    1. SLEEP DEPRIVED, by Dawn Cano was a story that took me by complete surprise. I was informed that this was her debut, yet the voice of her main character was so "strong" and consistent! If this is the case, then I am very excited to see what she comes up with next.As a short story, I can't say much about the content without giving everything away. What I will say is that she begins with a KILLER first line, and follows through with a tale you can not tear yourself away from until the very last--al [...]

    2. Dawn Cano's Sleep Deprived is a great freshman effort into the realm of the macabre. The nightmare that unfolds within these pages is no surprise, but is just horrific - the reader will find a very disturbing tale within. Dawn attacks the story with the vicious, calculated skills of a writer who has been at the craft for years. I hear rumors of a second story in the works and I can't wait to read it. Dawn Cano is a writer to watch.

    3. Sleep Deprived is a bizarrely disturbing horror with a hint of very dark humour. Do not read this if you’re squeamish or easily offended by horrific scenes. This is about a babysitter who goes to very extreme lengths to ease her insomnia. Two things this short story left me feeling grateful for was that I had my Christmas dinner before reading this, and that despite having suffered with severe insomnia for many years, it’s not quite had the same impact on me as it did the character in this s [...]

    4. Pass the salt, please dearA nasty, nasty little short story from Dawn Cano. I don't really know what to say other than.ocking. Cano pulls you in straight away-with the first couple of sentences the head shaking begins ( oh please, no! You cannot be serious?!) Gruesome, grizzly reading. Very few horror reads shock nowadays. I have read Edward Lee, Wrath James White and a lot more besides. This was shocking.

    5. I do realize that sleep deprivation can make you do "crazy" things, but I still think this story was stupid and unrealistic andI didn't like it at all. It was a waste of money, in my opinion.

    6. Dawn Cano comes out wielding a carving knife with her debut story, Sleep Deprived. I wasn't sure what to expect, with this being her first, of hopefully many, tales to come. Told deliciously from a first person perspective, she puts us into the mind of one, you guessed it, sleep deprived forty-something youngish woman who helps and works as a babysitter for a younger couple and their sweet, adorable little baby. Despite the scant 22 page read, Dawn delves fully into the mind of a person who slow [...]

    7. Psychological horror is an understatement This story knocked my socks off, blew my mind, and ruined my appetite for life! All good things, don't misunderstand! Anna needs sleep! Ana shouldn't babysit! Dawn Cano is a fabulous writer who adds new meaning to extreme horror! Most definitely want to read more by Ms. Cano and most highly recommend to all fans of modern horror!!

    8. I know Dawn as a reviewer, so when she wrote a story of her own, I was very curious. She had me hooked from the very first line. It's a brilliant, horrifying story with a purity to it--a simple idea that is all the more powerful for being executed without a ton of bells and whistles.Some have called it "Extreme Horror," but to me, a lot of EH is gore for gore's sake, and that's not the case with Cano's novel. If she'd glossed over her subject matter, it wouldn't have had the same gravity.Both th [...]

    9. Stories don't come much nastier than this. But that said, it's not a simple case of shock horror for the sake of it. It does hammer home the very valid topic of mental illness, and the problems sleep deprivation can cause. It is extremely disturbing in several of the scenes, but i felt the story was extremely well written, and addressed the subject very seriously.

    10. Well-written short story, particularly for a debut. Would have easily given it five stars if there'd been a bit more meat (so to speak) to the character's mental state. I'm a sucker for a good breakdown."Sleep Deprived" serves as an excellent how-to for cooking babies (my favorite) nonetheless, and I'm eager to see what Dawn Cano will come up with next.

    11. Gut-wrenching, sick, sick, sick!!! Won't be having roast for at least a week, after reading this. Brilliant debut!

    12. Firstly, let me say what a creepy cover this is and considering this is a new author with a short story that’s a lot of effort to create a good first impression, which she certainly has done.What a fantastic opening line, talk about grab you by the throat and throw you around the room.For a debut short story this was brilliant. I felt I knew the loving couple and almost fell in love with baby Claire, with her gorgeous little character and intimate description of her birthmark. The narrator and [...]

