Words of the Witches, edited by Yvonne Jocks. This is a book of short (fictional) stories by Witches. How to say this? I enjoyed reading this book, quite a bit, actually. I liked all of the stories and I liked reading the spells (especially the one for children, to get rid of bad dreams). The writing is a bit rough in places. Just, um, I don't know. See, I just don't want to say that the writing sort of stinks. But it does. Most of the stories read with a wooden feel (sort of like Keaneau Reeves' acting) with unbelievable dialogue and stiff, cliche descriptions. This is not top-shelf fiction writing.
However. I genuinely liked ever bit of it, wooden writing and all.Posted by Aimee at November 14, 2002 07:53 PM
