This collection of short fiction and poetry comes from Rave Reviews Book Club and showcases the talents of club members, many of whom are quickly gaining popularity among fans of indie-published works. Genres vary, offering something for every taste and preference. The talent levels shine.
Readers are treated to samples from some of the better indie authors in the market today. This mini library serves as an introduction to those writers who have also penned novels and poetry collections. If you're a fan of indie and you're looking for a new favorite, this is one of those books that should be on your shelf.
It is so enchanting because it is so diverse, and takes you from one captivating experience to another. Only at the Rave Review Book Club can one find such diversity. You get to know the contributing writers a litter better through the insights into the lives which they painted. There were not much abstraction in the stories. Authors were looking at, and showing us glimpses of their lives through their various eyes that it became a kaleidoscopic of colorful words painted in poetry, and prose.
I duff my hat to you wonderful Rave Review Book Club authors. And I look forward to the next edition of these collections. This is a really good read.
Many of the stories in the book seem to do a lot of telling rather than showing. Most aren't dialogue driven, or character driven but dictated. The narrators always seem to be looking back at their lives and telling the reader a story. This might be why a lot of the stories gave me a feeling of nostalgia. I could smell warm summer air and the fragrant scent of rhododendrons throughout much of the book. I could feel grainy classroom chalk on my fingers, feel the heavy stares of judgmental classmates, or a disapproving parent. The shame of being taken by force, abused and overcoming that over time. The authors took me back in time, and made me feel things I hadn't felt in some time.
Of course, as a lover of sci-fi and fantasy, I fully enjoyed that section of short stories toward the end.
I love reading other writers reflecting back on themselves; why they write, why they love it, can't help but pursue it. Maybe it makes me feel less alone. Either way, this is a book for writers and the people who love them. Beautiful, breathtaking, well put.
I for one found excellent texts even in genres I don’t ordinarily read such as ‘A mother’s hands’ and ‘The caliber’s of one’s character’ in poetry as well as poetic prose like ‘Sorrow and light’, to name only one. Others moved me to tears like ‘Sweetie girl, a story too close to home for me to read without sobbing once or twice. All right, I’ll be honest here – I cried like a baby. LOL
However, as it often happens with anthologies, there are texts which are not so brilliantly executed as the others or for some reason or other did not work for me and that’s why I cannot give the book a 5 stars rating.
