This book is a quick read with interesting stories that shows promising imagery for future works from the author. I enjoyed The Medusa Virus the most.

Format: Paperback
Kimberly Bennett has an amazing collection of ten short stories in her Twisted Delights collection. A good short story puts the reader in the moment and gets to the point. Kimberly has a way with words that quickly allows you to feel what the characters are feeling and that is a feat not all authors can accomplish. I look forward to more works from this author.

By Zmortis on April 25, 2011
Format: Paperback
Some of the strengths of Kimberly Bennett's "Twisted Delights" are the imaginative twists her stories undertake using some classical mythological figures. From mermaids to medusa we see several sketches of empowered female characters. If there is a weakness here though, it is in the frequent use of an ambiguous unnamed first person narrator in several of these tales. The narrator becomes the reader in a sense as in many of these stories they have no unique identity. The best of these stories are when there is actual dialog and interaction between the characters as I'm a fan of good dialog over strait narrative exposition. I also like it when the narrator becomes involved in the story instead of just a witness to the events.

Most of these stories aptly fit the definition of short. The word counts are low, and the scene transitions rare. Kimberly is dropping the reader right into the heart of events to watch them play out without much in the way of lead up or denouement. As such the stories read like a series of brief climaxes. Too quickly over perhaps, but soon to be followed by another.

If I have one major complaint it is that the book comes in at a scant 72 pages for $13. I know this is more the publisher (lulu) than the author at work, but as a reader (and fellow author) I think the price is not commensurate with the length of the work. I'm looking forward to more from Kimberly in the future, and I hope to find 250+ pages in the $10 range for her next work.
