I'm sure the author is sick of reading this, but I have to agree with previous reviewers of this title. There's far too much crammed into so few pages. It could have been a great full-length novel but makes a rushed novella. And while I realize this was originally part of a short story in an anthology, why not make it longer when you make it a stand alone?That's not to say I didn't like it. It's an interesting tale, really. It's WWII and this young girl's mother is abducted by the Japanese in Ma [...]
ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. First of all, thank you NetGalley for this copy. Honestly, I requested this book without reading the summary. I'm guilty for picking this book based on the cover. Sorry. It sort of gave me an impression of historical fiction. I rarely read a book belonging in that genre.I was surprised that this is inspired in Philippine History. I remembered when I was in grade school and high school we used to study this and I tried recalling some of it. As [...]
((4.5 stars))I loved this story, a lot more than the others in its anthology. It's a haunting look into a war torn country, with a thrilling plot and a really great main character. This is the first of these stories I've REALLY connected with, because the genre and story and everything just clicked. its exciting and dark and hopeless, a memorable historical thriller. The writing is so good, and really gets across the desperate situation. Ill definitely be looking for more from this author.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.So, I'll admit that the Confidant wasn't what I was expecting. First, I had no idea that this was quite so short. It was a bit of a surprise. Also, it had some of the problems that are more prevalent in shorter books. So that was also not all that fun.Problem #1: The whirl-wind plot. You can only fit so much into 64 pages. The amount of plot twists and action-y scenes that were in here could have properly filled a 200 page book [...]
This was definitely a quick and action-packed book but it was slow and dull at some times. The story picks up immediately but there is no world building or explanation of what's happening. I know it's in History but it just mentions the two fighting sides and how the mother is taken away by soldiers. It could have used just an explanation on the origin of the war or a brief explanation on what had happened so far.I did say this book was full of action but it was still somehow boring and dragged [...]
I'm not used to novellas or short stories so the pacing in this was was kinda fast for my liking. Even tho this book is only about 100 pages long and it's easy and fast to read - I read it in about one hour - it left me wanting to know more about Emma and her future.What makes this book interesting is that is set during WWII in Manila and the Japanese occupation. Not the usual point of view we have on every other book that whose story goes on during WWII. This book touches some serious issues th [...]
