Review and Giveaway- A Puppets Secret



Title : The Puppets Secret
Author: Alex Samms

Summary:
A story of a middle-aged woman finding that reality and insanity border on a fine line.
A tale of romance that never was and the consequences one must pay for the choices one makes. What happens is unexpected and keeps you wanting more.

Review:
I received an ARC from the author for an honest review.
I must also mention that this is a very short story.
So… If you know anything about me and my choice of stories, its that I rarely enjoy short stories. I like  LONG novels, and if it’s a series, it’s a plus. The longer the story, the better.
This was very short. Took me about… ten minutes to read.
It was a little confusing at first, I couldn’t tell who was talking or not. There is very little dialogue, everything is internal monologue. The story starts out with an older woman who hates life, and then goes into why she hates it.
She explains herself, the best she can, about when and why her life fell apart.
She had a secret… one she kept quiet her whole life. And though she knew what was right and wrong, she felt as if on the brink of insanity… It was an interesting read, to say the least.
So… really I have no sympathy for anyone in her predicament (I don’t want to spoil anything). Though the writing was solid, I just didn’t feel any connection or sympathy for the Main character.
If you are in the mood for a quick, thought-provoking story, you should check this one out.
Rating: 3 Stars

  2. I wonder what her 'predicament' was... too bad you couldn't really get into it. Nice review! Thanks for stopping by. ;)

  3. I agree. I really don't usually like short stories, although there are exceptions (Stephen King comes to mind.) Thanks for visiting. I'm a new follower.
