Jenny was enjoying herself on the swings when Azula, one of the guardians of the playground came to take her away.
Together they journey to a cinder building where Jenny must make a powerful decision.
I have a bit of a conundrum with this review, the story runs for just 12 pages and for the first third relies on mystery, how then, can I review a book without giving anything away to anybody wishing to read it?
The story starts strongly putting you into the immediacy of the moment and really it could go anywhere, there are hints that all is not quite as it seems but due to the length of the story, you have no need to worry about being in the dark for long.
At first I thought it was going to be a children’s book but it deals with some very strong and poignant themes. The story relies on touching the feelings of the reader, the emotive impact is, perhaps one we could all imagine finding ourselves dealing with.
A lot of detail is left to the imagination throughout, unsurprisingly. There is plenty to speculate on and that is, of course the most interesting part of any book, to discuss and to open up new avenues of thought.
For its size this book won’t take long to read, even if you take your time, it does manage to pack in a fair amount of detail and leave enough hinted at for the reader not to be left puzzled by what has transpired.
For the $0.99 price point, this is worth taking a look at, perhaps more specific details would have made for a more substantial and affecting encounter but overall it is a story that has enough strong themes to make you ponder for a little while.
Once again apologies for not being around your blogs for a while (there will be a post on it at some point soon I expect), I will be round yours soon.
