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.
