Anmeldelser

Generelt er jeg ikke så begejstret for short stories, men jeg kunne godt lide disse to. Da de er så korte, er det svært ikke at afsløre for meget, så jeg vil ikke sige så meget om handlingen, men Girl in the mirror handler om valg og spejle dækket af sort. Mens The memory maker handler om minder, hvad der er rigtigt, sorg og hvad man vælger at huske
