It is the bar where they each tell their tale...
And I will not spoil it. Ashley Lister has a writing style that captures the tension and quirkiness, yet is full of dark humour. Some of his descriptions will make you smile which can, at times, give you a fulse sense of security.
I have thoughly enjoyed reading it. If you like your horror with a sense of intrigue, writen buy someone who obviously loved what they were doing, then pick up a copy of this, you'll be thoroughly entertained.
It didn't scare me; perhaps that's just my nature. But I wasn't looking for that - I read books to be entertained and enjoy a good yarn. This one is.
Before reading it, I was sort of aware it was a collection of tales from a group of work colleagues. I didn't expect the tales to be interwoven - bringing more depth and cohesion to the stories. Clever.
The characters? Realistic. Often unpleasant, but you still want to find out their fates. The author has a twisted sense of humour which is echoed in some of the descriptive passages.
I thought the ending was slightly abrupt, but perhaps that is because I wanted to read more. I wasn't sure what to expect - I've never really been attracted towards horror books (the last one I read was "Carrie" in the early 80s - that wasn't bad and I think the author did quite well...) so I'm now asking myself, "Is Ashley's book typical of the genre?"
I don't know. I do know that if you haven't bought it and read it, you should. I look forward to the next one.
I very much enjoy stories and characters that are interwoven. Excellent description throughout and well balanced with appropriate dark humour. Turn the lights off, settle down and get spooked.
