Book Review: Little Black Book of Stories


Little Black Book of Stories by A.S. Byatt
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

The short story “The Thing in the Wood” was stunning. It begins with the opening line, “There were once two little girls who saw, or believed they saw, a thing in the forest,” Byatt knows how to begin a story, and it involves confronting the unconscious which has come to life as a monster. Overall, unfortunately, I could have done without reading this book.

“Cody's reviews come sharp and to the point, displaying a vast wealth of knowledge all things book-related, from fiction to non and everything in between. With a side dish of social satire, outright sarcasm or even both, he serves as an exemplary model for the modern day book critic.”
