Read in August, 2014

I didn't find the stories in this collection scary or even unsettling, which isn't all that bad because I find it hard to even be genuinely unsettled by a book. But the writing wasn't good enough to have me enjoying the ride despite the lack of scares, so I didn't get too much out of this. There's not much set up or attention paid to imagery, their little quick horror fixes.

I grew tired of the Golden Eyes story, which has a doctor being forced to treat these tree-like forest demons. The story is broken into three or four parts and scattered about the book, though at times seemed to be out of order.

Big Bertha reminded me of something Tales of the Crypt might have done, but not as entertaining. Between the Happiest Man on Earth and One Last Breath I was kind of wondering if the author was a little misogynistic or if he just wanted to write stories with a little misogyny thrown in.
