Audiobook Review: THE NIGHT PARADE by Ronald Malfi (Narr. Tom Taylorson)

night-parade

Ronald Malfi is one of the best. My original thought after finishing this book is that Malfi is one of the best horror authors out there, partly because of how he is able to creatively expand the limits of horror, but really, “horror” doesn’t feel like an adequate qualifier for his work. I feel others […]

Right from the first chapter we see how well he can make us care for characters in their common, yet individualized struggles. There is some hard to swallow incest moments, but even in that he’s showing us how far […]
