Saturday's That Might Have Been is a short story that falls into the Fantasy genre; David Elliott lives in a small town in Illinois, he is more or less content with his life, but cannot help wondering if something might be missing.
One Saturday, walking around a neighbourhood that he knows well, David stumbles upon a shop - the building has always been there, but the shop itself seems to have appeared out of nowhere. Intrigued, David enters the shop to find that it stocks many books, magazines and comics from his childhood. Purchasing some chosen goods at ridiculously low prices, David returns home.
The next day, David returns to the shop, but it is nowhere to be seen - until the next Saturday when the shop owner welcomes David, but only David with open arms.
I came across this title by pure chance and despite not being a fan of this particular genre, I really enjoyed reading it. As this book is so short - around 5000 words - it is easy to get into, easy to digest and very enjoyable; it opens your eyes to the possibilities of what could be if you were to follow your heart as opposed to your head.
Reading this book will leave you with a warm feeling inside. It may make you question how you got from the child that you once were, to the adult that you are today, it may even make you wish you were still that child.
Well worth a read, at any point in the busy schedule we all call life; whether it be snuggled up in bed, or on a quiet Saturday afternoon.
