    1 thought on “Never Ever After: Three Short Stories

    1. Three stories, two of which are retellings of celtic legends. The Cinderella story is more original. All the stories are charmingly told. The first and last ones being the best.

    2. As this is a book of short stories, I will try to say something about each story The first story, A Serca Tale, I found myself thinking that everything that needed to happen to move the plot along happened because of some kind of spell. I was upset that this would be the thing to push the plot along. There could have been more to the story of a woman trying to get out of an arranged marriage, but I felt more like this was just the quick throwing together of two people. There was some good story [...]

    3. I don't really know what to say about this small collection of short stories. Were they astounding short stories that filled my mind with wonder at what happened later, like Asimov and McCaffrey short stories have done for me before. No, not really. But they were well told stories that didn't leave me griping at the open endedness of them. They formed clear pictures in my mind and were a very quick read (took me less than an hour). And I enjoyed the use of Irish folklore (something I've always f [...]

    4. This book only took approximately half an hour to read but was enjoyable nonetheless. All three stories were exceptionally well written with a lovely blend of fantasy and realism. The imagery in all the stories was very vivid and it was easy to visualize the different settings. All the stories had an element of poignancy and they all seemed to describe the bittersweetness of love and that in life, there is no gain without loss. These stories were not what I think of when I think about fairy tale [...]

    5. I wouldn't say I didn't like this collection of short stories, I did, just for me it didn't hit all the right buttons. The stories were well told, the traditional tale well envisioned, and there was great emotion in all of the stories. The originality in the Cinderella retelling was commendable, so I don't understand why I didn't like it a whole lot better than I did.

    6. Delizioso!Davvero una piacevole lettura in lingua. Si tratta di tre racconti: i primi due riprendono delle leggende irlandesi, il terzo è la storia di Ellie (alias Cenerentola), dopo il matrimonio con il suo bel principe.Anche qui, l'inglese di Ruth Nestvold è piacevole e fluido, come in "Shadow of Stone". Una lettura di un pomeriggio che consiglio!

    7. three short stories told in the Celtic tradition; the third tale being a sort of sequel to Cinderella. Interesting enough, I would probably read more by the author.
