After reading the first seven short stories in this compilation, I stopped. They just weren't what I was expecting. I like horror stories, and I enjoy the short story format, but these just weren't that scary or weird or horrific. They were just OK. I feel bad that I didn't finish the rest of the stories, because there could be a gem in there, but I figured if the first third of the stories weren't that good, what are the chances the rest of them will be great? So I stopped.
Looking for a chill in the summer heat? Pick up this anthology of vacations gone horribly wrong. Think you're safe at home? You are... until the neighbors get back with the most interesting slides. Interested in seeing the Real Mexico or Egypt? Are you really sure? This was a book I picked up on a whim and it gave me the whim-whammies back. I found only one in here I'd read before. A very nice collection!
