My Rating: ★★★★½
Heaven Can Wait and Other Stories is a collection of eight short stories which largely carry a philosophical message of some sort. At only 37 pages, it’s incredible how much depth fits so smoothly into this book.
The story that stood out to me the most was ‘Two Apples’. Though short, it was beautiful and spiritual and centered on family. Most of the stories have a spiritual element to them.
I think there are some bits lost in translation, but even still, this is a wonderful little collection of short shorties.
A huge thanks to the author for offering to send me a free copy of the book to read and review! I chose to read this on KindleUnlimited.
Likes & Dislikes:
What I liked:
- The spiritual nature of the stories.
- The humanity that comes through in the characters.
What I didn’t like:
- As I mentioned, I think there are some things being lost in translation as some of the sentences are a bit broken. This did not, however, take away from my enjoyment completely. With a couple of the stories it added to the charm.
I’m impressed by how rich the stories were given their lengths. I great, thoughtful read!
