Tales of Terror
review 1: This is Rangiatea's review.Tales of terror from the tunnels mouth was a very good book if you like horrifying books. This book is about a boy who is sent on a train by his step mother, when he boards the train all the passengers seem to be asleep, as the train approaches the tunnels mouth the train stops. Time is ticking, to pass time a female passenger dressed all in white grabs the boys attention with her stories, though these aren't normal stories told by a person these are stories that would make your skin crawl. This is definitely one of the best books I have read so I would recommend this book to readers that like mystery and horror.
review 2: This took me back to those compilation horror films which seemed to be all the rage in the 1970s. It is a bit of
... morea curate's egg. The good parts are very good, but the bad parts fall flat. While set in the Victorian era, there is little attempt (or should that be success) to catch the English or the "feel" of that period. Some of the themes are well worn and occasionally nothing new seems to be present. However others are well-crafted and I thought novel in their approach. In general the horros are of the Jamesian variety and there was a pleasing lack of the simple gore which I for one find tedious in the extreme. I did feel at times some could have done with a little more development.I shall look out for more books by the author but I suspect not actively hunt them down. less
