Editorial Reviews

Review

The writing is good, the story details the horrific things people do to each other, and the ending is psychologically chilling. Quite honestly, this story repulses me. I cannot say I like it, nor can I say the author didn't do his job. - Lynn Perry Editor: Fear & Trembling magazine.

This psychological short starts off quickly and ends with a life altering change... Sarah lives in the shadow of her successful husband who makes it quite known throughout their life together, that she is nothing but a disappointment.... She will be chloroformed and kidnapped, with her abductors hoping for a big payout..This severe threat over her life will awaken a long dormant childhood trauma, that is just more eviler than this.........With her will to live she may just become the perfect wife, and mother of Roger's child that he has always wanted....as Bobo giggles..............

The mind works in mysterious ways in more than one...............Especially, with a broken psyche....

A friend recommended this one to me and originally I thought hmm 10 pages, is it worth it, will I even be able to review it with it being so short. Was it was worth it? Yes. Can I review it? Well lets see :)

I loved that it wasn't so clear cut and obvious what was going on or where the story was going, it made me feel like I was experiencing it the way I would if I was in the main characters situation. The confusion, the fear and panic, where am I? what can I hear? how did I get here? just to name a few, these are all things I'm sure we would all have going through our minds if this were reality.

This is one of those stories once read you'll probably find each reader will have a different opinion of how it ended, it's creepy, twisted and very atmospheric and it's very cleverly left open to the readers own interpretation and imagination to put the pieces together in a way that can totally creep you out.

I had to DL this after reading all the reviews. When a story has a lot of 5 stars and a lot of 1 stars, *something* about it is hitting the right chords.

So, I read it. And while I "get it" (I'm pretty sure I get it) I admit to confuzzlement about the ending. No, not the obvious part of the ending; that was clear enough. But the twist? Other readers must have a different definition of what a "twist" ending is than I do.

I found Schriver's style a combination of decent in getting the story across, and clumsy at the same time. The story itself...I don't have a problem with the main character's childhood (it happens) but the treatment of it just felt trivialized to me. It was all too much "In Your Face" and stereotyped even as Schiver shifted between past and present.

While I think it's a good effort, I can't really give it more than three stars.

An interesting short story.

The story is well written, perhaps a little confusing at the beginning but it improves significantly as the story develops.

Bobo is a very short horror story, I grabbed it when I saw it free on Amazon for Kindle as I like to read short stories in between novels to "cleanse the palette" or something like that. So I was all geared up to get really scared and freaked out over a short read.

Awakening to find herself the victim of a kidnapping, Sarah realizes just how alone she really is. The kidnapper believes her husband will pay handsomely for her safe return, but he doesn't know about their coming divorce. Help arrives from an unlikely source as Sarah comes face to face with old memories she's kept hidden even from herself.

Sarah is trapped and terrified, the book flits back to memories that she has from childhood whilst she is in this panic state, some of it is confusing however, I found the writing quite disjointed and did not get into a flow with it. I could see how the author was trying to use some clever technique but it did not quite come off as it should have.

Sarah gets help from a creepy and unexpected "friend" in her situation, I guess that in itself could have been really scary if written better but it just didn't have the creep factor for me.

For a free short read, it was okay but I am not raving about this one, I have read much better horror short stories recently. And it didn't scare me too much, not high on the terror factor in my opinion.

But I do hate clowns, especially a toy clown. So points for the cover being possibly the scariest bit about the book.
