More Drac von Stoller!!!
The thin characters in this story constantly, annoyingly, refer to "the game Dare", and their dialogue is very unrealistic. The ghost, when it appears, is described as merely 'a ghost'. This is another example of von Stoller's well-meaning but anorexic horror.
On his bio Drac von Stoller says that he doesn't develop his stories because he would habve written too many words. I have no doubt of his love for the genre, but this statement almost says that writing is hard work for him, a slog, and not a passion. This comes across in his writing; his stories seem to be told as quickly and simply as possible; pile em up, and get them out. How he has managed to sell 400+ Audiobooks I have no idea, but on the strength of two or three of his stories I have read, his writing has little style and no substance. I have no wish to bash this writer's work, but for me personally, I fail to see the appeal.
It would be interesting to read what other authors could do with von Stollers usual word count of six or seven hundred words.
