Featured Book Review: Killing Your Boss
Killing Your Boss was a great horror serial killer read. The author, James DeSantis did a marvelous job with this short story that had many twists in it. I like how the author describes each character on their own page. James was very descriptive with his writing to the point…
The Academy - Bentley Little Horror Book Review
Horror books Review
I really enjoyed “Dispatch,” “The Store” and some other books by Bentley Little. He is outrageous and over-the-top (the demon-run Store starts selling adult s—products on the toy aisle). I enjoyed “The Policy,” too (demon characters sell insurance that you can’t refuse).
“The Academy” is great satire, but I laughed so much that I couldn’t suspend belief and accept it as a scary story. I stopped reading after a 180 pages. It just got too over-the-top. The PE teacher had the cheerleaders take off their underclothes for a performance! Earlier the art teacher demanded that some mothers model in the nude for the students! (One student attempts suicide after the kids start teasing him about his hot mama.)
If you can skim over these things, then I think you might really like the book. It was a little too much for me.
So, two stars or five—I just don’t know. In my opinion, here are the best Bentley Little novels:
1. “Dispatch” (This compelling story begins with a boy writing complaint letters to companies and getting coupons with letters of apology).
Dispatch (Signet Novel)
2. “The Store” (an evil Wal-Mart style store opens in a small Arizona town, and soon takes over—even running the sheriff’s office).
3. “The Policy” (a man moves from LA to Tuscon after his divorce, and after the window on his car is broken, he is offered insurance).
