An Ugly Way to Go

I have always enjoyed short stories and this collection is no exception. There is something about being able to read a whole tale in that space of time before sleep claims you that is calming, it gives a sense of completion, if you like.

So, firstly the good – it’s tricky to know where to start because I don’t want to give a rundown of each story but there is a wide spread of different tales here so something to suit all. Although I found in my case that was pretty much everything. The writing was excellent throughout with each story being tight and to the point. There were some great twists as well as some reimaginings of old favourites such as in Once Upon a Crime and Christopher Robin Went Down – With Malice. While there were many stories here that I really liked if I started listing them out then I would never stop so I shall just give you my absolute favourite which was the piraty yarn, Rum Tale.

I should also mention that there is an excellent guest story included written by Chloe Banks, Missing Signs and Wonders, which is such a great idea and very enjoyably written.

And the bad? Well there’s not much of that actually. I’m not saying a loved every tale, there were a couple that didn’t light my candle as it were but that is purely personal taste and I certainly shan’t mark them out as there will be others who will love them.

I have often sung the praises of the short story for those times when you don’t have the capacity to sink into a longer piece and this is a collection that comes highly recommended.

I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review and this has not altered my opinion at all.
