    A nice, quick read. I've always said the best kind of horror is the terror that weaves through society, and this story is one prime example of that. For everyone? No, the mature themes included in the book may offend some people; some topics will always be risqué, such is the nature of humanity. Luckily, the author has the ability to pull this off, avoiding the potential footfalls of such a topic.

I've always said the best kind of horror is the terror that weaves through society, and this story is one prime example of that. For everyone? No, the mature themes included in the book may offend some people; some topics will always be risqué, such is the nature of humanity. Luckily, the author has the ability to pull this off, avoiding the potential footfalls of such a topic. In a short page length, he brings a primitive childhood fear to brutal life, twisting it into a horrific story of discovery and susceptibility. It will offend and it will spook, but most of all, Hupp has created a genuine story of terror, one that any adult will instantly remember from an innocent childhood gone by. Horror is taking something we know and scaring us with it; Hupp has done just that. If you have a spare half hour, you can do a lot worse.

    Short and brutal Can't say much without ruining the story, and what a story it was. Extremely brutal yet thought provoking. Well done.

    The worst kind of Monster The title is so befitting to the character. Teaching racism is so not right. It is a learned disease. There is only one race, called human. We all need to love one another, see how that works out ! The author Shaun Hupp was so on point ! I look forward to reading his other books. Very thought provoking and interesting, a good lesson to learn. The Truth ! I wish I could post this book on Facebook and Twitter accounts. Some people could actually learn from this story.

    The Worst Kind of Monster: A Short Horror Story powerful & thought provoking short story by Shaun Hupp. I thought I knew where the story was heading - but I was caught off guard! I really hope that the author will revisit Dustin one day - introduce us to him as an adult, and touch on the nature vs. nurture battle that will be raging within him.

    A dark family fairy tale for the damned. I loved it. Shaun Hupp is a high quality author of darkness and I can't wait to read more.

    It all depends on where your horror threshold is as to how disturbing you will find this short story. The author starts off with lots of warnings that you might find the following story very graphic and so I was expecting something good. To be honest, compared to a Tim Miller book or other extreme horror authors this is not that graphic. It's well written mind you, it just did not live up to its own hype. Meh, maybe I'm just too desensitised these days.

    This is a short horror story. No ghosts or vampires, not even a zombie but it is a horror story. The horror is what people can do to each other. No real surprises here. I kind of figured out what was going on pretty early on but the real horror is at the end. The story is good although a tad predictable but worth the 15 minutes it will take to read it.

    Good writing, I just didn't like the story content. Even after the authors explanation.

    As far as books go, yes, it was written well enough, kept you guessing pretty far into the book, had a slightly unexpected ending, and was probably a good showcase of the writer's other work. If you're not comfortable enough reading a character from out of the 60's, violence against women, kids and racially motivated violence, you might not want to read this. Why only a 3? IMHO it could have been about 3x longer, explored the protagonist a little bit more, and had spent time with creating some fla As far as books go, yes, it was written well enough, kept you guessing pretty far into the book, had a slightly unexpected ending, and was probably a good showcase of the writer's other work.
