Product Description

Product Description

A uniquely Australian anthology of short stories, visually, culturally and linguistically evocative of that country (and continent), the unsurprisingly named 'Long and Short Australian Stories' is incredibly readable and relatable, with the sort of easy-going narrative fluency that makes each story a thoroughly enchanting page-turner.

Though always from her perch on the Aussie shoreline, Sharp explores all the universal themes that define stories of romance and relationships: jealousy, ambition, empathy, love and self-actualization.

Backdrops include beaches, cottages and city apartments, the urban and the rural: a multifaceted scenic tour that enhances the feel of the various narratives... long and short. This is a book for fans of literary fiction and romance, but suitable also for a YA audience.

As are all of Margaret Lynette Sharp's books, this is one is edited by her husband Ronald Sharp B.E.M., the creator of the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall's Grand Organ.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a collection of stories about relationships - most are very short and as such I enjoyed them for a quick read at bedtime when I didn't want to stay up all night!

I've not read a lot of short stories so for me the hardest thing was getting used to the pace ... By that I mean, just getting into who the characters are, and how they relate to each other, and then that's it -- story's over! I think if you are "into" the concept of short stories then you will find these stories to be good--I found them well written and thought provoking.

I'd give this little collection around 3.5 - 4 stars.
