I think that this is an eclectic collection of stories that’s well worth a read.
'Resistance, Revolution and Other Love Stories’ by K is a collection of short stories which, as the title already suggests, focuses on varying perspectives on love. From teen boys who both have feelings for the same girl to futuristic Big Brother-like worlds with automatons and a telling of one of my personal favourite Greek Myths Orpheus and Eurydice. Each story stands alone and so this book can be picked up and enjoyed from cover to cover, or when a reader is looking for a short story to get lost in. Although the theme throughout is love, not all the stories are uplifting, and each one has a distinct tone and atmosphere. I thought the stories were well written and found myself chuckling out loud to ‘Calamity Jane’. Set across the world and throughout time with one universal thread I think that this is an eclectic collection of stories that’s well worth a read.
