Rezension zu "Skinner" von David Bernstein

Survival may not always be what you want...
misspidervor 3 Jahren

A couple of friends on their way to spend the weekend together, a creepy gas station on their way, a car accident that leaves them stranded in the middle of nowhere in the deep winter, an evil force out for blood... Sounds familiar? Yep, that's what I thought as well, and for the most time of the book I couldn't shake the feeling I've already read a book or watched a movie about the story going on here. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a rerun of a well-tried plot every time, as long as it has some unique parts. With Skinner, I found this uniqueness solely in the Old One.

Unlike your common monster, he did not attack his victims himself, but made them do all the work on their own - and in a very hideous way. Seeing their friendship coming apart, how instead of fighting together against the Old One they ended up fighting each other was unusual and unexpected.

While the characters were all very stereotyped, at least the Old One was special and gave the book its much-needed originality to set it apart from similar stories. Nice and nasty, especially towards the end.

(I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)

Rezension zu "Apartment 7C" von David Bernstein

Revenge is sweet...
misspidervor 3 Jahren

Apartment 7c is a revenge story about 82-year old Beth, who decides to put an end to her abusive neighbor...

I really enjoyed the straight and uncomplicated style and yes, I did feel a sick satisfaction at the man's bloody punishment. Though the outcome was predictable, the way in which the revenge was exercised was not.

My only minor criticism is that the interspersed hints at Beth's emotional turmoil about her brutal actions were too short to make a convincing impression. They should have either been left out completely for the sake of a pure gorefest or explored in greater detail.
