A Cure for Chaos: Horrors From Hospitals and Psych Wards by Tobias Wade

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This is one of these books I got for free, and it’s so long ago that I don’t even recall if it was free on Amazon, or if it was a gift from someone.
Anyways I got around to reading it, and dude – why has this been waiting for so long in my library? I think it’s a combination of the title and the cover, it just looks real bad – as in REAL bad.
But whaddaya know, it isn’t! it is actually a really, really nice collection of horror shorts, and the good stories in there absolutely outweigh the bad. Also it has a load of stories and you absolutely get something for your money. I say, free or not – get it! While not all the stories are about hospitals or mental asylums (I seem to remember there were a couple where I wondered why he’d put them in there), they are almost all strong stories which are definitly worth a read.

I did not change my mind abt the cover, it is super lame – but for once I got caught by the cliche (you know the one about books and their covers).
