I Died Yesterday by Andy Graham #Review
Posted by brriske
Revenge. Respect. Regret.
Sometimes doing the ‘right’ thing brings out the wrong in people.
I Died Yesterday – A evening with an old friend becomes a morning after that lasts for ever.
Chopper – A young man’s pursuit of his dream unearths a nightmare.
A Decision at Dusk – If you could bring someone back from the dead, would you use the power to help or hurt?
Sunflower – When the establishment fights back, they break more than the rules.
A View – Some noises are best left uninvestigated.
These stories are not happy, but they leave their mark. Some are set in our world; some are set in an alternate world (that of the Lords of Misrule series). This anthology combines dark humour, psychological terror, horror, and a splash of brightly coloured gore. It packs an emotional punch made even more harrowing by the paper-thin divide between reality and fiction.
I am an independent reviewer. This book is a collection of 5 horror short stories. Each short story feels like reading through a fun house mirror. The story seems to put the reader off balance. I kept trying to figure out the plots, but the gore for the sake of gore seemed to be the most prevalent theme. The first short story tried to shock the reader at the end, but the horrible descriptions of running over a 5 year old’s head with a car made any additional shock pale in comparison.
>This collection was so bizarre that only those readers with a definite love for horror and gore will like to read this book. The stories are vastly different in the characters involved, but that is the only positive part of the stories in my opinion.
>I am a reviewer for Romance Author’s that Rock. This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving this book 3 stars.
