AS SEEN ON TV
By Cory Cline
A Five-Star Read!
Gus Grissom is newly divorced and ready to get into “killer” shape. The high-tech exercise machine he bought from one of those late night commercials promises to help, but Gus will learn what they mean when they say, “buyer beware”.
First, there is a lot more to this story than the synopsis tells us. A lot. So, hold on to your hat when you read this one. Hold onto something. Just, not an exercise machine.
Second, before the purists and complainers get their knickers in a twist, let me drop a couple of warnings: 1) Explicit content. It’s in there. It is part of the story. It’s not gratuitous, it is integral. 2) Graphic content. It is very much a horror story. 3) A couple of editing errors. People make mistakes. Get over it. Get past it. It doesn’t affect the story. This is a five-star read. Period.
Now, let us proceed. Chapter one is a brilliant set up for the story with a touch of ominous foreshadowing in the closing paragraphs. This story starts strong and progresses into a full-on gut-wrencher. The slow and continuous reveal of the main character and the exercise machine itself creates incredible tension that culminates in a delightfully horrific surprise ending. Again, it’s a five-star read.
Final warning: As Seen On TV is not far from being extreme horror. But if you dare, it’s a five-star read.
Did I mention it’s a five-star read?
