"Chills" by Sahar Sabati: Spotlight & Review

Chills: a short story collection
by Sahar Sabati

Genre: Suspense
Age Category: Adult
Release Date: 17 October 2013


The same people are impossibly spotted in two different places at once; a man considers murdering the husband of a woman he loves; while driving home very early in the morning, a driverless car appears out of the fog and follows two sisters home. Fear of the unknown, emotional intensity, and plain old creepiness will give you chills long after you have finished reading the seven stories in this collection.

About the author:
The author of Spirit Within Club and Chills: A Short Story Collection, Sahar was born the first of three siblings and the first of eight cousins who grew up together. Thrust in the role of head of the brood at a very early age, she honed her imagination by creating stories and plotlines the eight of them could play to all summer long. But soon, her interest in the paranormal took its toll on said brood. Worried on the long-term effects (as well as potential therapy costs) of this continual exposure to increasingly scary stories her oldest was (too) expertly weaving for their terrified ears, her mother gave her a typewriter – and a writer was born. Many books, a couple of screenplays, countless short stories, numerous essays, two blogs, and one Facebook page later, Sahar joined the ranks of Blogcritics, delving into the world of reviews.

I was given a copy of this short story collection for review and I enjoyed it, even if I didn't find it particularly chilling. That may just be me, however, as very few books these days seem to have the power to give me goosebumps. CHILLS was, however, very well written and enjoyable and I appreciated that the author didn't try to use gore as a means of scaring her readers. Good old fashioned bump in the nights were to be had here in bite-sized pieces, and even if it doesn't scare you, they are fun and easy to read.
