Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Little offers twenty-seven one-punch shockers…The best of them—that is to say, most of them—giddily riff on preposterous premises that one imagines Little tackling just to see if he can pull them off…Little loves sowing chaos by breaking the social contract—and his readers love him for it.” Booklist
“Presents a wide range of scenarios with one common goal—to scare the heck out of its readers and listeners…Each story is no more than forty-five minutes and is read by one of seven different narrators, which keeps the narration fresh…Each of the narrators, male and female alike, brings his or her own touch to the narration; most of the stories are read with distinct voices, and the level of energy and emotion ranges from detached to expressive while always fitting the tale. The stories are easy to follow, making this a great audiobook to introduce horror fans to the format.” Booklist (audio review)
“An ensemble of narrators approaches Little’s work by turns, bringing a variety of characters into the fold and helping listeners differentiate between settings…The narrators bring out the different styles of the stories, highlighting innocent, determined, and sinister characters, while the precision and empathy in their delivery serves to make Little’s stories intimate, unsettling, and visceral. Listeners will be drawn into Little’s work even as their feelings of dread or unease grow throughout the collection.” AudioFile
