There’s a whole host of benefits allotted to those, who, like myself, possess these very specialized sets of skills. One of the benefits is, that afterward, you sleep really good at night and I mean really good. What? Well, it’s true, it’s hard to believe I know, but trust me it’s true. Sam, my uncle, sent me to this exotic land that used to smell of frankincense and myrrh. He sent us there, my brothers-in-arms and me, so that we could become proficient in the art of death. We we’re good at what we did, because now it only smells of gun powder, burnt oil, and death. That’s a hell of a predicament you’ve found yourself in, isn’t it? Well at least now you know I’m good with a gun and thanks to my Uncle Sam I am also very comfortable with a blade. This ten inch beauty here is a staple, its sharp enough to be use a machete. But this one, with the gut hook, is my all time favorite and I’ll show you why here in a minute. Now, I can understand why you broke into my home, these are tough times, and a guys gotta eat I get that. I do. Maybe I would have let you live if you had simply demanded my money and jewels, but, then again, I was never known for being charitable.
If you’ve read my previous reviews you will come to notice I never reveal details about the story I’m reviewing because it’s up to each person to find out what goes on in the book/novel. If you’ve paid attention to this detail then most of you know its common ground for me to write only about my reasons for either disliking or liking a book.
With that said, let’s go on with the review.
And They Will Live Happily Ever After is a great read!
I love horror books so it came as no surprise to me how much I would come enjoy this anthology. Each story is gripping and attention grabbing. There’s a mixture of comicality, horror, and insight in each individual tale, which I happened to appreciate a lot.
My favorite part about this book? Well, it has fourteen short horror stories. It doesn’t get any better than that.
The author did an amazing job at separating each story to where you don’t feel as if you’re reading a rewrite of the previous one. Instead, each short tale has its own unique visual elements to project to the reader.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to everyone.
