Review of "Infinity," a single story in a collection by Carla Golian
Journey through the Magical and Enchanting world of "Dreams of Love." 19 Poems dispersed throughout, act as interludes and are complimentary to 13 short stories; Tales of love, passion, romance and erotica. It reads like a novel.
This book is not for the fainthearted.
Infinity is the story of a chance (fated?) encounter between two authors. It's a classic love-at-first-sight tale. The story is sweet and the writing style is easy to get into which makes for a promising start.
I liked everything about this story except for the end. It kept going when it should have stopped. Part of the charm of short form fiction is that it's a snapshot. It doesn't have to go into a happily ever after or all the nitty gritty relationship details. It just is.
Still, it's an enjoyable read and the collection has bits of poetry interspersed which makes for a nice variety. Perfect for a summer afternoon of light reading.
