Dark Lies the Island

Dark Lies the Island - Kevin Barry Dark Lies the Island by Kevin Barry is a book of short stories.

I really did not enjoy this book and found the stories lacking in character development and just did hold my interest. I found myself going from one story to the next without really enjoying what I was reading.

I am not a fan of short stories as I always feel the story ends before it begins but having said that, I am not used to reading short stories and I think you have to learn to think more and differently in a short story and fill in the gaps as you are not going to get the plot or character development of a Novel.

Not my cup of tea but am sure fans of short stories will enjoy it.
