  • Some Days Suck, Some Days Suck Worse on Aug. 23, 2011

    My cursor hovered between 4* and 5* for a while, but in the end I couldn't bring myself to give this title anything but 5*. I couldn't set my proofreader's critical gaze aside, and the few insignificant typos and misspellings that I spotted are the only reasons why I struggled initially to give this 5*. However, the most important fact is that the storylines themselves are superbly crafted, evoking both vivid imagery, and a very acute sense of the fears that plague people, haunting their both their waking thoughts and their unconscious minds. The writer shows a skilled understanding of exactly what it is that frightens people - 'Under My Bed' being the perfect example of that - and I found myself greatly enjoying all of the stories, chuckling away to myself and nodding along in agreement before the inevitable twist in the tale catches you off-guard and chills you to the core. My personal favourite was, I think, 'The Block' - I think perhaps the infamous curse of the writer's block is the thing that frightens me above all else. And again on a personal note, I loved the little bits of Polish heritage woven throughout - an insight into the author, and something I could really identify with as the granddaughter of a Polish immigrant. A cracking read, and I loved the author's evident disdain for happy endings! Thoroughly recommended.
