Book Review – Small Matters

Small Matters by Michael Kanuckel

Charming and thought provoking collection of short stories. I appreciated the skill with which this author brought a narrative to life in such a short space. The first story, ‘Faces in the Wall’ was my favorite. Fairytales and magic blending with reality has always been a wonderful subject for my contemplation.
I didn’t enjoy the emotional, darker stories as much, but I still appreciate the skill with which they are carefully woven.
‘The Rending’ was also a story that I connected with as it had the ingredients I love – elves, magic, fantasy, adventure, etc with a brilliant twist at the end.
With stunning descriptions and intriguing story-lines, Michael manages to draw the reader into his tales as if he were the pied piper.
There are reoccurring themes that link a few of the stories – another interesting touch that adds something more to the collection.
I enjoyed this author’s writing as well as his respect for the intelligence of his readers, and I am looking forward to more of his work in the future.
