A Frightening, Descriptive Gorefest!
Frightening? Yes, I even started reading it out loud and my wife froze in her place and listened. The grisly detail pulled this one off, a quick but fully-realized horror experience. Some are the sentences seem a bit passive, and the story would be even better if the active voice is made more consistent. Poor dog! I’m not sure how I feel about the narrator’s explanations at the end of it, whether they are needed or take away from the story. My overall experience up until that point is strong and frightening enough for me not to think too much on it. There is a great amount of raw talent here with some room to grow, which isn’t a bad thing.
