A Collection of Short Stories is a stunning collection of ten stories that all are unique but focus on different characters and their very different lives from places all around the world. The collection of short stories are fantastic, and from the first one I was hooked; I was hooked because the readability of the author’s words is flawless, Catharine LJ Parks managed to captivate me with her stunning literature and compel me to read until the very end. Parks is an author whose words have gripped, charmed, and thrilled me thanks to her outstanding talent at writing as well as her craft for writing memorable stories. The story of A Collection of Short Stories is a phenomenal one that all readers will love…. Especially those that adore fiction laced with real-life experiences and stories that are relatable as well as inspirational and moving!
A Collection of Short Stories features ten stories and all of them I believe are based on real-life experiences and feature humor but also poignant themes such as grief and loss. There are many stories laced throughout A Collection of Short Stories, but my personal favorite was one about PTSD. This is a story that really moved me and what was so special about it was that throughout it the story provides advice on how to help those with it and how to guide them back to happiness and health. Another favorite of mine was about religion and how nobody should ever judge another religion, and I thought that was incredible. Because even if you do not believe in the religion, you have to respect that people are entitled to their own opinions and that they should never be judged. Another beautiful story is about one woman’s spiritual journey as she is on her deathbed and that was an extraordinary but emotive story that should be read by everybody.
The stories laced throughout A Collection of Short Stories are not only entertaining but also moving because all of them deal with poignant themes that will move, motivate and inspire readers. As I read the stories, I found that some of them resonated with me and certain experiences within my life. That is the beauty of A Collection of Short Stories because all readers, no matter where you are from in the world will be able to relate to the stories in some way and that is an exquisite quality about this book.
Catharine LJ Parks is an astounding author who is an expert storyteller who knows how to keep her readers entertained with her many different, emotive stories. A quality I love about Park’s literature is her ability to develop phenomenal characters and make them realistic as well as believable. Each character the reader comes across in the novel will spark interest within a reader, whether it be bad or good interest; this is because each character is well developed and different from the last, some readers may like one character, and some may dislike one. That is the beauty of literature and the incredible author’s literature.
Overall A Collection of Short Stories is a stellar read that will move, charm and delight its readers with its many compelling stories that will captivate you from start to finish. That is why I have no choice but to award A Collection of Short Stories a magnificent five stars! Please do have a read of the preview below book lovers as you will not regret it!
