Wow! Just wow! This book was amazing! It captured my complete attention from the first story and held it throughout the whole book. I was very sorry to see it end as I couldn't wait to read more and see what happens. The stories aren't what I would think of as normal horror as they deal with situations that are horrifying for the characters involved instead of scaring the reader. I highly recommend this book and definitely will reread it!
