I found the stories in this collection to be disappointingly repetitive and somewhat cliche. Perhaps it would have been better if I hadn't read the stories back to back because then I may not have noticed the use of the same words and phrases in each story, such as "the sex between his/her legs," "gorge/vomit rising," "styrofoam coffee cups," "crystalline", and an unnerving penchant for sexualizing young teenage girls. There also seemed to be an dearth of unnecessary, meaningless details that added nothing to the story except to confuse the reader as to why it was even mentioned. One example was a description of a mole that the protagonist notices on the young girl's neck that had no bearing on the story at all, but was written in such a way that you would have thought it would be important in some way. Overall I just found the stories to be mostly unoriginal "horror" and poorly written. Luckily, the price ($.99) was right and it helped me waste an afternoon, but I wouldn't recommend it and it didn't make me eager to purchase any of author's other work.
