A wonderfully crafted debut!
Hunger Pangs Review Hunger Pangs is not just an original debut horror anthology, or a writers first attempt at connecting with a wider audience. These pages are the culmination of several years of dedication to the art of crafting a story, of creating characters, and of connecting with the reader in an intimate way. Each short delivers its own collection of neurosis and traumas, weather they be of a psychological nature, or emotional distress, in a way which leaves the reader with the weight of necessary introspection left squarely upon their shoulders. The subject of suffering due to loss is one of the most uncomfortably intimate, due not just to the variety, and expanse of its reach, but the inevitability it holds over us all. By it’s very nature, it removes crucial strands from the safety net intended to support those suffering its sting. The very person or thing that could act as a salve for ones distress, can often be the very reason for that distress. These darkest parts of the human psyche are unapologetically explored, both with fear, and sorrow, in the pages of Hunger Pangs; even leaving room for the redemption of monsters, and the nuance of circumstance. As an avid consumer of audio books, I would like to take a moment to congratulate the narrator, Savy Des-Etages. Her reading of, and dedication to the writing, makes this listen as engaging and entertaining as any other audio entertainment I’ve heard. I could not envision a more perfect fit for the characters enshrined in these pages. As one of the privileged close friends of Scott J. Moses, I have seen with my eyes the work and dedication this collection has received over the years. The hyperbolic blood sweat and tears the author has poured from his personal life, and his creative mind have paid off. And as a first time reader of the finished product, the taste of iron and salt is potent in every page. A passionately written book, for passionate readers.
