"This is not your typical "Horror" book. The different stories seem to have not your typical point of view and a few of the stories I had to read twice because once I read the ending it made me think..."now wait a minute"... which is a good thing. I like a book where you can not predict what will come next and this book definitely did that. Each story was unique in a good way and it was hard for me to put down for the night. I would definitely recommend this book for a horror book which is just not "gore" but also dashed with a twisted point of view." - Sharonmz, Amazon.com
"This is one book that will definitely haunt you for a very long time. Death if final the author makes you value life and brings to light the importance of embracing it." - Fran Lewis, Amazon.com
"Instead of describing the book as falling into the science fiction or horror genre, I’d prefer to say that it more properly falls into the genre Margaret Atwood calls speculative fiction. As for the stories themselves, many are loosely connected via geography or theme and can be read independently or in the context of the whole collection. The stories invited reflection on the different points of view, “the other side,” of what the protagonists conveyed to us. I can’t wait to read more by this young writer!" - Josie Rodrigues, Goodreads.com
Group of short stories that were very good. Some better than others but overall worth reading. - Cathy, Goodreads.com
