Epic, that word gets thrown around a lot, probably at times, too much. But in this case, it is most accurate. Crouch and Konrath are right now the tip of the spear in this eworld we live in. This download has more gadgets on it then on anything I have seen. Plus the disclaimer at the beginning, I love it. Fortunately with aid of heavy medication and an understanding wife I can sleep at night, the recurring plotline just keeps running through my mind, over and over and over: the carnage, the hate
could not stopping read this... was totally engrossed...
it really romps through some horror that made me sit back and swallow hard in some places...
not much is left to the imagination with these guys at the helm...
loved all the links to the times/books chronology etc...
of course now I have to read all the bits in between.
cracking book!

Absolutely blew me away!
I am a fan of Jack Kilborn (J.A. Konrath) but it was my first pleasant introduction to Blake Crouch.
For those who know me, I am a massive horror fan. The grittier, sicker and gorier; the better!
I like books that can shock me and make me screw my face up in disgust or horror and this book did exactly that.
I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't read this but it was an epic read. One of the best I've read in a long time.

This is DEFINITELY NOT for the easily offended

OVERVIEW/ANALYSIS: Serial Killers Uncut is a collaboration between authors Blake Crouch & Jack Kilborn, which originally started as an experiment labeled Serial. The novella was given out for free HERE and turned out to be something of a success story as it was downloaded more than half a million times. Blake Crouch & Jack Kilborn then decided to flesh out the characters in Serial, which resulted in Serial Uncut, a book that was embraced by fans a
I'm not really sure how to rate this book. I feel I am unqualified due to not finishing a quarter of it, but I also feel obligated to let others know what I would have liked to have heard prior to purchasing.

I am not a prude, I do not mind gore or depravity(in the right context), and I'm usually up for anything. So perhaps this review has more to say about myself than the book. With so many books out there that I need to make time to read, as a general rule, if I find me forcing myself to conti

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time.
Crouch and Konrath are fabulous together.
Each of their serial killers is unique and they are the bad guys you love yet love to hate.
I recommend this book and the others in this particular series.

Just finished this EPIC ride !!! Great , great hell of a story , never gets boring , never stops being entertaining . It is quite lengthy also , it is forth every penny !
Ken Lindsey
I'm glad I bought this book. It is exactly what I was hoping for, exciting, gory, dark, funny at times... Plus, this format seems like something very special to me, something we will probably see more of. Not only is this book a ride that is well worth the $3.99, it is also a great way to learn about two different authors (three if you count Konrath's pen name, Kilborn) and the rich worlds and characters they've created. Great read.
A quick fun read. I love both authors.
This book is described as a "double novel" and includes two previously published books (Serial Uncut and Killers Uncut), along with a bunch of novellas and short stories by the same authors as a compilation. This book basically includes every Konrath and Crouch character written so far and strings their stories together chronologically.

There are over twenty characters throughout the book who keep running into each other in various stories. Sometimes that got a little confusing, but it helps if y

Wow. This book really pushed the envelope for violence and depravity as far as what I've read to date. It rather caught me by surprise. Once I got over that initial shock, though, I really got into the stories. I'm working my way through the intertwined Konrath/Kilborn/Crouch universe, and this was a quick intro to several of their major characters. Most of these were a lot of fun, and I liked getting to read about the background of some of these individuals to see the paths that led them to the ...more
I have enjoyed Blake Crouch's other books, so for some unknown reason, I though MAYBE I would like these books too...I was wrong. I couldn't finish the book easily. I'm not one to give up on a book, but I seriously almost walked away from this one a couple of times. It pushed the limits too many times. It's been MONTHS since I've read this book, but I still can't get some of the images out of my head. Every time I see a peach pit, I feel like I'm going to throw up....if you've read this you know ...more

I'm pissed off. Why? Because I love Blake Crouch's work so much that I keep sinking money into more and more books. And now that I've read Serial Killers Uncut and have gotten a taste of the other authors involved, I now have to read their works. It's getting expensive, but I guess I can't complain too much for the entertainment. ;)
This is essentially a collection of stories interspersed with ads for other books to read. As long as you're ok with that, it's not a bad read. And it did make me want to read some of the other books.
This book is only a five star if you have read Konrath and crouch's other books. You could read it not knowing the characters in advance but it wouldn't be as much fun.
Glenn Conley
Very interesting book. It is a collection of short stories about serial killers interacting with other serial killers. Sometimes they kill each other. Sometimes they kill others together and become the best of friends.

