Fear is fun,
This review is from: Thirty Scary Tales (Illustrated): Horror Stories (Kindle Edition)
Entertaining and entrancing read. Rayne Hall is an amazing storyteller.
I read parts of this book while waiting for the dentist, and it's ideal for that. (Perhaps not so good if you already suffer from a fear of dentists). The stories are well-written and captivating so I could really get into them and forget about the lethally dull waiting room. I think they'd be great for train journeys as well.
The stories in this collection are well-written and varied. They have different lengths, different subjects, and different degrees of scariness. Depending on your personal fears, a story from this collection can leave you either a little uneasy, or full of dread.
The author often uses existing places as the settings. This adds realism to the stories and makes them easy to relate to.
A feature I didn't expect but did enjoy was that at the end of each story the author gives some information about how she came to write that particular story, and/or something about its background.
If you are going to make a long journey, or you expect to have to wait a lot (like at the dentist) this is the perfect book to take along!
