5.0 out of 5 stars Short stories are an ART FORM!, June 25, 2012
This review is from: Mystery Writers of America Presents Vengeance (Hardcover)
This is a collection of short stories all focused on the theme of Vengeance. Twenty one original authors (including the editor, Lee Child) wrote stories for this anthology and filled it with original short stories that really grab you and give you a reason to read. I am really envious of authors that can give you a gift of story in such short form and still include every nuance necessary to answer all the questions that might come up about the justification for the actions in the story. The form is a miracle in thrift! Another miracle is that Lee Child was able to persuade this great stable of authors to contribute to this book. I was amazed by the range of possibilities for revenge that were explored by these authors. It is also amazing that a stable of stories based on a single theme would cover such a wide variety of plots and actions looking for emotional satisfaction. I was further impressed that "ALL" of these stories were universally engaging and so well written and original that they easily maintained my interest to the point that I would read two or three stories at a single sitting instead of just picking and choosing the few with interesting titles. Not a single entry disappointed me! Easily one of the best short story anthologies of resent history. Kudo's to Mr. Child and his cooperating authors!
