A beautiful supernatural tale you're sure to rememberFaith Mortimer is a writer that clearly has a firm grasp of her craft. The Bamboo Mirror is beautifully written with lush descriptions and believable characters. Diana is a young girl starting out her first day at a Singapore boarding school. Almost from the moment she arrives in this strange place filled with people she doesn't know, she is drawn into a relationship with David and Lorna, a brother and sister who seem very much out of place an [...]
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book and for the most part it didn't disappoint. I wasn't fond of the last two stories but the other ones were great. very interesting and would love to see some of these made into full novels
Really enjoyed this collection!
I liked some of the stories, and they're well written, but these weren't really my style.
Excellent! A real page turner, which had me guessing. Have read two other books by Faith Mortimer and now looking forward to reading more
GoodSeveral short stories. Well written. Liked the characters in each. Each ending left me wondering what the rest of the story could be.
The short stories in "The Bamboo Mirror" are fine, but they break no new ground, which is a shame because they are reasonably well-written, clear, and with some settings that would, and do on some level, draw in the reader. Six short stories, teasers for four novels, and links to other writers complete this slim anthology. The "Widow's Weeds" started to paint a strong picture of a place few frequent, but the thin mystery ends before we can be totally submerged in the place and culture and story. [...]
The Bamboo Mirror is a collection of six short stories and I'm honestly ambivalent about them. I like mysteries, which most of these are, but something just didn't do it for me. The title story is possibly the best of them, but as a whole, they didn't do it for me. I don't recall most of the plots of any of them Glancing through, my main thought is that the tragedy aspect somehow just doesn't sit well with me, possibly my frame of mind, possibly not, but well Faith Mortimer is an average writer, [...]
I think the only mystery in this book is "Where are the mysteries?" The first is a cheat, the second is "solved" by a minor character, who tells it as a story, the third ends up as a confession in the last few paragraphs and I haven't finished the fourth and fifth yet. The author has a tenuous grasp of punctuation, and the only thing interesting to me has been the slang. I like mysteries and I like supernatural stories. This wasn't either.
I don't what I was expecting, but this collection of stories was a bit disappointing. It's an eclectic mix of mysteries ranging from someone who committed murder to a school girl running into weird a mystery to someone solving a murder. Very quickly written and not satisfying.
Some of the stories were predictable. Others were well written so a three star middle of the road average score.
This is a collection of short stories. If I could give this book negative stars, I would. The writing was juvenile, pretentious, formulaic, and trite.
