LoveReading View on Dancing with the Devil and other stories

This book is a collection of five short stories, each very different but with central theme of all of them desire and how it manifests itself in different ways. Each story is set in a different location and range in time from pre-second World War to the present day. Although I enjoyed all of the stories, there were a couple that stood out to me and I would have liked these to continue, so I could find out more about the characters and what they did next. Overall, this is a really enjoyable book and is nice and easy to dip in and out of, by reading a story at a time. I would really recommend this book.

Dancing with the Devil and other stories Synopsis

Dancing with the Devil is a collection of five short stories exploring the theme of desire, its manifestations and outcomes. Ranging in time from the late 1930s to the present day, the locations vary between England, France and the Russo-Polish border. In these diverse settings the stories explore the nature of personal relationships and how they are sometimes tested and exploited. And, as events unfold, the characters are not always what they seem. Propelled by the infinite complexity of human emotions, they are drawn inexorably into a web of desire, obsession, duplicity and revenge.
