Stories about brutal subjects. Thoroughly unpleasant. Do not really understand why Snow White, Blood Red recommended this in it's introduction-- I get that the title story is LOOSELY based on the fairy tale of the same name, but I wasn't really prepared to be reading about kids being sexually molested.

Incredibly horrifying stories and disturbing characters are a testament to Peter Straub's ability. Don't read these after dark.

Straub always has interesting ideas and disturbing results. I often feel like I'm only understanding the topmost layer of pathology. These stories collected together is a little too much Bleak Shit all at once. I need to go find a puppy and some ice cream.