    13. Where do I start? A very shocking story with a plot that gets darker and darker with every sleepless moment Anna endures. Insomnia starting to take the mind from this poor girl,if only she could get some sleep. Even voices in her head start getting involved and things take a nasty turn for this babysitter who is asked to look after baby Claire againwhy didn't she just say no?! Tough to stomach in places but so well written and this is her debut!!

    14. All I can say is WOW!!!! This short story is definitely not for the faint of heart or people who have weak stomachs and small children. Not being able to sleep is something that affects most people at one time or another but total sleep depravity is a great health issue. This story gives us an horrific example of what the mind could possibly do. This is the first published story by newcomer Dawn Cano and I'm sure she will have many more for us to enjoy. Well Done

    15. Dawn sent this to me to hear my opinion before she released it and I was absolutely honoured. It blew me away. For a debut, it's absolutely excellent and there wasn't a single moment where I thought that something needed changing or editing. It's exactly the kind gem I love to find in an anthology and let's not forget that beautiful cover!!! I can't wait to see what she comes out with next! Don't keep me waiting too long!

    16. WowSuffering from sleep deprivation can be a scary thing. Dawn cano really takes it to a whole other level in this tale. Her sadistic and terrifying take on what can happen when sleep eludes you just goes to show that women can write horror just as well as any man. Can't wait to read more from this up and coming female author.

    17. A well-written short story. Cano clearly set out to get under the skin, to create something vicious and horrifying and grotesque. And she nailed it, totally. A hole in one! This is a strong entry into the extreme horror subgenre. Please, heed the warning on the cover. It’s there for a reason. And don’t let this keep you up at night. We’ve seen what sleep-deprivation can do to a person…

    18. Twisted Disturbingly chilling. I'm not quite sure how one could come up with thisnda creeped me out. Like driving by a horrific accident yet still slowing down to rubberneck. I'm a bit queasy.

    19. A terrific short storyThis is the 2nd short story I have read from this author. I enjoyed the first one and I enjoyed this one even more. Would highly recommend Dawn Cano's stories.

    20. Deliciously Depraved!!I can't tell you how much I love love love this nasty nugget of goodness!! Keep em coming Dawn!! I can't wait to read your next one!!If you like shock and awe, you will love this story!!

    21. the very first sentence should have been omitted before this book was published as it gave everything away. with that being said this is a greatly disturbing horror short worthy of the read. i would not recomend you to be eating anything while you read it though.

    22. This story is wonderfully shocking and really got into my head. I believe now that I may have a bit of trouble sleeping for the next week! Recommended for the folks out there who dig extreme horror. This gets the job done. I'm looking forward to more work from this author! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    23. Good job.For a new author this was a very good read. I enjoyed every minute. Keep writing so I can keep reading your stuff.

    24. A sleep-deprived teenager utilizes her culinary skills to alleviate the voices inside her head and the crying infant placed in her care.YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!.

    25. This is not a story for the faint of heart or the squeamish. The author warns you ahead of time, and if you proceed, then you are as much to blame as the woman who burned her own lap after driving out of the drive-thru with an open cup of coffee in her lapy more since the review is in big bold letters.I don't wince often, but this story had me trying to read faster to get past certain parts. I say that as a compliment. Honestly, I don't cringe easy when reading. For a first time effort, this is [...]

    26. " My eyes focused, but my mind totally blank." spot on description of being sleep-deprived.Anna spirals so quickly that it's almost unrealistic.unless you know the throes of being immensely sleep-deprived.My first time reading something by this author, and, now I must read more!!!! As the warning states, it is VERY disturbing, but, a quick, "oh my god" awesome story.The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because it was the slightest bit TOO fast-moving

    27. This book is a bit disturbing. My only complaint is I wish the author didn't give a spoiler in the very first sentence. I believe I would have been on edge even more if I didn't know what was going to happen. This short story was fairly good. The events leading up to the first sentence were just enough for me to continue to read through. This story has definitely magnified my fears of hallucinations and sleep deprivation.
