Stories From the City Sidewalk

eBook (PDF), 177 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: $2.29
One man adores the city, spending all his time homeless, pressed up against its benches scattered about the sidewalks. Another man feels the weight of the city, and must listen to someone he despises to learn how to handle the pressure. Two really awkward gangsters use the city to make a couple bucks, and one girl tries the dating scene while being completely broke. This collection of stories details people in all different parts of life- some confused, some even more confused. In the city, we feel the imposing power of its presence. But what we lack is a little piece of the city's power in ourselves.

    This is quite a fascinating little book. I breezed through it in a couple of days, and really appreciated the depth of each character. For short stories, you get a lot out of each one, some being only a few pages and some much longer, being as deeper in characterization as full novels! The best story is the one about a babysitter. She's very young but seems to have grown up so much, and comes to realize things about the world that are eerily realistic and quite eye-opening to read a character so thought-out in just a short story and over twenty or so pages. There's also a strong overarching theme that ties the stories together. Some stories really made me laugh, and some made me almost cry, and I didn't quite expect that emotional range. I am really happy to see some independent writing on here that is quite fascinating and of high quality. Thanks for the read and I hope Ryan continues writing, as he has lots of talent and I believe this could be just the beginning to a fantastic... More > career in writing.< Less
