My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I liked reading this short story compilation for two reasons: the story and the storytelling.
The stories themselves were interesting, with a twist of horror; believable horror. They all had a tiny bit of real life tragedy that anyone could come into contact with in our daily lives. That’s what made them good to me. It had a touch of Stephen King.
But the storytelling, Oh! the way Sarah Hall drove you into the emotions the characters were feeling, the way she told the story was brilliant. I definitely need to re-read this book and take some pointers from her on storytelling.
