Review from
Every short story and both the graphic novels and not forgetting the novella were mesmerizing and attractive reads. Completely refreshing and captivating. I absolutely appreciate the all-round greatness of this collection of literature. In general, I find books containing collections of literature to have mostly mediocre reads with perhaps one or two good reads. It is clear that Mr. Coles lives by a code of “excellence always’. Mr. Coles has a writing style of note. His literature is written works of art and is easy to read and follow. And difficult to put down!
As the name suggests, Illustrated Short Fiction of William H. Coles: 2000-2016 contains fictional tales. However, the accuracy in which Mr. Coles depicts things such as human emotions blows realistic winds right through these tales. It is easy for the reader to relate to some of the characters and situations. There are definitely characters that will remind the reader of people he or she has met. Some readers may even recognize themselves in some of the characters. The tales consist of all kinds of circumstances and of course all kinds of people as well. Some of these tales will perplex the mind while other tales will tear at the heart. I particularly loved the well-crafted illustrations accompanying the tales. Each illustration is perfectly explanatory to the related tale.
