Chocolate-Covered Eyes: A Sampler of Horror by Lori R. Lopez has a little something for everyone. I am always eager to read something by somebody I have never read before. It is how you find that special gem. This book is one of those gems.

Having said that, I enjoyed MOST of the stories found in this tome. Yet, to be fair, I have never read a collection or anthology and loved EVERY story. First and foremost, as an indie title, I will applaud how clean this book reads. Many indies tend to be slop

Lori's style was initially a bit of a shock to me... its a bit like going out for fish 'n' chips and ending with the a silver service, fine dining novelle cuisine meal!
If you are looking for some light reading, run away now... Lori is intense, emotion evoking, gigglesome in parts, never dull and exhausting in her descriptions.
To start with, I tried to "just" read Lori's wondrous outpourings, but oh no, you need to digest them, allow them to flow over you and get lost in her unique worlds....

First, and foremost, thank you Ms. Lopez for sending me a copy of your book to read. :) and thank you Books 4 Tomorrow for the recomendation!

Ok, so I can't say too much since these are all short stories (7 of them to be exact) but I can give you a few low-downs :) Ms. Lori has a very unique style of writing, and she can captivate you with some of these. Some stories have a poem like concept, while others are just stories written. However, I will say this, if you like a little horror (maybe a lo

Chocolate-Covered Eyes is an anthology that has something for everyone. I won't go into detail about each individual story as the summary given by the author is enough information to allow you an opportunity to gauge your interest in the content. I will, however, make it known that while I did not love each and every tale the author had to share, I did, in fact, enjoy her writing style. This is not an anthology for the weak minded. And it is absolutely not a simple bathroom reader.

(Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography []. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted illegally.)

This sampler of short horror pieces (both stories and gothic poems) by Lori R. Lopez just barely qualified in length to get reviewed here, with a reading experience to match -- it is certainly competently done, but with very traditional pieces that leave not much of an impression, the whole thing over and
Kim (Wistfulskimmies Book Reviews)
This is a collection of six of Lori's best stories preceded by a poem called 'Chocolate Covered Eyes'. All the stories have a horror theme and are slightly macabre.

This is the first taste I have had of Lori's work and I think I shall be coming back for more. She has an irreverent, humorous style that certainly appeals. The stories were deliciously dark, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. If I have one criticism, it would be the constant use of long and 'fancy' words - I found myself reaching my dict

This book is hard to explain for me, as the writing is very different from what I am used to.
A couple of the stories I actually got a little lost as to what the story was about. Upon saying that though if your a fan of very discreptive text and poetry text then this book is your perfect match.

If you look at it from a poetry/discreptive writing point of view then I would say it's extremely well written and Lori is a very talented writer in this sense.

But my 3 stars isn't because it is a bad book.

“A good [short story] would take me out of myself and then stuff me back in, outsized, now, and uneasy with the fit.” ― David Sedaris

this is an excellent literary collection of stories that i savored and loved. i was amazed by the author's writing style. using a wide range of vocabulary, she still managed to make everything readable and accessible. out of the six eerie tales and one poem, my choice picks from this sampler are Heartbeat , Unleashed: Tail One , Bedeviled and Macabre .

I just finished this book last night and all I can say is AMAZING!!!! There is something in this book for everyone. Each story is well written and the words just flow from the page. If you are thinking about getting this book you will not be disappointed. There is a story in here for everyone, weather you are new to horror or a die hard horror fan I recommend this book.

Very interesting stories of the intelligent kind. Not light reading by any means. Lori Lopez strings words together that create an alliteration of word salad that blend together and create a Gestalt of visuals that will keep you thinking long into the night.

Well done.

I really enjoyed this book of great stories.
Each one is different, horror and humour.
Just my cup of tea.
