5.0 out of 5 stars Dot Dash – Delight, 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dot, Dash (Salt Modern Fiction) (Kindle Edition)
Dot Dash is one of those rare books that just can’t be faulted. Filled with stunning short and very short stories (hence the title), this book delivers some incredible tales that captivate and enthral the reader.

Each individual story offers a unique viewpoint on everyday objects and interactions that we all take for granted, and twist them into truly mesmerising and inspirational tales that will leave the reader caught off guard and permanently second guessing potential outcomes. For example, what would happen if attending a job interview you committed a murder, or discovered that the recent operation you had resulting in being given the transplanted brain of a serial killer?

As well as the more abstract tales, this title is also filled with heartfelt stories filled with emotion and compassion, such as “Farwell Symphony”, where a dead composer’s final symphony is performed for the first time, and traditional stories that are told from an unusual perspective, such as in “The Last Words of Emanuel Prettyjohn”. Whatever the subject matter though, this book delivers a refreshing, enjoyable and riveting read.

One of the books greatest strengths is the quality of the writing – the incredible narrative immediately conjures up wonderful imagery and the easy to read style makes this book almost impossible to put down. Simply put, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this title and would have no hesitations recommending it to fans of abstract,exciting short stories.
