I was drawn to this book by the book cover. It is so creepy and perfect for a horror book. Sadly, though the book cover is really the only thing that is really great about this collection of short stories. There was only a few that I found decent. Even then I did not find them too scary.
This story could have been so much better, but I found that it was too short. Just as I was starting to get into the story, it ended without really a reason. I was left confused on the ending.
This story did give me more of the horror vibes. However, I had no interest in the main character, therefore, I did not really care what happened to her. Yet, it still was a good story.
This one was a bit gruesome, but I also felt uncomfortable reading. Due to the subject matter. Which I am surprised would be featured in a book with present events in today's world.
This story actually was one that I did like. It had the creepy vibes I was looking for and it felt like a story. If you think about the monster that lives in this story, it is scary.
Another really short story. It felt too rushed, but it did make me think twice on the type of gym equipment machines I use.
This title story is the only one that really, truly felt like it was fleshed out the most. It was the longest of the six stories. My favorite story of the six as well. I could see this story playing on screen.
