This is such a decadent book of short stories. They make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
I’m really into short stories lately – I’m rather enthralled that they provide these tiny insights of a character’s most precious thoughts, only to leave us readers behind as quickly as we’ve become involved! The characters leave behind so many unanswered questions, just mimicking the people who walk in and out of our lives every single day. If the world followed my wishes, I would be able to learn all the dreams, fears, and basic routines of everyone I’ve ever met. I’m kind of voyeuristic in that sense (not in the sexual way clearly…), as I want to be able to peer into people’s personal lives and learn as much as I can about this human species.
I don’t think that I’m the only one that thinks like this, or people wouldn’t be writing such stories.
Short stories are also perfect for those of us with short attention spans! We don’t have to remember the characters for more than the few pages involved. I’ve had difficulty reading books with all this Fibromyalgia brain fog, although I’m doing a little better now. I have another great book recommendation for next week unless another piece of pop culture creeps in and becomes something I cherish even more!
