Yes, I just used an over-used internet (lol cat) meme to (in my opinion) adequately describe my feelings about this book in the spirit of this book.
Four 5-star and two 4-star reviews? Seriously? Who is reading this book? I thought I was getting a crazy-dark fiction book, something a step beyond the horror genre. I get a depressed, Jewish, Big Bad Wolf, 20-somethings who can't grow up, a werewolf vs. The Peppercorn Rent (with the last name of Lupine - really?), and... I can't even go on - I started skimming. I didn't finish. I read a lot (according to my goodreads profile, 266 books in the last three years), and I really try not to judge a book by it's cover. I really should have my an exception in this case. I've read that short stories are the most difficult of writing styles, as authors have to fit into thirty pages what some put into one-thousand. The reader needs to at least be able to form some kind of assumption, draw some conclusion - they need to be able to figure out what's happening - based on what they're reading: these stories just don't do that. Okay, the Peppercorn story does... but even so - it just wasn't good. I guess it boils down to I didn't care - what happened, was was going to happen... there was nothing I liked about any of it and it wasn't exciting or original.
The formatting was REALLY bad, as well. I don't know if this is an Amazon problem, a publisher problem, or a Kindle (which I guess *would* be Amazon) problem, but it was insanely distracting and I would have asked for my money back if I hadn't borrowed it from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library.
Some of the stories are good, but they are wasted here.
Some are definitely aimed at adults (as in not appropriate for children). A rather long story right in the middle seems more like a humorous memoir and totally doesn't fit with the general horror theme. Then again, I'm not sure this actually has a theme.
The majority of the stories are either creepy or scary. A few are really well done.
Overall, I enjoyed this read, though I probably shouldn't have read them just before going to bed. Recommended for folks who like short story collections, horror, and a little humor.

I wasn't sure what to make of Teddy Bear Cannibal Massacre when I received it. I mean are these guys serious? Yup, there's a rather angry looking Teddy Bear right on the cover. Read morePublished on July 7, 2006 by Tim Janson
