3 short stories from Author E.H. James, all different, all totally gripping and compelling reads, definitely worth the read!

 

 

 

 

Laura

by E.H. James

 

 

Blurb:

George had seen some pretty strange things over his lifetime, travelling those roads. But if he had thought he’d seen it all, he was sadly mistaken. For if he believed finding Laura alone along some deserted roadside, in the middle of the night, was strange, then he had no idea that what was to follow would challenge the very boundaries of everything he’d ever known.

 

 

Book Review:

I think its really quite difficult to write a short story that’s good enough to capture the imagination and leave you wanting more, it takes a certain type of skill that’s not readily available, but seems to me that E.H. James has done this very very well!

I love a good ghost story and really got into these as a teen, so it was a delightful change to read a few of these short stories and enjoy them with as vigor as I used to!

This one was definitely one of those urban legend type – George is a salesman driving along in the middle of nowhere one night wondering where his life is headed. He sees a woman at the side of the road, she is soaked to her skin and he gives her a lift. But things are not quite what they seem.

A great read that leaves you wanting to know more, and is definitely a little thought provoking in itself.

The Fifth Floor

by E.H. James

 

 

Blurb:

Jeremy Brogan thought being a night watchman at a hospital would be easy, wandering long, dark, empty halls late at night. It might even get kind of boring, after a while…Except Jeremy is working at St. Michael’s; the most haunted hospital in the country.

It’s a good thing Jeremy doesn’t believe in ghosts. Everything he sees and hears must have some kind of explanation, right?

That he had to patrol the fifth floor was bad enough, but never in his wildest dreams did Jeremy think he would end up in the basement. Now all he wants is out…only the hospital, and its inhabitants, have other plans.

 

 

My Book Review:

Another great short story from E.H. James – spooky, chilling – one of those ones you hear about as a kid or there’s always a haunted house in a town with a reputation, its one of those, with of course a night watchman.

Jeremy is starting his first night as the night watchman at the hospital, should be an easy job just patrolling the corridors. He takes a few tips from the retiring night watchman Jake and then starts his patrols, but experiences some very strange goings on!

Very engrossing!! I could read a whole book full of these short stories. Highly recommended.

The Visitor’s Room

by E.H. James

 

 

Blurb:

If Amy thought this day on the psych ward would be just like any other…she would be wrong.

For although everything seemed normal, well as normal as a place like that could be, something was not quite right. That she couldn’t put her finger on it made it all the more perplexing.

Should you ask questions…when you aren’t prepared to hear the answer?

 

 

My Book Review:

Another memorable short story from E.H. James!

This is about Amy and her stay on the psych ward, another boring and monotonous day until she realises her best friend is missing and can’t seem to find her. Something is going on and is not quite right, but she can’t seem to work out just what it is!

This one pulls you in from the start and is very intriguing as it takes you along and the story unfolds. More than a little creepy this one, but I was certainly ready to keep reading! I certainly turning out to be a fan of these!
