This reader enjoyed it!
This collection of short stories was a lovely surprise. I wasn’t drawn by the cover, serendipity led me to download it. I took a quick look at the first short story, as I usually do, to get an idea of the writing style. I read the first page, and continued on. The writing is wonderful– I mean really good! It flows effortlessly. Each short story is very different, the approach, narrative, and cadence of the passages too. I thought they all worked equally well. Among my favourites: the delightfully surreal ‘The Adventures of Freddie the Moth’, the very funny ‘The Waster’s Tale’, and the beautifully chilling ‘The Tell-Tale Trunk’. – Georgina Anne Taylor
