    1. From Flying With Red Haircrow, review and interview site:When you watch those made-for-TV films on certain science fiction channels, you know before reading 'directed by' there are going to be the usual stereotypes. Among others, you might find that all Southerners are rednecks or hillbillies with heavy accents or law enforcement officers are inept and don't know how to properly contain a crime scene. There will always be the bloody splash of'shocker' scenes, people who never ever mind their own [...]

    2. Review provided by Black Lagoon Reviews:If ever there could be a horror story considered as a cozy horror, then Monster Story by McCarty Griffin is it. With a wonderful appeal that matches the campy flair of the SyFy channel's original movies, this book has a back country redneck atmosphere that was at times priceless and at others, extremely visceral. Mixed with some truly humorous characters, this is a light read that still manages to deliver all the graphic horror one could expect!The atmosph [...]

    3. 4.5 stars = MUST READIt all starts with Christine returning to her small West Virginia hometown. Her grandmother had died of a heart attack. She doesn't exactly have a Hallmark relationship with her mother, but Christine's inheritance keeps her there -- at least, until she sorts things out. In the meantime, a series of grisly deaths have occurred. Is it a monster? Werewolf? Serial killer? You're just going to have to read it yourself to know. This was a pulse-pounding fear ride that I absolutely [...]

    4. AwesomeAbout a man who committed suicide leaving his wife behind after he realized he was the monster who attacked killed his son and friends.

    5. I was so psyched to read this book because I can't tell you how long it's been since I've read a thriller. It's been too long, but luckily this book came along to scare the crap out of me. In it we meet Christy, who moves back to West Virginia after inheriting her grandmother's cabin. At first there are some reports of wild animal attacks which set her and the rest of the town on edge. Then it becomes clear that no animal could rip a person limb from limb. In order to stop the killings, Christy [...]

    6. Monster Story is the third book that I have had the pleasure of reading for an honest review by author McCarty Griffin . The book is also the one I left for last because it is a horror suspense and not a book I would normally read However I stepped out of my little box and accepted the challenge of being shocked, horrified, grossed out and pleasantly entertained as well!The book has a lot of graphic descriptions that are not for anyone with a squeamish stomach, it also tells a very gripping tale [...]

    7. "Monster Story" by McCarty Griffin is a rather enjoyable horror suspense novel. This type of story is something I rarely pick up these days even though in my youth this genre was almost all I read. This novel like many I read in my youth was light and easy read which I felt really captured the feel of many made for TV early evening horror movies.The story follows a young woman named Christy who has travelled back to her hillbilly hometown in West Virginia due to the death of her Grandmother. Unf [...]

    9. I don't typically read horror stories but I thought I would give Monster Story a try, I am truly glad I did. While Monster Story isn't exactly my type of book, I was drawn into the story and became invested in the character's outcome.Christy is a young woman who has escaped the rural aspect of her home town only to be dropped back in the middle of a true nightmare.Graemeis Christy's "city-boy" friend. He proves to be a true friend and stands by her side through badd well, worse. Living in the ci [...]

    10. I. Love. Werewolves. And not just the sexy ones that hail from Urban Fantasy (although I’m even more fond of those than UF Vampires). Oh No. I love the ones that go bump in the night for blood and unchecked rage. So I was only too eager to dive right into McCarty Griffin’s Monster Story.I made the mistake of reading a few pages one night when I couldn’t sleep and only ended up giving myself the wiggins. (“Wiggins?” Who the fuck says “Wiggin’s” anymore SJ?” Sorry, been watching [...]

    11. Originally posted at Butterfly-o-Meter Books on Jul 30 2011:Yummy, yummy horror story. I hadn’t realized how much I did miss horror stories until I read McCarty Griffin`s writing. Rich, descriptive, suggestive, McCarty Griffin`s world sweeps you off your feet, and you find yourself right there, in the middle of that forest, waiting for the non-romanticized monster to feed on you, instead of romancing you (the more popular outcome of meeting a were-thing). Don’t get me wrong, I love it when t [...]

    12. Set in rural West Virginia, Monster Story is definately what the title tells you, a true monster story. The action starts from almost the very beginning and doesn't let up. Fairly early on, the reader knows what, if not who, the monster is, but that realization is almost secondary because, at heart, the monster is what the title says, a monster. Plain and simple. But without giving that plot point away, the monster is created to be something very different than those in most fiction, which was a [...]

