Robert Louis Stevenson – The Pavilion on the Links [REVIEW]

Title: The Pavilion on the Links

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

Type: Fiction

Page Count/Review Word Count: 94

Rating: 3.5/5  

This short but sweet little story has a lot going for it, although I will say that it’s held back by Stevenson’s writing style and the fact that all of the good stuff kicks in right at the end.

It’s basically a tale of love, theft and revenge, which teaches the reader that all Italians are sinister and untrustworthy. Maybe don’t take that lesson to heart, though.

Rattle – Issue #81 [REVIEW]

Title: Issue #81

Author: Rattle

Type: Poetry/Non-Fiction

Page Count/Review Word Count: 110

Rating: 3.5/5  

This is the latest instalment of Rattle’s literary magazine, and it’s just as enjoyable as the last one. I only actually have it because I submitted some work to them, but I’m glad that I did. They’re publishing exactly the kind of modern, free verse poetry that I like to read.

Is it perfect? No. There are plenty of poems that flop for me, but that’s the beauty of reading poetry. I think there’s a little something here for everybody, and so if you’re into poetry then go check it out.
