Robert Kent – Pizza Delivery (A Short Story) [Read by David Radtke]

Pizza Delivery

Makes me glad I no longer deliver pizza

4 out of 5 stars

A college aged pizza deliveryman is making his typical deliveries.  Until one night he stumbles upon something that he shouldn’t have.  He tries to make his last delivery of the night but soon finds it may be his last delivery ever.

The narration was done by David Radtke.  I think the Radtke tried to change his voice to more meet the tone and dialogue of this short story.  There were times when I was trying to figure out why he was using the voice he used.  But others that it just seemed to fit.  Overall though his performance was good and made this book enjoyable to listen to.

I can’t write too much in the way of a review, just because the book was very short (77 pages/ just over an hour audiobook).  The story is dark and vulgar and is not for a younger audience.  The feeling I got throughout was that I feel like this will be made into a full length movie and drawn out more than it needs to be.  Robert Kent didn’t even need 100 pages to deliver a horrific tale.

Horror movie fans will really enjoy this; it has the typical feel of a horror movie without being overly cheesy in its depiction of the “bad guy.”  The main character, Brock, was a different type of person to follow through these events.

A quick listen for horror fans.  I don’t think this book will disappoint.

This review was originally written and posted to AudiobookReviewer.  I was given a free copy of the audiobook in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

bookdescription

From Robert Kent, author of ALL TOGETHER NOW: A ZOMBIE STORY, comes a new tale of terror. College student Brock Clouser is working a summer job delivering pizzas. During a run to the outskirts of Harrington, Indiana, he wrecks his car at an isolated country home. Though most everyone there has been violently murdered, he’s not alone.

WARNING
This is a novelette, not a full novel, and it’s mean and nasty and intended for a mature audience. It is absolutely not appropriate for younger readers. It’s a gruesome, repugnant tale featuring horrific acts of violence sure to warp young minds. Also, these particular characters speak in EXTREMELY COARSE language.

I’ve loved reading since I was little when my dad would read me Dr. Suess books. Fast-forward a little and I noticed that he was always reading on his lunch breaks at work, and I wondered why.Then, I found a book that took me to another place and time, to another feeling,another sense of “being”.It was the first book that I ever fell in love with, and I’ve been chasing that feeling ever since.
