Little Terrors (A Collection of Horror and Ghost Stories) - David Jester

This chilling and comprehensive collection of horror and ghost stories is sure to send a shiver up your spine! I was very excited to get stuck into another of Jester's books, and I haven't been let down. This collection of ghost stories is written very cleverly in order to keep you in suspense throughout; it is definitely one of those books that you won't be able to put down. I wouldn't recommend reading them before you go to bed at night, but if you love the horror genre you are sure to love this book!

I don't usually buy books that are a collection of short stories because I am often left feeling that the story is underdeveloped. However, despite the shorter length of these stories, which is an inherent aspect of a compellation book, Jester manages to fully develop the characters and storylines without it feeling rushed, and in a way very appropriate for the horror genre. One of my favourite things about this book is that the stories weren't predictable, and every time I finished a story I was excited to go onto the next. The reader is left feeling fully satisfied with each story, even if they don't end the way you might expect.

Little Terrors is a dark book, as you might expect for a collection of horror and ghost stories, but it also includes comical and humorous moments. The author gets the perfect balance between easy reading, horror and an added touch of comedy here and there.

Jester has a distinct style of writing that should definitely win him prizes in the future. I don't want to give too much away about these scary stories, but I would definitely recommend that you get yourself a copy of this fantastic book as soon as you can.

This is the first book I've read by David Jester and I could not believe how much I enjoyed these short stories. This is easily the best collection of stories I've read on the Kindle in over 18 months. All the characters are believable, from the evil old woman in Wipeout to the scared little boy in The Sleepover, and the pace of every story is almost perfect. The hardest part of this review is trying to avoid sounding like a Publishers drone. I hope Mr. Jester makes the big time soon.

Really refreshing read. The stories were well written and nicely paced with a couple of flash fiction pieces thrown in. The pick of the bunch for me was probably Wipeout, the old lady was both sickening and hilarious

I've read many of Jester's books and haven't been disappointed yet. This is a seriously talented author who can effortlessly engage the reader within the first paragraph and not let go. An easy to read blend of horror, humour, suspense and surprises. This short collection of stories is a must read on your Kindle. Jester is up there with Murakami as one of my favourite authors. Always dependable, always fantastic writing.

David Jester may very well possess genius. This is no joke. In the world of Kindle novels his works are gems, and it better only be oversight that his work isn't top shelf soon.

"The Polystyrene Man" is a great story about a writer and the end of nothing. "Wipeout" is a terrifying story about neighbors driven to drive each other to hell.

The stories read so intimately, and autobiographically that I'm very happy David Jester lives on a different continent from me. Yet I fear that as good as his writing is, at some point he'll end up in my city of Los Angeles. When he does, I'm nailing shut my windows and hiding under the covers.

Just finished and my first thoughts are that I did not really enjoy it much. I found the short stories too repetitive and very dark without the writers usual humour.

I've become a David Jester fan but this wasn't up to the brilliant standard of his other creations. I'll be sticking with him though.
