This book was OK..Some of the stories were interesting, but I think the cover is quite melodramatic considering the contents of the book.

Most of these stories weren't too bad, but I didn't find any of them to be really scary. My favorite story was the one by Laurie Faria Stolarz, I love all her books and short stories.

The ideas are good but the execution of the book isn't that great. I didn't even bother to read all the stories (O_O)

This book has kept me up for nights in a row. It's horror stories fascinated me to the point that I couldn't sleep at night. I would strongly recommend reading this if your someone like me who likes to torture themselves with books of horror.

I only liked about 4 of the short stories in this book. The section titled Beasts was the best out of all. Unless you are very determined to read this book, don't read it, or skip right to Beasts.
