A deliciously twisted back-story in the Shudderville series, 5 stars
on October 19, 2012
I started to read this story and just couldn't stop until I reached the end. It holds you in a thrall of horror and delight at the twists and turns the plot takes. You suspect from about the middle of the story that something really unpleasant might be going to happen, but it's still a shock when it does.
This is a back-story to central characters in the Shudderville series, but I can't name them because it really would be a spoiler, suffice to say that if you are a fan of the books then this will not disappoint.
The plot takes some twists from creepy into horror and back to Twilight Zone weirdness. If you enjoy a bizarre tale then the Shudderville stories are for you. They are exceptionally well written, with great atmosphere set by the author's excellent ability to write descriptive passages, which are easy to see in the reader's mind.
This book, Shudderville 5 is an excellent continuation in a set of books that bring to mind the old creepy armchair theatre stories; highly recommended.
