8th Shot of Shock: The Return by Fernando Sorrentino

I read  The Return by Fernando Sorrentino (Translated by Thomas C. Meehan) as part of the 31 Shots of Shock.Every day of the month of October, I will be posting review of one horror short Story! This challenge is hosted by Rob @RobAroundBooks. You can join any day you want.

In The Return by Fernando Sorrentino, a 23 year old man is the only witness to an accidental killing and all the bizarre series of events that follow in the period of 13 years after that.

It read more as a thriller than horror. It is written well, so as to keep the reader interested in the mystery and it is devoid of all the unwanted description, that really are tiring to read, to say the least.

Read it online.

  1. Wonderful site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any forums that
    cover the same topics talked about in this article?

    I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get responses from other
    experienced people that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Kudos!

  2. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me
    to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out
    a designer to create your theme? Great work!

  3. I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also
    with the layout on your weblog. Is this
    a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way
    keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one today.

  4. I think everything composed was very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you wrote a catchier post title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added something that makes people desire
    more? I mean 8th Shot of Shock: The Return by Fernando Sorrentino is a little vanilla.
    You could look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create
    news titles to get people to open the links. You might try adding
    a video or a pic or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more
    interesting.

  5. Excellent blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any recommendations? Many thanks!

  6. each time i used to read smaller articles or reviews
    which also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing
    which I am reading here.

  7. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the
    hang of it!

  8. Hi! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post
    reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept talking
    about this. I will forward this article to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

  9. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had
    to ask!

  10. Nice post. I used to be checking constantly this weblog and I’m inspired!
    Extremely helpful information particularly the ultimate part 🙂 I deal with such info much.
    I was seeking this certain info for a long time.

    Thanks and best of luck.

  11. I am really inspired along with your writing skills as neatly as with
    the layout for your weblog. Is that this a paid subject or did you modify it
    yourself? Either way keep up the nice high quality writing, it’s rare
    to see a nice weblog like this one today..

  12. Thanks for ones marvelous posting! I really enjoyed reading
    it, you happen to be a great author.I will make sure to bookmark your blog and will eventually come back later in life.
    I want to encourage one to continue your great writing, have a nice evening!

  13. Heya i’m for the first time here. I came across this board and I find It
    really useful & it helped me out much. I hope to give something back and aid
    others like you helped me.

  14. Admiring the time and effort you put into
    your blog and in depth information you offer. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of
    date rehashed information. Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including
    your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  15. Unquestionably believe that which you stated.

    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be
    aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they
    plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the
    nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having
    side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks

  16. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this
    website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?

    has pretty much the same page layout and design. Outstanding
    choice of colors!

  20. You could definitely see your enthusiasm within the work you write.
    The sector hopes for even more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe.
    Always follow your heart.

  21. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring
    blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  22. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
    to your new updates.
