“The Hero of Blind Pig Island and Other Island Stories”


51ThObL6KvL._AC_US160_My book review for today is “The Hero of Blind Pig Island and Other Island Stories” by Jimmy Olsen. This falls in the genre of anthology which has diversified topics.

This book contains 12 short stories. In the story “Reservado” a mother sneaks away to meet a secret love that her family hasn’t known about for years. You see how this woman loves and has loved this one man. In “Denise” we read about a young woman learning how to scuba dive to becoming an instructor herself as she goes where she can find work, not much as a care in the world, doing what she loves. How her teacher is fascinated with her from beginning to end drawn in by her personality.

The stories go on,varying in length and carry you from little boy on a salt island to hurricanes. The book will take you on adventures especially if you are not one who has venture far from home.

What I really like about this is it is an anthology. You can read a few stories, read more than that, and put it down for a while. When you return you start fresh with a new story. Perfect for reading while in line, on vacation or on a plane.

This was a good read

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review
