Hello, book pandas 🐼
I’m sorry I’m so slow at writing the reviews. I had a lot of obstacles at the beginning of the month, and to confess, I just a little dare to write and read. Last week I barely got to see the new episodes of Game of Thrones. The new ones! That’s from monday to monday. I’m addicted to one drama that I’ll probably tell you more about in the end of the month and on top of that BigHit won’t stop playing with my heart daily. (I know that you have no idea what i’m talking about, don’t worry, it’s better this way) But enough about that. It’s time to talk about books.
The book arrived with a small poster and two badges.The poster is in a prominent place, and I wear the badge with the top hat with pleasure. onestly, I like the design too much. And for a person who doesn’t get and win books often, the Congratulations!” Is very nice to read.
20 mind-expanding short stories.
Inspiring, liberating, otherworldly, magical, surreal, bizzarre, funny, disturbing, unique…
All of these words have been used to describe the stories of Mike Russell so put on your tophat, open your third eye and enjoy: Nothing is strange.
I do not know what the original annotation is and if there is one. I have copied this from the back cover of a book because I think it can’t be better summarized.
“Everything that is not a thing is a thing in The Warehouse.”
To be honest, I liked not all stories (which is only normal), but the most of them were good. Eight of them are my favorite and one I didn’t understand but that’s not so important.
Stories are really weird and unusual. Actually, I’m sad I don’t know better words to describe them. Some of them leave you confused, other sad and feeling sympathy. The style is simple, unlike the stories themselves. Fast and easy to read, but leaving strong feelings. To give a valuable opinion on a collection of stories, especially as the stories are short, it is very difficult for me. I can not see what I’m looking for and what I run to the author, but I would definitely give him a chance with some other book. I gave this one 5 stars after all.
Dunce is one of my favorite stories. It is strange but also pleasant. If I say what the story is about, I will reveal the whole story, and I do not want that. But you can find out by reading it on the publisher’s and the author’s website- https://strangebooks.com/
“I think we cry because we don’t understand what is going on. Maybe if we understood what is really going on we wouldn’t cry at all, ever.”
In one of the other stories, Mike shows us a different view of what love is. (And I like it because I find some strange logic)
“Between then, on the bed, is their love. It is beautiful, colourful, soft in places, hard in others, glowing, pulsating, tentacles waving, petals and wings opening. They touch it, feeling its cavities and protrusions. A perfume emanates from it, both strange and intoxicating. It makes a sound like music. They cuddle it and stroke it and fondle it and kiss it.”
And as we talked about love, The Meeting is a strange and unusual love story, which made me feel impressed.
I generally bow to the author. The stories came to me in a strange and unusual way. Ideas are so unusual and can be interpreted in many different ways, and what better than going into the world of theories and mysteries?
(Of course, the book goes with a signature from the author^^)
