5-28-2024 Besonen Breakdowns

Today's first breakdown is for the audiobook of "To Stare Death In The Eyes" by Eric Butler:

Out of the few stories I've read by his author so far, I think this one definitely seemed the most original and showed off his potential the best. Having not read many Horror Westerns, hard for me to compare it against the subegnre it falls under but I thought it was pretty good. I liked the dark and cosmic feel this one had, so much so that I would say this is my favorite by him to date that I have read personally.

The audio portion was narrated by Micah Cottingham who I think is a good fit for Eric Butler's stories and the folky nature that I feel they have.

4/5 stars.





Second breakdown of the day is for the audiobook of "Kiss Me Where It Smells Funny" by Eric Butler:

Strong start to the story, but as it went on the plot seemed thin and it derailed for me. I think it had the potential to be a lot better, maybe an expanded version or something would make it work? I think this one required a revisit and some explanations... it ended and I just shrugged it off and thought, that was it? I think Eric writes a good tale, but this one was mediocre to me personally. I felt the story had no point and was full of unanswered plot holes.

The audio portion of this one was narrated by Micah Cottingham who did a good job with the telling. Honestly, her narration kept me engaged with this one because it gave me a campfire story being told feel, I felt she saved it enough for me to finish it, along with Butler's tasty descriptors of violence.

3/5 stars.
