Reader’s Thoughts

Some brief extracts of reviews for ‘The Storyteller Speaks‘:

‘Perry’s debut book is a beautiful read.’

‘Each story is a core sample of a human moral issue, a history of resiliency and loss, exposed to the light.’

‘Annika Perry is a writer in tune with our deepest responses to the human condition, capturing the nuances of our psyche.’

‘A full gamut of emotions is here, including love, grief, anger and redemption. The stories are moving, uplifting, sometimes dark, sometimes amusing.’

‘This is a collection to savour and a book that fulfils its promise to win your heart.’

‘I hang on every word, wondering how it will unfold. I want to know–but not too fast because I’m enjoying the verbal journey. I need to savour every paragraph, every parsed thought, every surprise conclusion.’

‘She has her magical way of playing with words to pull the reader in, but keep one hanging on until the end. However, not all of her writing in this book is lighthearted; some is pretty dark. There were times when I smiled, moments when I was horrified, and occasions for tears.’

‘The stories of everyday life go straight to the heart; some nostalgic, some reflective, some uplifting, and some heartwarming.’

‘Annika Perry is a natural storyteller, a wordsmith of great talent. She writes at times with the language of a poet, at other times with the sharp and daring strokes of Picasso.’

‘She’s a beautiful writer who knows how to draw the reader into a story. I’ll look forward to more work in the future from this talented author.’

‘Her descriptions shine.’

‘They are emotional pieces. Moving. Honest. Filled with love and imagination.’

‘I rode emotional highs and lows along with the characters, swept up in their tales. Some are simple, some complex, all engaging.’
