My Thoughts & Review
I was contacted by the publishers Stranger Books, asking if I would be interested in reading and reviewing this book. After reading the synopsis that they had sent, I knew it would be something that I would be interested in reading.
This book is a collection of seven short stories, my favourite of the 7 was Missing Persons.
I thought the writing and plot was really good, it was easy to read and follow. I found the stories to be mysterious and strange but at the same time disturbing, but I this was what made the book so interesting to me.
This was a really quick read for me as it is quite a short book , in fact it’s under 200 pages. Even though it’s short it will make you think which I wasn’t expecting it to do.
Overall a strange and interesting read, that I really enjoyed. I haven’t gone into too much details about this book because I didn’t want to give anything away, but I do highly recommend you try this book, especially if you’re looking for something different and unusual.
I would like to thank Strange Books for sending me a copy of this book in return for an honest and unbiased review.
