Review from OnlineBookClub.org
William H. Coles has put together an astonishing collection of thirty-three short stories, including breathtaking stories like; The gift, The Wreak of the Amtrak’s Silver Service and Nemesis. In his book, Illustrated Short Fiction of William H. Coles 2000- 2016, each character is caught in a specific situation- desperate to get out. Though the stories are, as the title suggests, fiction the accuracy of his stories blew my mind!
Each character is realistically created, and that has allowed me to connect with each and every one. Learning new things from each story was captivating and thrilling. Once you open the book, the beautiful illustrations catch your attention immediate and when you start reading the story you get lost in the words.
To all the readers who love to read about the real world and cry, laugh, and yell about it, this book would be ideal for you. William H. Coles really has a way with words and evoking emotions of all sorts. I would rate this book a full 4 out of 4 stars.
