Book Review: Alone At Midnight by Scott Zavoda


 
Review:
 
Growing up I used to love watching Tales From The Crypt and The Twilight Zone. This book is right up that alley! To be honest, I was expecting horror stories with goriness and real scariness. But I was not disappointed with Alone At Midnight.
 
Alone at Midnight consists of seven fairly short stories. Once you start reading the very first story, you will pleasantly surprised. My favorite story from the book, Beneath The Sand, was really great. It was about a Vietnam Vet and mysterious drownings at the beach. Also, another one I liked was Bobby which was about two young brothers (one disabled and wheelchair-bound) and the troubles they face.
 
Overall, I would give this book 3 out of 5 stars. The stories were good, but the grammatical errors had me reading sentences over again to try to make more sense. I look forward to more from this author! I love his writing style!

About the Author:
 
 
 
I was born in Cleveland Ohio, moved away twice, but the city reeled me back in. The best days for me are the lazy one's spent roughhousing with my little girls at home.

Writing came almost as a surprise in my adulthood-I was under the impression only writers can become writers, or something like that.

I grew up on the same big mystery/horror/thriller authors all of us read in the nineties . . . Dean Koontz, John Saul, Stephen King, Straub. Their writing is magic and while I strive for no less in my own, I realize it takes years and years. But let the journey begin!
