The Nurturing by R.J. Benetti
Dark and disturbing
Dark and creepy!!
Benetti shows his talent for writing in different styles in this brilliant short story! This was a dark, creepy, terrifying tale of racism, ghosts, and a child 'nurtured' in a very unique way. The consequences of which are shocking and savage! This was such a great and different concept, and a nice change from Benetti's usual crazy/bizarre (and totally awesome!) tales! The story develops from a chillingly creepy beginning, that'll have you wondering just who you are really living with, to a shocking, bloody and brutal end! Fantastic stuff once again!! Absolutely 5/5 creepy ghosts
When the supernatural meets social commentary
R.J is fast becoming a literary superstar and it’s easy to see why. His latest story eschews bizarro humour in favour of something far deeper and affecting. There’s still an element of the uncanny about this piece but it’s framed by a narrative which tackles all too familiar themes of racism and bigotry. The ending alone is worth the price of the book, but everything leading up to the shocking conclusion will have you gripped by the throat.
