Inhaltsangabe zu „Beautiful Sorrows“ von Mercedes M. Yardley

There is a place where sorrows pile up like snow and rest in your hair like cherry blossoms. Boys have wings, monsters fall in love, women fade into nothingness, and the bones of small children snap like twigs. Darkness will surely devour you—but it will be exquisitely lovely while doing so. Mercedes M. Yardley’s Beautiful Sorrows is an ephemeral collection encompassing twenty-seven short tales full of devastation, death, longing, and the shining ribbon of hope that binds them all together.

    Beautiful Sorrows


    12. June 2017 um 07:07

    This book was just not for me. There's nothing wrong with the stories: they are beautifully written with a kind of ethereal quality that lures you into some fantastic fairytale domain. But I just couldn't get into it and always waited for some 'wow' effect that never came - at least for me. Also, the stories seemed repetitive and started to blur into another, which felt like reading the same story over and over again, only with slight variations. What may be fine with other readers only intensified my discomfort.While I myself did not like the book much, I understand that there are many readers out there who will love this collection. So if you think this may be your kind of book don't let my personal disappointment with it discourage you from finding out for yourself - each to his own.(Thanks to Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of the book, all opinions are my own)
