Review: UNREAL ENCOUNTERS by Milo James Fowler

This is a collection of short stories that make you question the scheme of things. These twisted tales are certainly full of dark irony and otherworldly elements. You don’t always get them. At times, you reach the ending and go “huh?” 

Stories are described as “Twilight Zone-ish,” which is blatantly obvious once you start reading. They’re bound by confusion, mystery, and illusion. You don’t know where you are and you’re out in the middle of nowhere; then you’re taken on a trippy ride and you don’t know how you ended up there. It’s kind of weird, but you appreciate the dark setting and are strangely allured by it.

Some stories were certainly better than others.  Like I said, some I didn’t get at all. The words I’d use to describe them would be: weird, dreary, and unreal.


My rating: 3 stars
