A Moment on the Edge ~ #Mystery #Anthology #BookReview

6411705I’m not going to pretend that this was some life changing anthology, every story a priceless gem to learn from and cherish for a lifetime. I will say, however, that despite the less than stellar rating on Goodreads (3.86), this is not an anthology you want to read unless you are looking for more authors to add to your ‘to read’ list.

I think that this anthology is underrated (and under read) because many of the stories (and authors) are older. (I’d hate to think it’s because all the authors are women.) Some readers may consider them out of date. But can you ever really say that Shirley Jackson’s talent for creating suspense and Susan Glaspell’s biting insight are any less enjoyable because their stories were written so long ago? Not in my opinion. Not every story in this anthology is great, but there were many that I enjoyed, and I’m glad I read it. 5 stars!
