Rating 3.5/5


This book is a collection of short fiction from an author who I’ve followed on social media for a little while now. They’re a little like an insomniac’s bad dreams and she explains in the introduction that they were inspired by a subreddit, both of which made it worth reading, at least for me.

It might not be for everyone, but it’s a good read if you’re into horror and/or bizarre fiction. And it has some pretty cool illustrations inside it, too. I’m glad I got a copy.

This is basically a well-crafted thriller novella from an indie writer friend of mine who recently impressed with me another thriller called The Method. Here, we basically follow the goings on in a small town when a social media influencer comes to town and has a run in with a crazy, overprotective mum who reminds me of Margaret White.

I don’t have the best luck with thrillers and quite often I find them to be disappointing. This one just worked for me, and I think a lot of that was down to the length. Ralston didn’t try to drag it out, and he actually packed a hell of a lot of characterisation and worldbuilding into the pages that he did have. It’s hard-hitting, for sure.
