Glimpses – 28 short stories that will take you on a roller-coaster of a ride full of twists and turns. Dare you jump aboard and take a ride to the other side of life?
The book has some great reviews, two of which I am highlighting below.
‘A truly wonderful selection of short stories, an odd and eclectic range of topics and styles, but all of high-quality writing and editing. The author mentions several times how he suffers from dyslexia and I would never have known.
Besides that issue, the stories take you away into different lives, from a ghost encounter to complex marital issues (which seem to span a few stories, so interconnectivity adds to the interest) to the central and longest story “The Truth App.”, a personal favourite of mine, along with the wedding stories.
Glimpses is an apt title, for these stories are not just glimpses into the characters but also into the mind of the author. Despite the change of genres and locations, there seems an underlying warmth and poetic perception of the world, sometimes more worldly than at other times, but always reflective and thoughtful. I’m not a big fan of short stories and prefer to get into lengthier literature so I can really get into the characters. Glimpses achieved in many a short story an engagement and connection between me and the characters that novels didn’t achieve.
Quite an achievement and a very enjoyable and touching selection.’ – Wilma Lettings – Amazon Review
‘A compelling set of tales that take you from warmed cockles to frozen hopes via laugh out loud funny through the frankly bizarre and back again. The truth app is a stunning story but it would be invidious to single out just one in what is a fine first collection.’ – glp – Amazon Review
Don’t just take my word for it. Have a look at all the other reviews over on Amazon.
