If you don’t have time to indulge in a lengthy reading session but can’t imagine a day without reading, “The Man and the Crow” by Rebecca Crunden is a read for you. I read it in one sitting between dozens of things I had to do this weekend. And it has provided me with a much-needed escape from the hectic running and planning.
The short story is full of magic, tension, unexpected twists, and characters outside the accustomed scope. I really enjoyed the twist on the very first pages of the story that took the plot in a direction the reader in no way could predict.
Although short, the story felt multi-layered and well-thought-out. It ignited my imagination and I definitely would like to read more about the world the author has introduced us to. Still, at the same, time, the storyline felt complete and the ending satisfying.
This was the first book I’ve read by this author, but I can definitely say it won’t be the last.
