They are us.

Truly enjoyed all the stories in this collection. I love the tension and unease that was built and there was enough scare without resorting to gratuitous gore or shock.

There is still meat on those bones
This anthology makes me want to go back and reduce all the other anthologies I have listened to by 1 star. I just don’t feel like rating this book 5 stars is fair because it will be grouped with all the other 5 star reviews I have given. I absolutely will take this into consideration for all future reviews. So for now please note that while I am rating this book 5 stars across the board I would much rather give it higher.
I enjoyed the writing in this book immensely. The maturity of the writing, the humor, and the psychology of each story were top notch. The descriptions that the author provides perfectly paints everything such that I would never need to see a movie of these. I already watched it exactly as the author intended in my head.
I’m not going to go on and on about how great I think these stories are because you will get a little bit of that when you first start the book and I am sure I won’t be able to as eloquently review the stories as Chris Hall did. I will say that I felt the stories are presented in the same order I would rank them. I was still super excited about the book by the time I finished it although I would say that as with any anthology not every story is a 10, but even the worst was better than a lot of others I have read lately.
The narrator was also fantastic. He has a deep dark tone, had to adjust the speakers in my car while driving, but that richness is perfectly paired for these style stories. Looking forward to more work by Duncan with the same narrator.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
