In my experience, there's usually an imbalance between the number of hours in a day and everything I want to do. Thus, something must be cut out, and that something is often reading. I love reading a thick book, but nowadays I only have a few stolen minutes at a time, and it takes forever to finish something.
Short stories and novellas are an excellent remedy to the reading blues. They allow me to be entertained, and feel accomplished because I finished something.
This fine evening I lacked the inner peace to write, and I saw the short story My Past Life as a Dung Beetle by L.K. Hatchett mentioned on Facebook. Perfect! Amazon can be a miracle-worker; from the thought of reading to downloading to actually reading in seconds.
So, what did I think of it? Five stars.
Here is my review:
My past life as a dung beetle is about a collector of random stuff and his family. I had no idea what to expect when I started reading it, and the first couple of pages both amused and confused me. They were funny and cute, but I didn't get it. Then, the story really got going, and I hurried through it with a smile on my lips. All the pieces fell into place and everything made sense.
I'm sure I stem from a genetic line of gatherers. I save all sorts of crap because it might be useful at some point in the future. My husband has a collection of collections. My past life as a dung beetle made me smile with recognition, root for the hero, and sympathize with the heroine. It is a touching story about life, well worth reading.
The book is just 99 cents, and it is available on Amazon.
