Reviews

tales to fire the imagination


(4 stars)

Arthur Macham's writing is always brilliantly descriptive- almost poetic. The atmosphere of each tale slowly builds to its conclusion but here, we are left to our own imagination. I have deducted 1 star because I would have liked more ' summing up" but if the aim was to fire the readers' imagination into their own conclusion, it works. Very good reader.
