SOME REVIEWS of Watching Charlotte Brontë Die

Mystery does arise in many different places in this collection of nine stories from somewhat intriguing realities. Be prepared for the unexpected.’ Ingrid Stevens

***

‘I love Ellie Stevenson’s writing – short simple sentences, often with a bitter bite to them. To take an easy one, from “Anna Grail”:

I thought my chances were exceedingly slim. Unlike me.

‘This collection of short stories contains a variety of tales with a sting in the tail – my favourites are probably “Anna Grail”, The Window Box” and “The Last Bus Home”.

The collection winds up with an excerpt from “Ship of Haunts” (the other Titanic story) which I have already read twice. I enjoyed the excerpt so much that I’ll probably read it all again. Ellie Stevenson’s stories are rich with little details, whereas her writing is deceptively simple, and the combination grows on you. A good read and worth re-reading.’  Valeria Salvemini
