Review: Life Seemed Good, But

Life Seemed Good, But

A COLLECTION OF QUIRKY SHORT STORIES

by Richard Bell

A picture of life in and around the Mystee Forest as viewed by a variety of talking animals, strange characters, and the author’s twisted perception of reality. Imagine a cross between Aesop’s Fables and the Brothers Grimm.

REVIEW

5 out of 5

Life Seemed Good, But is absolutely brilliant. It’ll make you laugh out loud (literally). This book is quirky, and can bring a smile to anyone’s face (unless you hate humor). Some stories are a bit odder than others, but if one doesn’t strike your fancy there are plenty more to choose from. They range in size from less than a page to a few, and whether you want to read this cover to cover in one sitting (like I did), or read in pieces, is entirely up to you. Especially right now, when the world seems a little dark, I think everyone could use some light and laughter in their lives. This book brings that.

About the Author

Born in Chicago, grew up (sort of) before computers and cell phones. Have worked in a wide variety of jobs: warehousing, delivery driving, social services and finally office work. I started writing as therapy to treat depression during a dark time in life. My book is dedicated to all who have cared for a loved one suffering from a life-threatening illness and some of my proceeds go to cancer research.
Otherwise I’m just an average guy.
