Hopeful Monsters - Book Review

Hopeful Monsters
by Jeffe Kennedy

What is it about:
A woman faces a terrible disease… and the monster within.

What did I think of it:
I was lucky enough to receive both a digital copy of this short story as the audio book for review.

This story is different from most of Jeffe's other work. There's no romance, instead it's a disturbing, unsettling story where reality and dreams mix. It made me think about life and how we perceive it. It has a haunting quality that makes that it keeps lingering in your head long after finishing it.

The writing is as with all of Jeffe's stories vivid and beautiful. She is great at setting the right mood, no matter if she's writing Fantasy, Romance, BDSM Romance, or a short work like this.

The audio version is narrated by Jeffe Kennedy herself, just as with her short story Birdwoman. I think she does a great job at narrating: she has a very pleasant voice to listen to, and the story being her own makes that she knows just how to tell it.

All in all I can advice this story to fans of Jeffe's writing, and to those who are looking for a short, disturbing, but beautiful read.

Why should you read it:
It's a beautiful, unsettling read.
