    Hungry Ghosts has been a unique horror anthology with a total of eight stories centered on food. There is a small thread connecting each one that comes back in a big and satisfying way in the very end. Writers Anthony Bourdain and Joel Rose have crafted some horrifying stuff here. Due to the way it's set up, it can easily be replicated to tell more tales in this nature. I'd love to see more. I guess I should say that I want seconds, huh? Read Full Review

    A grand finale of butchery and blood awaits the reader. Hungry Ghosts comes to a close, tying together a collection of satisfying late-night tales from America's favorite snarky globetrotting scribe. Fans of folktales and food writing alike will surely enjoy these books, as they bring something a little out of the ordinary to the table. Read Full Review

    Like much of the series, it reads like an afterthought with more potential than can be found in the final production. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jonathan Edwards May 9, 2018

    In conclusion, Hungry Ghosts is ultimately little more than one big missed opportunity of a book. The idea of a horror anthology book about a group of people playing Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai is still great, but this is not the way to do it. Read Full Review
