100 Stories for Queensland by Jodi Cleghorn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I actually read this anthology a couple of months ago, but never wrote a review as I became tied up with the Hope project and didn’t have time. Now, I’m attempting to catch up on reviews and posts and felt it was time to write a review for this book.
100 stories. 100 authors. 100 unique ideas published in one book. The stories are extra short and touch on all kinds of wonderful things that stir the emotions. I found myself snickering while reading one story and crying (in a good way) when reading another.
Most of the stories are light-hearted, set in every day situations. Some of the stories take you away from the world we know and drop you in a fantasy world or on an unknown planet/space ship. All of them give you a moment to appreciate life through the eyes of someone else.
And the profits from the sale of the book are donated to the survivors of the Queensland floods, which devastated something like 80% of Queensland in early 2011.
This would make a brilliant gift.
