Reviews of The Corpses of Old Farm Hill Road: The Arrogant Man by Tabitha Short

Book Sake reviewed on Nov. 15, 2012

This short story is creepy and violent, just what it was supposed to be. While the title character, The Arrogant Man, isn’t a character I’d cry over, he still suffered things no one should be put through. It made me think of Dexter in a way since this family has targeted a “bad guy”, but Dexter has more reasoning behind it – these chicks are just sick and having fun tormenting this guy. The author has a seriously wicked mind and the story would translate well into a horror movie that would have me covering my eyes throughout most of it!

What happens when a man who lives to control others meets a family of women who can only feel pleasure by causing pain? The horror progresses and is compounded by each meticulous, mundane detail, proceeding at a deliberate pace until the tension is unbearable. Believable and utterly chilling. A quick but disturbing read.

I read this after reading Ms. Short’s ‘Please Do Feed The Animals Zoo’.

Again, the tale was nicely set up but this time the protagonist is the far less likeable Arrogant Man of the title. Despite the unpleasant nature of the main character, you still find yourself on his side after he ends up at the mercy of a most unpleasant all female family.

Knowing that the Arrogant Man is due some comeuppance doesn’t make his ordeal any less excruciating. You find yourself putting on his shoes and thinking what you could possibly do to turn the tables. The tension build with every page you turn as you wonder what could possibly happen next and whether escape is just around the corner.

If you liked ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ then you’ll enjoy this.

I was excited to learn I was chosen to do a pre-release review of this short story. The family in this story is really creepy, like the Addams Family minus the family-fun entertainment factor. The girl picks up a guy online with the subtle promise of sex, then brings him to her farm where her and her mother do horrendous things to him. I don't want to give anything away, but this story is really chilling. You never quite know if he's going to get away or not until the very end. I was happy to find out this is a series and the next ones are going to be coming out soon. I can't wait to read them, this one is a 5-star rating for me and I don't ever give 5-star ratings. My stomach is still churning.
