The most astounding collection of short stories I have read.
Haunting, surreal and moving – Madame Zero by Sarah Hall has to be among the greatest collection of short stories that is out at the moment. Every story leaves you feeling differently, from concern about a certain character to relief and then excitement. This is a treasure trove of vivid, lyrical text that takes you on to a deeper level and leaves you thinking about the stories for days after.
In these stories we meet a woman who has turned into a fox (much to her husbands confusion), a feral child, a man surviving in post apocalyptic Britain and a woman with a brain tumour to name but a few. Each story offers up different emotions and leaves the reader wanting more after having a brief glimpse into these characters lives.
At only £12.99 for nine stories this is an absolute steal and I would advise anyone who is looking for short stories to read this. You will not be disappointed.
