Read full description of the books:



The 3 tales of terror are supposed to be ruthless & chilling with cliff hanger endings. The blurb says, The characters spout silly jargon, wrestle with their writing problems, preen their tender egos, and skewer their colleagues. Most are likeable: their vanity is so human, it's almost touching. I thought the characters were sad examples of humanity with nothing particularly funny about them or their situations. I couldn't work up any particular empathy for any of them, although I did sympathize a bit with the cat in the first story.

Unfortunately, I was pretty sure where the story was going very early on & that's exactly where it went. There were absolutely no surprises including the 'cliff hanger' ending, which fell flat as it landed. It was just too obvious. This meant that all the description attempting to set the mood was boring as hell as I kept waiting for each predictable point to FINALLY get made.

Worse, I didn't find one of the major character's motivations logical at all. The entire theme of the story was self interest trumping morals. (view spoiler)[ The girl friend is obviously similar to the main character in that regard so why would she hook up with him? His star is not ascending & she doesn't seem to even like him very much. (hide spoiler)] Amidst all the long winded discussion, I had far too much time for every flaw to become glaring.

I never made it all the way through the next 2 stories. I tried, but found each of them as boring as the first, so moved on.
