ABC-Destiny by Author Voinks
ABC-Destiny can be read in an hour, perfect if you only have a short time to read a book. I loved this story because the characters were very different and enjoyable to follow and the storyline was well put together and was rather emotional and gripping at the same time.
The story itself follows three girls Abigail, Beatrice, Cecelia each with a different background as they take you through a day in their lives. What is the true story? Will there be a happier ending for all concerned? Read this gripping story to find out.
I thought author Voinks did a great job in bringing out the different personalities in all her character, which made them easy to imagine and engaging to read about. I also thought Delphine and Frank’s story was really well written and I found myself very quickly emerged into their story.
I also found Delphine’s father figure in the book rather creepy, which gave this story a rather eerie feel that added layers of mystery and emotions of the story.
The end was surprising and didn’t disappoint at all. I will be keeping an eye out for other books written by the author in future,
I would recommend ABC-Destiny if you like character-driven books with a great storyline underneath. Why not give this book a try.
I’ve been a fan of Voinks’ work for sometime now, after having read a great many of her short stories on her blog (which is well worth checking out if you like short fiction, by the way – she catches snapshots of life in her stories with observational skills that I could only ever aspire to have). In fact, I read a lot of short-story blogs, and one thing that I’ve noticed is that sometimes, the author struggles to make the transition from short shorts to longer shorts or full-length novels. So I was intrigued to read something by Voinks with a little more to chew on – and I wasn’t disappointed.
I think the term ‘page-turner’ is used too often but it’s a term that definitely applies in this case. The story is so intriguing that I was keen desperate to find out what happened, and that kept me up way past my bedtime (after which I bemoan my lack of sleep but in reality, it’s an occurrence that excites me a lot more than it probably should). The book begins with a series of snapshots of the lives of each character, after which it focuses on just two – Frank and Delphine. It’s this technique in particular that had me racking my brain to work out what was happening, and mostly, I wanted to know how the initial three snapshots connected with the rest of the story. After racing to the end having all revealed, I wasn’t disappointed – the connection is a strong one and what’s even better is that it wasn’t one I couldn’t have possibly guessed at before.
This book, at its heart, is a mystery but it’s one that is embroiled in strong character development and intriguing plot. It’s emotional and heartfelt, but not in a way that detracts from the story line. It’s believable yet unbelievable all at the same time. It’s short, but it’s complete – the story is well-rounded with closure and for me at least, I wouldn’t want it to be any longer. In fact, it’s structured more like a short story than a novel (and I don’t mean just in its length) – it has the feel of a photograph over a movie and that adds a certain element of rapidity but also of satisfaction. It’s a quick bite of something interesting, a snack rather than a four-course meal, a pleasant jog around the park in the sunshine rather than an epic marathon. It retains all of the delights of Voinks’ shorter works whilst adding a little length and a little extra bite.
It’s most definitely a book that I would recommend, and for me, I fear it’s the beginning of a long love affair between me and Voinks’ work. I don’t know whether she has written anything of any greater length, something more akin to a tour de force, but I’d like to read something like that by her – something that I can really get my teeth into. In the meantime though, I’ll continue to enjoy her short stories with the same vigour as before.
