Rezension zu "Little by Little" von John R. Little

misspidervor 3 Jahren

- Dreams in Black and White
The first already was my favorite story of the collection, but fortunately the rest wasn't too bad, either. A great bittersweet story, period. 5 stars.

- Burying Reena
While this one was ok, it didn't strike me as remarkable. 3 stars.

- Tails
A very bizarre and grotesque, but also sad mindtrip that makes you think. 3 stars.

- Ursa Major
I was very curious about this story as it was the only one by the author I had heard of before. While it was a very suspenseful pageturner, I was not as impressed as by the first story, because then I really felt with and for the protagonists, but here I was only following the story like an observer. There were several occasions that made me wince because they seemed so far-fetched and overdone. However, the ending was a mean little trick. Still: 4 stars

- Sarah's Story
Wow, this one was really twisted. I could not help a big grin at Sarah's final triumph, however sick it may have been. 4 stars

- The Gray Zone
Not really horror, this one is more along the lines of sci-fi, presenting a very original and fascinating version of a time travel story. Outstanding, this is my second favorite story. 5 stars

- Language Barrier
This one did nothing for me - read it, forgot it. My least favorite. 2 star.

- The Halloween Phantoms
Spooky little halloween treat. 4 stars

- Loyd and Caitlin and the Ghosts
Ok, but unremarkable, at least for me. 3 stars.

- Miranda
A story that is told in reverse, because it tells the story of a man who goes back in time, rising from the dead, getting younger and eventually going back into his mother's womb, while all people around him live in the opposite direction. At first, it was confusing, as it must have been for the main character, but once you got used to the rythm it was really fascinating. A good finale for the book. 4 stars.

Overall, a very good, above-the-average collection you can't go wrong with. Recommended.

Cracked Sky is a story about loss, but also about the love of a parent intent on sacrificing everything for his child and family.

The first half of the book really got me hooked, it was sad but then slowly it turned into something sinister and creepy. However, when Stephen enters the realm beyond the Cracked Sky in order to save his little girl, the plot became a bit fuzzy and sometimes confusing, making it hard to follow. There where several scenes thrown in where I was unsure of their meaning or importance for the story. It felt like the author wanted to create something big, fantastical, but put in too much.

Nevertheless, the story was a fascinating read with a unique plot and believable characters.
