A series of short stories about when the fairy tale ends and everything falls apart. Love,death and revenge all feature in these tales where not everything is as it seems.

3.0 out of 5 stars When love dies

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 November 2017

This was my first read by this author so I went in with no expectations. The collection of stories are all about relationships that have ended badly, when the love just..dies.

As they were short stories there wasn't really any background for them, but some of them felt like they could be connected to each other. They were well written but I do wish some had been a little longer as it felt like there was something missing from a couple of them as they were a bit abrupt.

We get an insight into the darker side of when a relationship ends, either suddenly or the planning that has gone into it from one partner. There was a good mixture of death mixed in with the humorous side.

I would definitely read more by this author.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Paula Acton, like me, is an indie author. Personally I think we should support each other more and this is the book I have decided to start with.

Disintegration and other stories is her first story fiction collection to be published. She has been featured in online journals and in the charity anthology Lupus Animus.

BLURB ON BACK

A series of short stories about when the fairy tale ends and everything falls apart. Love, death and revenge all feature in these tales where not everything is as it seems. The phrase till death do us part takes on a different meaning in both Disintegration and Empty, while Table For One and Deuce examine the more humorous side of betrayal.

GOOD BITS ABOUT THE BOOK

My favorite short story in the book was definitely Disintegration. I really did not see that ending coming! I think it would do well as a longer story to, there is quite a few ways it could stretch out.

Table For One made me laugh, if you have ever been cheated on then you have probably imagined doing what happens in that story.

I liked the way all the stories were written, quite casually, which meant you couldn’t see ending’s such as in Disintegration.

NOT SO GOOD BIT’S ABOUT THE BOOK

To be fair I don’t really have anything to say in this bit.

A couple of the stories were possibly a bit short such as Empty.

There were a few typo’s but to be honest I think that is more to do with the system of indie publishing as that has happened to me even though you and many other people edit it a thousand times!

RATING FOR BOOK

Overall I really enjoyed the book and will be buying her next one which, I read, is going to be called Voices Across The Void. This will be out in Autumn.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very different

Although I gave this 3.5* it is in no way a bad reflection on the book or the writer, I gave it that due to the fact that I think some of the stories could have done with being a bit longer. This was a quick read and very different from anything I have read before. It was nice to read about what happens after the happily ever after and that sometimes things don't always work. This book contains lots of surprises and is worth reading.

There are some really good short stories in this book, some of them I would like to be made into longer stories as I felt they had more to give but all in all they were good but sometimes dark reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great selection of short stories with twists you won't expect.

A selection of short stories based around divorce/separation and the reasons behind it. Even though each tale is short in length, they all have enough in them to make you invested in the tale.
I thoroughly enjoyed them.
