A well-crafted, entertaining collection - highly recommended.
My favorite is Unintended Consequences. Melanie loves her daughter with all of her heart. Her actions to protect her child lead to unintended consequences.
"The solid slam of the steel door convinced me that, until that moment, I had under-appreciated the concept of liberty. My expectation of an abysmal future was reinforced by the clunk of locks engaged behind me. Even if I could flee captors who flanked me on the walk to my cell, there was no exit from this hell hole. I had arrived at my new home as a consequence for my actions, yet wondered if my fate was truly justice."
The stories offer different perspectives on life and death, awake and dreaming, and right and wrong. The collection reflects the best work of well-known author Karen Black. Long Stories Short: A collection of short stories will warm your heart, stir your emotions, and entertain you.
“Long Stories Short” is a collection of ten short stories written by this author, of which, “The Hunted” is one of them, none of the other stories disappointed me.
To paraphrase what I said in my review for “The Hunted”:
As you read her stories you’re immediately sucked into each one. Ms. Black through her writing skills is able in each to create a mental picture of what’s happening; all the sights, smells, and dialogue. All of the stories have the ability, if it’s done right, to be expanded into a novella. In all of the short stories in the book Ms. Black succeeds in giving her readers an unexpected surprise twist at the end of each one, which definitely adds to the enjoyment of reading each one.
I’m therefore not hesitating in giving this book 5 STARS.
