    Engaging horror stories, but technically unpolished There were two stories in this combo book. The first one falls prey to the typical horror tropes. The second one was more intelligent and I felt more engaged with the characters. I did however have a few issues with the unpolished nature of both books, several inconsistencies in time line, mistakes in character name in the second story, superfluous vocabulary and a few grammar errors. It just could have used someone going over it with a fine toothed Engaging horror stories, but technically unpolished There were two stories in this combo book.

I did however have a few issues with the unpolished nature of both books, several inconsistencies in time line, mistakes in character name in the second story, superfluous vocabulary and a few grammar errors. It just could have used someone going over it with a fine toothed comb before publication. Despite my anal retentiveness regarding the technical writing issues, these stories were engaging, I really liked that the author put effort into the backstories for a lot of these characters. It made me care more about what was going to happen to them. It was scary and very gory (not for the faint of heart). I think the title of this book series doesn’t really fit. I was expecting to read about several scary places and the history etc. But this is more horror fiction, set in real life scary places. So just be aware of that when you start these books. Either way overall I’m not disappointed I read this, and it was entertaining enough, so I’ve given it 3 stars.

    I'll never look at dolls the same again. How could a little girl's doll be scary, you ask? Easy, just get Jeremy Bates to write a book about them. He could take the most innocent item and make it scary enough to give you nightmares. Imagine you're stuck a a deserted island where 2 of your friends have already been killed, and the legends say the ghost of a little girl who drowned there still walks the island. Are all those 100's of dolls really just dolls? Or do they come alive when you turn you I'll never look at dolls the same again. How could a little girl's doll be scary, you ask?

    DNF, which is ironic as I recently had a conversation with my sister about how I am a completionist and have to finish all books that I start. My reasons for not finishing have nothing to do with the author as he seemed to be a decent writer. I realized, partway through Helltown that I was no longer the type of person that was comfortable reading that type of story. I still like the horror genre, but I like it a little less disturbing.

    Jeremy Bates does it again! I don't really have time to write an actual "review," so I'll just say, Jeremy Bates has never disappointed me. His books are incredible, his storytelling is sublime. He is truly a master at his craft. His "Worlds Scariest Places" books are amazing, and I recommend them fully and without exception. To anyone who wants to read a good book, this is it.

    The usual fantastic story I love this series, always a pleasure to read. The storylines are based on real areas and characters are well fleshed out. Both of these are suitably spooky!

    Riveting Horror It takes a master of the craft to wind a real place i to a riveting horror story. Author Jeremy Bates is certainly a master. Two twisted stories that will make you want to read with all the lights on. Descriptive stories with great characters.

    Page turners Both stories are woven so well that I didn't want to set them down. I'm just happy that I didn't have nightmares., but it's been great replaying the stories over again in my mind.

    Didn't want to put the book away! Both stories were really good. I'm a sucker for ghost stories and creepy stuff in general so this was right up my alley! 5/5 would read again.

    Review on Helltown Read the first volume (The Forest & The Catacombs) not bad. Now the volune 2 I just finished Helltown ok it gave me the creeps. Way more realistic and snakes (I bloody hate snakes). The other 2 stories didn't scare me. BUT Helltown was more realistic- hello there are psychos all over the place and people go missing all the time. Maybe it's because they ventured off for cheap thrills in HELLTOWN (cue the ominous music). Out of all the stories I have read of Bates this one has bee Review on Helltown Read the first volume (The Forest & The Catacombs) not bad.

Maybe it's because they ventured off for cheap thrills in HELLTOWN (cue the ominous music). Out of all the stories I have read of Bates this one has been the best. I liked the characters- the good, the bad and the ugly ass snakes! Can't say anymore, but let's just say I got what I expected and... (view spoiler)[ like the description of being crushed to death and eaten alive by anacondas. Sent shivers down my spine (hide spoiler)] Review on Island of the Dolls Read this story much later....like several months after (caught up in work, holidays, etc.) Any way finished it last night and......was disappointed because the other 3 stories from Scariest Place in the World were much creepier, darker and messed up. Bates doesn't disappoint as the character were likable. But I wasn't scared and unlike Helltown which sent chills down my spine- this story was meh. Now!!! on to his next book--- The Taste of Fear (reading reviews from before this will probably be more up my alley)
