Creepy, imaginative, and thoroughly enjoyable.
Dreaming at the Top of My Lungs by Israel Finn is just the kind of horror that I most enjoy. Plenty of thrills, lots of chills, sometimes a little bit on the visceral blood-soaked horror side, but all over great entertainment that makes you occasionally cackle out loud in malicious glee (or maybe that’s just me).
Some of the stories are a little (or a lot) darker, such as a disturbing tale of domestic violence that leads to horrifying vengeance from beyond the grave, while others are poignant reflections of our society and potential dystopian futures. Many contain relevant messages or themes that make them more than just a quick bit of forgettable entertainment.
All ten stories are engaging, wonderfully crafted and well written, and the book (I read the Kindle version) is professionally presented. I couldn’t really find much not to like about this book, other than wishing it was longer.
My personal favourite story is “No Such Thing As Monsters”.
I would highly recommend this book to any other horror fans out there. Overall, I would rate it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
