My Thoughts

Who’s Sorry Now is a collection of 4 short stories covering a wide range of genres, including; love, betrayal, and murder!  I’m not really going to go into any detail about each story as it would give away surprises.

I always feel that writing a short story takes a huge amount of skill.  To write something short with a beginning, middle and end and to have enough ‘meat on the bones’ to keep the reader interested is a difficult task.  Hélen Fermont does this really well in this collection.  Each story takes between 5 and 10 minutes to read but are so complete that you feel as though you’ve read a novel. Perfect for short commutes or picking up if you only have a few minutes.

Written in a contemporary style, each individual story is a delight to read and very cleverly constructed.  I love the fact that despite the length, some stories still had a great twist or two in them which made for exciting reading and lots of lingering thoughts afterwards.

I am yet to read a full novel by this author but I am now planning on it very soon.
