Little bits of horror
Repackaged Presents by Mark Tullius is a short collection of five stories that grab you immediately, build up and then disposes of you, so to speak.
I found the brevity of these stories to my liking rather than a weakness. Each provided enough information to guess what might happen and/or understand what happens when it finally does. A couple of them might have you squirming uncomfortably. Every one of them will serve as a reminder to check all of your door and window locks, which reminds me...
I listened to the audio version and found the narrator to be just about right. These stories beg for a bit of an understated reading and Corey Snow does this very well.

Dark and creepy short stories
Any additional comments?
There are 4 short stories in this compilation and each one get creepier and freakier until you get to the last one that made me say " What the hell?" Seriously these are some pretty messed up stories. If short messed up stories are your thing then this book is for you! I love how each one just send shivers down my spine, especially the one that is in a mental institution. Mark is a master at these kind of short stories and even though it's only just over an hour long there is a lot of story packed into it. I sometimes wonder about just what goes on in his head when I read some of his stories and this one even more so.I really enjoyed this trip down the strange and twisted road these stories brought me on.
