4 out of 5 stars!
Let’s start right off and talk about this cover! It is absolutely incredible!
Now I know the skin of a book isn’t the star of the show, the true treasure lies in the guts of the read but you can’t deny that a masterpiece on the outside isn’t the perfect eye candy every book worm adores.
When I opened the pages of Hunger Pangs I had no idea that this was Scott’s debut collection. I really should have done my research better, but honestly for this to be his first collection out into the world I am very impressed.
Scott’s stories are unique and raw. His writing is smooth and consumable. Usually when I read a collection there are a couple that really, really stand out or that you may enjoy more than others. This collection I had a hard time pin pointing my favorite. I enjoyed them all for different reasons! I use the saying “like children, you love them all just as much, only in different ways.” You can’t possibly pick a favourite.
Hunger Pangs is a collection worth getting lost in, transporting out of reality into these dark, bizarre, frightening worlds…. that is if you think you can handle it of course.
I can’t thank Scott enough for sending me an e-copy to read and review, obviously I will need to pick up a physical copy as soon as I can to add to my collection…..I mean….that COVER! But when I saw that Hunger Pangs was on audible I downloaded it right away knowing it would help me get to this review so much sooner, so I can also say the audiobook was done very well, worth checking out.
Hunger Pangs will leave a lasting, haunting effect!

One thought on “Hunger Pangs: Stories by Scott J. Moses”
I love that you liked all the stories! Indeed, with a short story collection I usually have my favourites and stories I didn’t like much. Great review! I will be watching your video review when I catch up with BookTube, I’m a bit behind and I don’t think I’ll watch lots in the next few days either (because of other things to do, not because I don’t want to!). Sending you love as always!
