My thoughts: This is a collection of flash fiction that provides a mere glimpse into the lives of morose and disturbed characters.
In “My Soul to Keep,” a menacing doll stalks a man after burying the body of a little girl. I especially enjoyed the bleak irony in it.
“Sailing Away” is exemplary of a writer’s poetic prose to human compassion.
Divergent Dreams is open to wide interpretation with its ambiguous style and complex metaphors. At first, I thought it may have had a religious element, but then I felt that it was more sci-fi; I wasn’t sure. Obviously it had worlds where anything was possible. Quite frankly I was more puzzled than intrigued by these short tales.
My rating: 2.5 stars
