The Recluse Storyteller
Mark W Sasse
Reviewed by Laura
The opening pages of this book had me hooked and needing to read more! The Recluse Storyteller is cleverly written and combines five stories into one. Each story had me riveted and wanting to know what happens next and the author certainly kept me reading.
Margaret, The Recluse Storyteller, changes the life of 5 people with her stories that just keep taking over Margaret’s mind. The people in her apartment block keep hearing bits of these stories and start to think that maybe they’re not just stories after all. Theirs the twins down the hall who have to keep coming back for more. The guy across the hall whose past might have just come back to haunt him. The reverend, whose memories of Vietnam just won’t go away. The Aunt who has to try and determine if her niece is going insane.
I have never read a book quite like this and the author has a fantastic way of entwining the stories together without it being confusing.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would read it again. I will definitely be reading more of Mark’s work
A very well deserved 5 Golden Apples
