Comments 10 Short Stories You Must Read in 2011

  1. Passage by Caroline OveringtonThis is the fictional story of Paul Bannerman, who became a member of the Jesus People when a teenager, and spent seven years with them, praying and working, near Euroa in Victoria, back in the mid 70 s Paul had no idea what to do with his life, and one day, when he was wandering into town from uni, dissatisfied with life, he came across Brother Ruhamah, and in the ensuing 24 hours, was convinced to leave with him, and make his way to the commune, where he was welco [...]


  2. I m not into horror and gore so Birmingham s story, while sharp and even oddly funny, wouldn t have made my top ten.Jessica Rudd s piece was delightful, in a quirky, poignant and clever way.Cate s tale made me smile than once, and reminded me of teenage volunteering i d done in a nursing home It was well structured with vivid, real characters.Bradley s was intense and hard hitting I found it disturbing, but an admirable piece of writing.More to come.


  3. As 2011 draws to a close, I just managed to squeeze this one in Always a great introduction to new authors, this short story collection is part of Get Reading , Australia s largest annual celebration of reading and books There are some fabulous Australian authors included in the book some established, some newbies Check it out It is well worth a read.The book programme is an Australian Government initiative aimed at promoting books and reading amongst all Australians It is now in its 10th year P [...]


  4. A fairly decent collection of short stories with a nice variety of genres, though it was a bit mixed in terms of quality The best stories were in the first half my favourites were Laminex and Mirrors the first one and my favourite of the lot, I think , Big Knobs, and Pi ata My least favourite was Trust, which was like a rather bad short story version of The Bourne Identity I didn t care a jot about any of the characters in it, because I didn t know anything about them it was just all very clich [...]



  5. What a terrific collection of short stories The last two weren t my cup of tea but, then, it s subjective, isn t it, so that doesn t mean much They were well written, though, so no criticism there You might love them.


  6. 10 Short Stories You Must Read in 2011 is an interesting collection of Australian short stories If I had to pick a theme, I d say it s about challenging life.I picked up a copy at my local library good karma to all fabulous local libraries and dived in, searching for a story I wanted to review for the Australian Women Writers Challenge All the stories are strong in their own fashion, and this is a nicely varied selection, but I decided to go with Charlotte Wood s Nanoparticles.A few things drew [...]


  7. For a free book this was a pretty good read, but I m glad it was free because I would have hated to pay for it and not enjoy it Most of the stories were average and some made me want to scream WTF at the top of my lungs when I finished However, two stood out for me and have earned at least one of the stars in the rating Larissa Behrendt s The Space Between Us and Jessica Rudd s Pi ata were poignant, wistful and moving they made the collection worth reading Caroline Overington s Passage was also [...]


  8. Very interesting to read a collection of short stories when I have written so many myself Most of them, though, failed to grab me Interesting and well written without any wow factor These Australian authors shave achieved what I aspire to I have been criticized for ending some of my stories too abruptly Unsurprisingly, the stories I liked most in had somewhat abrupt endings, or slightly up in the air endings My faves were Pinata and The Existence of Women I can recommend this collection of quite [...]


  9. I am becoming a fan of short stories, much admiring the skill in writing a short cohesive story which grabs you quick holds you rapt as these stories have done My favourites from this selection from such a fine array of Australian authors would be Trust James Phelan, Pinata Jessica Rudd, Passage Caroline Overington, The demons of Buttercrack County John Birmingham.


  10. A mix anthology of Australian written short stories worth reading The genres, the authors, the style and the ability to captivate the reader varied throughout this anthologyI d guess there was something for pretty much everyone and with only one exception, I enjoyed them all some just than othersI may even go and seek some of the authors out


  11. I enjoyed the book though I don t reckon these stories must be read At least, some of them.I like Laminex and Mirrors by Cate Kennedy, Big Knobs by Bill Condon, Pinata by Jessica Rudd, Nanoparticles by Charlotte Wood and Passage by Caroline Overington.


  12. An interesting mix of genres, this anthology does what it sets out to do provide a showcase of Australian short stories The standouts for me were Cate Kennedy s Laminex and Mirrors and Miranda Darling s The Existence of Women.


  13. These stories were engaging and well written but not particularly challenging While I doubt any of them will stick with me, I would recommend this in a heartbeat to someone who doesn t read much for pleasure or finds reading slow or difficult.



  14. Really enjoyed about half of them but I m not a big fan of action short stories A worthwhile read especially for fans of short stories.




  15. Read this twice now and enjoy most of the stories writing in here Bought it secondhand, despite it not being for sale worth paying for



  16. A real mix funny stories, silly stories, teary stories, poignant stories, action, horror, romance A good diversion.






  17. The first half of this collection is utterly miserable It picks up half way through though with some interesting stories in the latter half.


  18. An all round decent collection Some fantastic stories Some not so Particularly notable Jessica Rudd s Pi ata , with a wonderfully fluid style and quirky, unique characters.


  19. I ve decided I don t like short stories These guys are all brilliant writers but just as you begin to really like one of the stories it ends



  20. Great book There s a few stores that I didnt like, but the others were amazing Such great writers They had amazing storylines To me, a must have on the bookshelf
