Spinning My Wheels by Wes Snowden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Sometimes we don’t see things as they really are. I think there are situations where we just don’t want to see and others where we really can’t climb through that fog. Sometimes we forget what’s most important, trading in our souls for material things. Some of us live alone, wondering if anyone will know our story after we are gone.
I am not usually a short story person, BUT…these are wonderful. Each one is a good story and yet also a reminder of the things we take for granted in our lives.
I said short stories were not always my favorites and it's because many times short stories are just that, too short. They don’t have that solid middle to make the story seem plausible. I hate to keep saying that’s not true of these stories, but it’s not. These are stories that touch the heart, sweet at times and poignant at others.
I have read books by this author before. How someone can write tense “edge of your seat” thrillers and some of the most endearing yet meaningful short stories is beyond me. No matter, Snowden seems to be able to move your heart and/or your blood pressure in any genre.
