Review: The Monkey's Paw

Pages: 16
Genre: Short Story, Horror
Publisher: Duke Classics
Rating: 3 stars

Book Description: Brace yourself for nearly unbearable suspense in this classic horror tale from British author W.W. Jacobs. Virtually everyone has fantasized about what it would be like to be granted three wishes by a magical being. But what if the cost of having your dreams come true was a horrible toll you never expected? This iconic short story is a must-read for fans of the horror genre.

My Review: Short, but quite good. It tells of a man's wishes made upon the monkey's paw. The 'be careful what you wish for' maxim comes to mind. Though that in no way ruins the story. It doesn't even come close to revealing anything much. The ending was spine tingling. My kind of scary.
