Reading: The butchers husband & other stories

The Butcher’s Husband and Other Stories by Amy Cross

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I don’t know man, it’s not horror in the way I’d label the genre, it’s more like surreal nightmares. And the thing is that I personally were never into super surreal stories. I absolutely hated the story ‘the butchers husband’, it was stupid (and not made better because there were a part 2), it was unoriginal and trivial. With that said, then the story about the talking dog, and the story about the cop with the tumor was absolutely great, and I enjoyed those two way more than I thought I would. This attests to the authors skill, because when you present someone like me with a genere than I honestly don’t care for and you still draw me in and hold my interest – it is because you are good at story telling!.
Would I reccomend this book? no! absolutely not! This author has written so many books, and so many books much, much better than this one.
