Orsk furniture store is the typical large corporation store. It is perfectly designed to draw in buyers and have them spend lots of money without thinking. Something strange is happening in an Orsk store in Ohio. Every morning employees find displays disorganized and strange leavings in the showrooms. Their sales are going down, and employees are worried about their jobs. Employees are picked to work a shift overnight to see if they can discover what is happening in their store. During their patrols, they find something worse than they ever imagined.
I received a free copy of this book from Quirk Books to review*. I had a great time reading this book! I thought it was a very unique way to present a horror story. The book was formatted like a store catalog. I thought this detail added a lot to the book, and gave it a great feel. I appreciate it when authors and publishers use creative methods to enhance the reading experience.
Not only was this a humorous take on the traditional horror story, it had some great observations on the retail experience. Anyone who has worked in retail will enjoy some of the comments in this book. Readers should not worry, even with all the amusing comments, some of the horror details in the story still made me squirm. I liked the combination of horror and humor. It was well balanced and made for a fun, although semi-horrific read. It is a short book, so you will be able to read it in a couple of sittings. It was the perfect book to get me in the Halloween spirit.
I would recommend reading this book.
Here is a book trailer from Quirk Books for those who are curious about HorrorStor.
*Receiving a free copy of this book does not change my review. It simply provides me with a copy of the book sooner than I would have gotten to it, or a book I might not have heard about otherwise,
