And, indeed, these stories are poems of captured insights during inner storms. Each story, if allowed to, takes us to a place where inner voices speak, heard above the gale. Be prepared to listen as he blends voices with narratives to reveal unintentional truths which break the boundaries of reason.
Fennell has put together well-crafted stories with style and substance that are intense with emotions and will affect readers in different ways depending on their own interpretations and reactions to the characters’ behaviors. Fennell fuses imagination and reality together in a way that is thought-provoking and will resonate with readers. The narrative is captivating, and the structure and the format of the writing fit in perfectly with these heartrending stories that not only will fascinate and, in some instances, leave readers feeling unsettled but also will appeal to their raw emotions. The combination of characters and their aura has more bearing on each story than time and place. The lack of quotation marks and dialogue tags is not confusing to readers nor does it detract from a memorable reading experience. This emotionally appealing book is overall a great read and one well worth reading due to Fennell’s skillful handling of the poignant and grim subject matter in clear, economical, and precise prose.
Each story in this volume is its own complete world, with characters, setting, and themes of its own. Some of the themes deal with difficult subject matter, but all are very worth reading. Take your time as you work through the stories....allow yourself to think about what you're reading....there's a lot here that's worth pondering after you finish each story.
I always enjoy reading a good short story....and I LOVED this book, since it provided so many of them. I'll be re-reading the whole book at some point, but I've marked my favorites to revisit more often.
This was a fantastic short story collection. The author has a superb way with words that is both poetic and thought-provoking. Each story is written in a way that allows the reader to interpret and feel their own emotions about the narrative rather than a straightforward story with a beginning, middle, and end.
One story in particular that I enjoyed as a paranormal and magick enthusiast is The Witch in the Woods, which plays on childhood fears and storytelling and the concept of bravery in the face of that fear. The elements involving the “witch” were great to see and the story ends on a shocking note, but the grander concept of false narratives blinding us to the truth and how stories can grow and take on a life of their own really resonated with me. The author’s expert use of imagery and character growth in such a short span of time really added to the thoughtful nature of each story being told.
Overall, this was a must-read collection. The author’s work is profoundly impactful and really draws the reader in. Each story has something for every kind of reader, and the author’s writing really is creative and emotionally powerful in its delivery, making this a one of a kind read that cannot be missed.

This book takes a reader on a journey, unlike anything the reader ever chose. Visceral and raw. Abstract and compelling. This book is simply Douglas Adams but written for small-town America. This is a Hitchhiker’s guide to small-town America. This isn't a small-town you might be familiar with or heard in songs. This is hardscrabble life. This is life on the outskirts of survival. This is the mean streets when the streets are dirt roads. Torrents of Our Time reads like the proverbial car wreck you can't stop looking at.
Interpretative in the way that each story can mean something different to every reader. Harsh realism brought forth by a very creative pen. An illustrative journey through the darker recesses of the human mind. A continued journey through the darker recesses of the human soul. A book like no other that could appeal to anyone.
