Book Review: Telling Tales

Title: Telling Tales

Author: Jill Griffin



Readers will take delight in this charming, wonderfully wide-ranging treasury of original, often poignant, humorous short stories.

There is much to love in this delightfully witty anthology. There is a smooth mix of fiction and reflections. Family, love, loyalty and hope mingled with loss, envy, and revenge, all woven together in a captivating look at the sometimes odd absurdities of human nature. Every tale is touched with the author’s sharp sense of humour, and portrays the reasoning that we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously.

A perfect night-stand book, that you can dip in and out of, as you muse and reflect on life’s ups and downs. From family secrets, to ghosts and revenge, there is a whole host of delights waiting inside.


5/5 Stars

I think the best thing about this anthology is the way the stories are lined up to truly give you a rollercoaster of emotions by the time you reach the end of the book. Though each story seemed to have its own sort of mood, I love the way each one had an unpredictable twist. All in all, a captivating read.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
