Joanne Harris' short story writing never fails to disappoint. This collection is full of thought-provoking, engaging, reflective, heart-breaking and amusing stories that introduce new characters and bring back some of (my) favourites from Harris' previous writing. An excellent collection.
If you need a break from long novels, here are 16 great stories for when you just want to listen to something engaging, but short. The narration by Joanne Harris and Thomas Judd is an absolute pleasure. Very easy on the ears. Judd sounds a bit like Neil Gaiman.
Not all the stories are wonderful, but all are interesting, and make you think. Also they don't all wrap up at the end with satisfactory answers- kind of like real life. There is a netherworld feeling to some of them, and definitely some are actual ghost stories.
Some of my favorites were River Song, Would You Like to Reconnect?, Faith and Hope Fly South, and the story about Maggie who has an eating problem.
I've been disappointed with some short story offerings in the past- but I am happy to say that is not the case here. Well worth a credit.
