A review of 'In all Probability: A collection of short stories'

Image
This collection of 30 short tales packs in so much its hard to know where to start. Each tale packs a lot in with plenty of implied and hinted backstories and endings that let you build on the teaser style writing that Morris uses. Because of this, these stories don't feel anywhere near as short as they are and before you know it you have been pulled into Morris' world in all its strange, scary, odd and unsettling glory. Morris's writing flows as well as ever and will appeal to all types of reader (unless you really don't like short stories, but even then you should try these to see how well they can be done). I was particularly fond of It's An Ill Wind and Dead Eye, and was somewhat amused by Progress and Better Late Than Never. A few of the tales were also quite touching, especially Swan Song which I think definitely ranks in one of my favourites. A great collection, proven by the fact that I read the lot in one evening...oops. Sam's review, Dec 30, 2016

Can the Passivity of the Protagonist Spoil the Perception of Your Book

Image
I decided to raise a very interesting topic that, in most cases, is typical to novice authors, but sometimes peculiar to both advanced and world-known writers . Yes, today I’m going to talk about the passivity of the protagonist. That is the hero that has no will and acts at the behest of others. So why does this phenomenon take place in literary works, and how does it affect the success of the book? Finally, how to deal with it?

New authors experience a lot of difficulties, and the very first of them is the inability to choose a topic. It may happen that you can’t come up with something really interesting and engaging even having a lot of knowledge in the field and a strong desire to create a masterpiece.

To boost your writing, I’ve collected a list of essential questions that may significantly advance the selection of a topic. #1 What is Your Favorite Kind of Books? The books chosen by you for reading are the first and the most obvious source for topics! There is nothing wrong to cover the same topic as you are reading now although many beginners are afraid of expressing the thoughts of others instead of their own. However, in non-fiction literature, it is practically impossible to say something new. Moreover, the reader does not buy the information about the problem – he buys your personal view on the issue and how

An enthralling detective thriller novel. Mr Carrick is laid to rest

Image
It is August 1974. A respected teacher at a private girls’ school in rural Worcestershire, Adrian Carrick, physically attracted to one of the Sixth-Form leavers, discloses his feelings for her. Convinced that he has mishandled their final meeting, he writes her a letter of regret and then kills himself by leaping over the edge of a quarry. The coroner’s verdict is suicide while the balance of his mind is disturbed. Not all is as it appears, however, and Inspector Wickfield is called in to take a look. His investigation leads him to Venice, where Carrick seemingly led a double life as the owner of an art gallery which acted as a base for international crime, to St.Gallen and Bologna, to Hereford and Birmingham, to Pershore and the suburbs of Worcester, without significant success. A second murder adds increasing urgency to the case. Interleaved in the investigation are the members of Mr Carrick’s philosophy class, in particular the girl who had caught Carrick’s eye.
