Side By Side Review: Donnie, Andrew, Tav on IMAGINARY FRIEND by Stephen Chbosky

IMAGINARY FRIEND: Review by The Horror Hypothesis

When I heard that Stephen Chbosky was moving into the horror genre nearly 20 years after gracing the world with the flawless coming of age novel, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, I was thrilled.  I absolutely love when writers branch out and explore different genres and I had a strong feeling that Chbosky’s foray into horror would be successful due to the literary chops he flashed throughout TPOBAW.  However, I am sad to say that at the end of this novel I was left feeling heavy disappointment.

Kallie & Marcy's Side By Side Review of A COSMOLOGY OF MONSTERS by Shaun Hamill

A COSMOLOGY OF MONSTERS- Shaun Hamill

“I think horror is the most important fiction in the world,” he said.

I sit here with tears streaming down my face as my mind and heart digest the last few pages of A COSMOLOGY OF MONSTERS. What a ride of a book.  

 

I first want to apologize to Kallie, my buddy for this book.  When we first started reading this I was in the starting stages of a really big move. A move that would take me from Texas, which funnily enough is the author’s,...