    13. Synopsis from the authors site mccartygriffinbooksonlineChristy McCauley has returned home to a surreal nightmare. In the deep hollows of rural Augusta County, something unspeakable is slaughtering people in the night. Authorities don't know if its human or animal, or how to stop it. Christy and her friends only know they must hunt it and destroy it, before it kills again. As you may have picked up from the synopsis Christy McCauley is our main character, returning home from the big city to the [...]

    14. I read a fellow reviewer’s review on this book just to weigh our opinions against one another, and then I read another and another and then with my opinion, I think I can safely report that everyone agrees that this book should be considered a “cozy” horror story that has a sort of backwoods redneck horror atmosphere. You know the scene, someone is dead, a bunch of characters go “hunting” in the scary, dark woods. Some live, some die, some meet the monster that goes bump in the night. [...]

    15. I did enjoy this book. Unfortunately when I was in the first page of the book, I found it difficult to get what the author try to say. The word choice that I got in the first few pages were difficult enough. Actually this book was written well. it described thing in a nice way. Let's blame it to my limited vocabulary. I was little bit afraid that I was not able to read till the last page. But I did not know why I just could not leave it. I started to focus when the story brought me to the first [...]

    16. Coming home for her grandmother’s funeral was something Christy MacCauley really didn’t want to do. She’d left a few years ago never intending to return. However, her gramma had been a good influence in Christy’s life and she felt she needed to say good-bye. She didn’t expect Gramma to leave her cabin, bank accounts and 30 acres of land to her! Her father wasn’t too thrilled as the land way ‘way to hell and gone out of town, all by its lonesome.At the same time, hunters are being b [...]

    17. MY REVIEW: ******contains spoilers********I must admit, I am not a huge fan of horror stories. This book sounded interesting therefore I thought I would try it. I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed this book. Some of the more grisly descriptions of ripped up body parts had me closing my eyes and shuddering, however, overall, a great story. I loved the way the author told part of the story from the viewpoint of the monster. I've seen this in other books but not done as well as here. A nice change in [...]

    18. Christy McCauley has returned to West Virginia at last, but her homecoming quickly turns into a surreal nightmare. In the deep hollows and woods of rural Augusta County, something unspeakable is slaughtering people in the dark of night. Authorities don't know if its human or animal, or how to stop it. Christy and her friends only know they must hunt it and destroy it, before it kills again.My Review:The action starts pretty much from the beginning of the book and continues all the way through. C [...]

    19. This was a scary good book. There is lots of tension before we find out that the monster is. It continues during the hunt, and comes to a satisfying conclusion.The action may be fast and furious, but it was the characters that made the book. All of them had both strong and weak moments which were very believable. When weak they had doubts and fears that I would imagine anyone facing their situation would have. When strong they were full of resolve and steel and seemed ready to take on the world [...]

    20. I don’t usually enjoy reading vampire or werewolf story, but this book is probably an exception. I didn’t feel like being thrown into the world of some gloomy teenagers who are helplessly head-over-heel with a vampire because the characters are mostly adult. On top of that, the story isn’t entirely focusing on sappy romance; rather it’s about adventure and adventure only. This is book is definitely a must-read, recommended to adult readers who enjoy a much mature paranormal-themed story. [...]

    21. Unfortunately, while there are parts of the book that i really liked (like the attacks.ey were so creepy and i was really happy that wasn't night while i was reading) i can't seem to get into the book.As a result i can't go on with it. I can always force myself to finish it, but i believe it's a really good and it's just me that can't connect with it. It would it injustice if i was forced to read and then review it.

    22. Just another tale of werewolves and vampires to squeeze through the line. That is the thought that went through my head as I prepared to read this story. However I was pleasantly surprised to find myself wrapped up in the story and eagerly reading the pages of this book. Although it may be graphic, hence the warning, it is well worth the read. You will find yourself immersed in a richly told story with easy to follow characters.

    23. Book put me back to the earlier movies with Lon Chaney Jr. and his Wolfman. Pretty much followed the same storyline as that great old movie. Of course, the monster is uglier and more vicious than Larry Talbot, but the premise is still the same. I don't remember Larry Talbot having problems with the daylight, however. Does anybody remember?

    24. Thought it was a decent read for a Werewolf story. I think no matter how it would have ended, who ever reads it with think typical ending. So with that . . I think it ended OK. It could of left it open for a sequel though.
