"A compilation of supernatural-themed short stories. "
That's what the summary can tell you, but it omits- well, now that's the hard part to describe. Each of these stories leaves you with a strange, stirring set of feelings, ranging anywhere from a queer, nostalgic sadness to fear to cheeriness to a (in any way) disturbed state of mind.
These stories are marvelously short, and you can read through them quite quickly, in the span of a short evening.
And I'm quite certain that anyone will find something here that will resonate specifically with them in terms of mood and themes.
In all honesty, I might've offered up 'fantasy' as a better word than 'supernatural', but then again, not all the stories would fit that genre either. These short stories are like fables, or the kind of story you tell in the dark of the night, having a sleepover with friends.
Of course, being so short, rarely are the characters in each actually draw out vividly. What's foremost important is the story and atmosphere created. Some are light, some dark, some heavy. It's all slightly psychological with a taste of mystery, and there's no way for boredom to set in with the compelling story.
The art is perhaps unique, but generally very pleasing, not all the way to awkward and just on this side of enjoyable. Personally I loved it, as it suited my tastes, and it was actually the art on the cover that pushed this compilation before me. It matches the slightly dreamy feel of this work extraordinarily.
Enjoyment? Delightful. Very quick to read through, provoking either thoughts or emotions, with a good mood, very interesting storyline and very diverse spectrum of themes, and if anyone is has a fondness for either supernatural, fantasy, psychological, mystery, or even horror, I strongly recommend to give this series a look, as it won't devour a lot of time and is sure to strike a cord somewhere. read more
