    1. My review posted to : If you have read Scott Sherman's other books: "First You Fall" and "Second You Sin" then you know he is witty and has a wicked sense of humor. "The High Price of Pest Control" is a dark, sinister, funny, and most definitely twisted novella that has ratcheted up the wicked sense of humor so it is off the chart. The main character's live-in lover whose job was taking care of Krill's comforts has left him. The upscale apartment is in disarray and is beginning to show signs of [...]

    2. An overall strong short story from a clever author.The positives, I liked the pace of the story, it was quick and kept you turning pages. I liked the main character, I liked how he was his own man and didn't have to rationalize his decisions. I liked the Twilight-zone concept, I liked the flirting/sexy talk, I find Sherman's writing overall to be very relateable. I also felt the length of the book was good.The less good, the ending. The character was developing these plans and future uses, then [...]

    3. Ah man! I was about to give this one a 5-star rating butIt was funny. Creative. Clever. Witty. But I didn't understand the ending.

    4. I am totally giving this short, horrific, little masterpiece of a story 5 stars. It was creepy, gross, and funny. Dang, do I wish I had one of those cubes.lolI'd put it to good use.

    5. So far, I'm loving this story -- the supercilious, scheming protagonist (such a jerk, but such an amusing jerk); the deliciously creepy descriptions of the roach infestation and of the exterminator himself; the sense of impending . . . what? Doom? Justice? It's like something the great Rod Serling would've written had he been a 21st century gay man.I can't wait to get back to it.*Loved it to the end -- which, alas, came too abruptly. But it was perfectly appropriate.

    6. A creepy little urban horror story. Nice idea, nice build-up but the the conclusion doesn't make any sense to me. The general idea is kind of funny, but I didn't get to laugh while reading altough I enjoyed Mr. Shermans humour during the Kevin Connor series.

    7. Not really my kind of story. Felt very much like an episode of the Twilight Zone. The author did do an excellent job though of making me actually feel like there were roaches crawling on me! I will probably still try First You Fall.

    8. Krill was not a likable character, but he grew on me. Very engaging read, couldn't put it down, but sadly I didn't get the ending. Stupid me:)
