Box by Matt Shaw was definitely psychologically horrible!
I’d say it was a very simple concept, in that it was a short story, with very little actually going on. But it got right into my head!
I was hooked from the first few paragraphs, just because I’m a sucker for horror and I wanted to find out if it would disgust me, as other books by this author sound pretty hardcore!
Maybe I’m hardened to certain things, as being a horror fan for so long, I’ve read some twisted stuff in my time! A couple of parts made me feel a bit uncomfortable, but overall, I really liked it.
So, if you’ve got half hour or so to kill and fancy a horror that’s written by an author who thinks, erm,‘outside the box’, (ha!) give it a go!
I recommend this to readers who aren’t too squeamish, but it’s just horrid enough to subtly shock.
