Unsavory Delicacies

Unsavory Delicacies - Russell Brooks,  Margot Blackman,  Victory  Crayne Concise, straight to the point, and yet gripping and interesting. That would be how i would describe the three short stories as a whole in a collection. The collection itself is very short, it only took me a short amount of time to read because, let's be honest, i couldn't put it down after just one story, now could I? No. I admit though that it's a bit difficult to write about the stories without giving away anything. So I'll give you what you need to know ;)The first story, Crème Brûlée, was admittedly my favourite of the three. A sneaky female protagonist who gets things turned upside down for her by the end of the story? Does love. The second story... haha, there's a tagline that says not to read the second story while eating. Yeah, don't. Just don't. The twist at the end was shocking to say the least. I for one wasn't expecting it at all. Whatsoever... I was reading it during work and gasped pretty audibly, but my boss didn't notice, thank goodness. The third story sees the return of a character that we saw in the first story and i have to admit, i was impressed with the authors ability to make me care about a character in so few pages. I only got to see the tiniest bit of this character's, well, character, and yet i found myself liking him anyway.All three stories are either set in, or deal with restaurants and food. A clever way to tie the three together. I enjoyed all three stories and was impressed by how much i did even though they were so short. 4/5 stars. A nice little escape. Quite enjoyable.
