Sweet, Sweet Stories, Some Sweeter than Others Paperback – September 1, 2017
- Book Review
Sweet, Sweet Stories, Some Sweeter than Others by Daniel Curzon is an eclectic anthology of short stories, where some are not actually 'sweet,' despite the title. Suffer the Little Children starts the collection, a story about a kind-hearted couple who are unable to bear children. They decided to adopt a young boy from Romania, despite the husband's father's furious disagreement, warning his son that it will only cause trouble. As the boy arrives, the couple is happy and determined to love him unconditionally, until the ominous warning from the husband's old man seems to haunt the family. I was able to somewhat predict the outcome, but not the provided moral of the story by Curzon. It's tragically hilarious as I didn't see it coming at all.
The form and style of this perfectly original anthology reveal an intelligent, dark humor and a highly engaging, quirky narrative. Sweet, Sweet Stories, Some Sweeter than Others plays with and explores all kinds of human emotions and the oddities that are both loved and hated in today's societies. If you feel alone, as if there's a great disparity between you and other people, then you might want to read this book. Curzon reassures us that our assessment of the world doesn't have to be perfect. His anthology is enjoyable, thought-provoking, and it's up to readers to decide the genre for each story. All in all, this is a commendable work from Curzon and I highly recommend it to my fellow readers.
