Gnarled Bones and Other Stories - Tam May
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.
5 short (and I do mean SHORT, whole book is 40 odd pages, hour and ten minutes to read) stories that messed with my head.
This is by no means a negative review, not at all. It's just they didn't work for me. Someone else may well love them.
They are all well written, with no editing or spelling errors I spotted. They just, for me, didn't work. I read them all, and for all five books, I didn't get the point of the story. My immediate reaction when I finished was 'what did I just read???'
I'm sorry I didn't love them, because I like the way May tells their stories. I'd like to read a longer piece by this author.
Because I did read them all, and ONLY that reason...
3 stars.
