This review is from: Teatro Grottesco (Paperback)
I couldn't actually finish this book. Not because it's bad, but because I found it so frightening. The brooding atmosphere followed me around everywhere, so I only read 4 stories and then had to stop! My friend, who had read it first, really enjoyed it, but wasn't affected by it like I was. (I am not a wuss, usually. In fact the friend I mentioned found Heart-shaped Box one of the scariest things he had read, while I thought it was a bit of fun featuring a malevolent ghost.)
If you want to be frightened, then I recommend this book.
The writing is superb and very stylish, evocative and sinister.
