Girl in the MirrorShort stories are not my type, I always pick novels over short stories. But I am a huge fan of Cecelia Ahern’s writing so how can I not pick up her book? I must say while I enjoyed the two stories, I was left feeling unsatisfied, not because they were badly written but because the stories were so gripping I wished they were longer. More explanation could have been good. I wonder why she didn’t think about writing a novel with this material.

First story is about the girl in the mirror, it gave me creeps, I felt as if it ended abruptly. If this short story was of novel length it could have been twisted in several ways and I would have enjoyed reading a horror novel. Second story is about ‘The Memory Maker’ a man who invented a machine to hold onto his past. I didn’t understand the message at the end completely but it was a good read. I would prefer if these two stories were separate novels.

My rating: 3 out of 5. If you are a Cecelia Ahern fan or you like to read short stories then this book is recommended for you.