If you are looking for an interesting plot, or a compelling good guy that's going to save the day, this is not the book for you. There are no good guys. This book is all about serial killers killing and torturing their prey. There's very little exposition about why they kill.

And fo
One word, disturbing!
I normally don't review books, but I thought others should know what they're getting into. My complaint is not about the gore or gruesome antics of the characters in the book, although they did seem to push the limits in some story lines. I purchased this book thinking it was an UNCUT version of a series of books from a few authors of the same genre; compiled to make a mega-read with the addition of content to create character crossover. Although I felt character development was good enough to f ...more

Serial Killers Uncut is the final product of a collaboration between two horror authors: Blake Crouch and J. A. Konrath. The story features 21 of their different characters from all of their series and universes combined. This isn't to say that new readers can't come into this book blind. They CAN, and there is even an index where one can look up a character, what story they were introduced in, and their behaviors/personalities. Throughout the novel, whenever there is time that goes by, the auth ...more

I loved the bits with the killers from the initial novella project and a few of the longer interactions, but overall the tales were disjointed and less than engaging. Had I read all the other various books I'm sure I would have liked this more... especially if I took the time to read them in order while periodically returning to Serial Killers Uncut, when appropriate.
I just don't have the patience (or all the other books).
Ashley James
I read that this can be read as a stand alone book and having not read any of the other books associated with this I was excited to read and whilst I really enjoyed some of the stories I feel that a lot of the book would of been better if I had read the other books I found myself forgetting who was who and what part they played it seemed like massive amounts of the book was excerpts trying to convince me to buy the other books I wish I had read all the others before this as I think I would of lo ...more

On one hand, I have never come across such clean & lean narrative, that deals with such sickening stuff. On the other hand, my introduction to Lt Jack Daniels, courtesy her confrontation with two of the most vicious serial recreational killers, left me rather dissatisfied. No more of such nasty stuff, but more of Jack Daniels, that's what I would prescribe to myself.
Be prepared for a Serial Killer Spree

Interesting, tying all the characters together in one book...making you want to read more. I enjoyed reading about characters I already know and also finding new ones I want to find out more about. Great concept!!
Tony Moore
This is a very entertaining book and if you like stories about serial killers, hitchhikers and a story that will stick with you for awhile then get this book.

I have to stop writing this review only because I'm positive that I will give something away and I don't want to do that.

Michael Martin
Meh. I was expecting a lot of back stories and tight stories. Instead, I got loose piecemeal interspersed with sometimes blatant sales pushes for the authors' other books and the occasional cut and past from other novels. Not much fun to read after the complete Jack Daniels series and "Stirred."
"The Hitcher" meets "psycho", with a little "saw" added for fun.... Sick twisted serial killers collide in this hair raising tale. I enjoyed it, immensely, and look at people in the streets and stores differently now
I "enjoyed" this collection (if that's the right word). Mucho serial killers in one book, interacting and playing off of each other, makes for a very interesting read. I appreciated getting backstories on some of these authors' killers. I had never read any of the Jack Daniels books before but will be remedying that very soon. Lucy is one sick little puppy (not that the others aren't). I was glad to find out that a sequel has been written about Lucy and Donaldson KILLERS - A Psycho Thriller - th ...more
First discovering Blake Crouch by his DRACULAS book, I enjoyed the short stories in this collection immensely.

Nearly all protagonists are simply amoralic, caring only about fulfilling that one desire that pushes them to inflict pain on their fellow man, without any need to explain for pages upon pages *why* they became that way or how their difficult childhood turned them into predators. No excuse needed, they just live their urges to the fullest. This is something that makes the stories much mo

I haven't finished this book yet, so this is only a partial review.
I hope it gets better, don't know if it will through.
Paula Skiles
I love mysteries, thrillers, and serial killer books, but this one was so gory and graphic I couldn't finish it. It's one of the first books that I haven't finished. No matter how bad a book is I always try to give the book the benefit of the doubt and finish it even if it feel physically painful. This one even as a nurse in which I see blood and guts was too much for me. If you have a strong stomach and are fearless give this one a try, but if you think I read this stuff all the time no big dea ...more
