I was given a copy of this book for an honest review and that honest review follows.
Loves Lost. Three stories of love with that common theme, lost. The theme, though, plays out differently in each story told.
First I want to say I read through the stories several times. They are easy reads in that they are easy to follow and quick to read.
I believe the quality of imagery and skill of writing seemed to grow with each story.
Being short stories the writer has the goal of pulling the reader in and quickly connecting to the characters. In the first story Mine Forever I did not feel this. This was a story that seemed to have potential but didn’t quite make it. The writing wasn’t very strong and the imagery was overdone and clichéd. I will say that with some rework I would like to see this story again, because the character, if written differently could really be one that people would love.
The Thing About Memories hit a bit home in some aspects considering I am an amnesiac as is the main character. The imagery and writing in this was superior to Mine Forever. I was almost there with the character at times and I was able to connect with him. Although, there were a few times I felt there was a bit of losing the way. But then, with an amnesiac that happens. Even though there was a bit of predictability as you hit the middle of the story you still aren’t certain about everything that happens, which I was impressed with. Overall a good story and would be interesting to see if there could be a follow up to this one. Might be interesting to see a short story on this character about this in upcoming books.
Love Came Calling Again is the final story and once again the imagery and quality increases. This time the main character is a woman and there is connection. Things occur that we can all relate to and I enjoyed this story with its somewhat sentimental aspect. I liked it but it was a bit predictable except for one certain aspect of the ending.
Realistic Characterization: 2/5
