    "GROUND, by Joel Krupa" Here is my unbiased review of a horror novel that I wrote. Keep in mind that I am very critical of my work, and this review will not sugar coat any shortfalls I feel I may have had in the writing. First, I loved the concept. While at times I'm told it bears similarities to popular movies like Soylent Green and Sweeney Todd, the story development and character selection is where it all ends. From the sick ways of the Prison Administration to the physical violence at the hands of our hero, this is NOT your average book. That said, the book gets right into the action from the get-go and can, at times, leave you breathless and hungry for more. I'll be honest with you. I like my violence brutal and my gore chunky. This is by far my best piece of work as a short story. I have personally bought countless copies and have never been told by the recipient that they were unhappy with the content. It follows Vincent, a brand new prison guard with a heavy... More > heart. He's been learning the ropes at this new Texas facility and trying to stay up to speed. He finds out something TERRIBLE is going on, and vows to change his ways to stop it. Throughout a very intense journey, we learn a lot about our hero. Too much? Too little? You be the judge. Original Story: 8/10. Again, similar to popular content. Violence: 8/10. Detailed, and very gory. Entertainment: 10/10. Have not heard a single complaint. Replay Value: 9/10. Suspense once is not suspense twice. Overall Score: A Nine out of ten. If you buy this book and are unhappy with the content, you will be one of the first. Be advised that this has a lot of adult content, situations, and language in it. Viewer discretion IS ADVISED. Mature, 18+ readership.< Less
