I had previously purchased this on my Kindle but listened to the Audible version. Lawrence is from South Africa and I believe that the narrator is as well. Due to my hearing issues, I had to adjust to the narrator’s accent but I enjoyed the narration. She is clear and well spoken.
I enjoyed the communication via letter for father and daughter. I quickly figured out where dad was located. I enjoyed the letters as we saw Emily grow up. I wanted to know more about dad.
This one would be a living nightmare! I had to scratch and did throughout this one! I dare you to NOT scratch while reading this one. I still scratch thinking about this story!
The Unsuspecting Gold Digger
I did not see that ending coming! OMG….. That is all I can say.
This was my favorite of all the stories. It is a hidden gem. If you work with the public at all you will love this one! If only we could actually say what we think….
Another twist I did not see coming. There are so many emotions with this one. I thought it was going in one direction but it was a in reality a complete 180.
She Did It
Who is the victim and who is the suspect? What is going to happen next? Who is helping the detective?
I enjoyed this one was different as it dealt with magic and witches. I’m hoping this was an introduction of sorts to the novel of the same name that Lawrence has written.
This one freaked me out. Though I have never seen the movie The Birds, I kept thinking of it while listening to this one. I loved the ending!
The Little Pink Book
Being a midwife and helping to deliver babies should be a wonderful thing… shouldn’t it??? I wanted more to this story!!!
Off the Hinge
This one is a schizophrenic mess and that is the point. Can someone just get the lady some milk!?!?!
What happens when you have ‘sticky fingers’? Let’s hope it doesn’t end the way this short story did with that surprising ending!
A suicidal baby. He knows he is in the wrong family and wants to correct that error. This one won’t be for everyone, but it makes you wonder just how cognitive babies really are….
I find it hard to resist short stories. When I need a short respite from long mysteries, I read short stories; they refresh me. These are clever, well-written, evoke a reaction after finishing, and are thought-provoking, as well.
Ms.Lawrence sets a scene, paints the people with personality, and introduces a situation which may, or may not, be influenced by the main character.
I will not label these stories as happy or sad, dark or light, or any other contradictory terms; they just exist as they are. I believe, if any group of people sat down to discuss these stories, the single agreement would be this: each one views the stories through their own experience, which would result in many different points of view to explore among them. They are what YOU will make of them.
I gave this collection a rating of five stars for two reasons, the first being the excellence of the story arc of the plots themselves. The second is an acknowledgment to the writing which told the stories. Each story read smoothly, had good unobtrusive descriptions, and believable and apt conversation. I liked the format, illustrations, and appreciated the error-free text.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes short stories, whether as a steady diet, or as a treat, which they were to myself! Each one is outstanding on its' own; as a collection, they are stunning!
These stories range from the macabre to the flat-out hilarious. My favorite was “Off the Hinge.” I never realized it was so difficult to secure a pint of milk for your tea. Maybe that’s why I always take mine black. On the other hand, considering the narrator’s predicament, perhaps milk is the least of her worries.
If you like stories that disturb rather than horrify, then get this collection. Each one reminded me of a modern, well-made Twilight Zone episode featuring great actors. And if you’ve ever had a chance to catch the original television episodes, you’ll know I’m setting a high bar.
My recommendation would be to take a break between stories. That way, you can savor and fully appreciate each story before diving into the next one. (ahem) Not that I followed my own advise. I plowed through the whole book in a single sitting. What can I say? Just because I tend to gorge on a good thing doesn't mean you should.
Janita's writing is never predictable and her stories are so real, like they could happen to anybody we know!
Much love and joy experienced every time I read one of her books. Absoloutly fabulous! Highly recommend specially
to those that dont have much time to read a full book, these short stories will be just the ticket for those with limited
time on their hands!
Keep doing what you do best Janita! :)
