Gramma Got Run Over by a Reindeer”. The characters may actually have come off as more interesting if the voice applied hadn't dumbed them down so much. He was at least, energetic.
Do you think Monstrous Affections needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Maybe, if he can figure out how to write another type of character.
Any additional comments?
It was Ok, but nothing that was really creepy or scary, or even interesting, like a lot of watered down episodes of the Twilight Zone.
