Book Review: The Siege and Other Award Winning Short Stories

My heart-felt thanks to Margaux for this 🙂

Words of Margaux

 

In her collection, The Siege, Esther Newton has proven to be a versatile writer who is able to tell engaging stories, and create strong characters in a terse manner. While each story is an average of 2,000 words long, when reading those tales, the reader feels that he’s traveled a long way with the characters and the plot, as every sentence is in its place, and every word propels the story forward.

My two favorite stories in the collection would be The Siege, the title of the book, which tells a fast-paced tale of entrapment and liberation. And, The Best and Worst Bonfire Night Ever, which is great because Newton was able to narrate multiple events, from multiple viewpoints, in a brief number of pages.

Perfect for the prolific and the novice readers alike, The Siege and Other Award Winning Stories is a collection to keep on your tablet…
