There were 13 total "stories" written in this book. And while the title of the book is "Scairy Tales", it didn't really live up to it. The authors starts by discussing all the different types of horror there is. I wish he had researched a little more than just looking for definitions in Wikipedia.

His stories (besides not really psychological, physical or otherwise) felt as they were simply book ideas. More like a writers journal where he writes all possible story ideas that later have to be expanded upon.

If the author were to pick ONE of the short stories and work it well, he may have a complete book in his hands.

Story Characters:

Since the stories were so short and didn't feel completed, we didn't really care about the characters. While at the end of some of the stories, readers sometimes felt sad, it wasn't directed towards the characters of the book, it was directed to the situation.

Writing Style:

There was nothing remarkable about the writing. Once you move on to another story, you tend to forget the other ones.

Editing Style:

Besides story lines, which I talked about already, everything else was ok.

Overall Thoughts:

I'll pass. None of the stories really stood out to me. ( )
