One thought on “Murmurs: Gathered Stories Vol. One

  1. Frank

    MURMURS is the perfect title of Caleb J Ross story collection These are fairly short bursts of that unique domestic fiction that Ross not only has a penchant for writing but also executes to a level that could earn him the moniker of Father of Domestic Fiction If another writer tells stories quite like this, I do not know of him or her Please pardon my ignorance if I am wrong.The stories do indeed echo the sentiment of the book s title Quick little tales, murmurs, troubling little yarns each wit [...]

    Howdark Very, very dark I m feeling extremely sad right now Short stories are favorites of mine, but I ve never read short stories like this I see why it s called domestic grotesque It focuses on family problems It s kind of depressing, so this compilation of short stories is successful in the way that it invokes emotion A ton of emotion Reading Caleb Ross notes after each short story was like taking a break and pumping my self up for the next one It was really interesting to see what Ross was t [...]

  3. Heather

    I was excited to read this as I really enjoyed the 1st book by this author I read However, I wish I hadn t I am just not a huge fan of short stories normally They just do not give me enough to sink my teeth into.I found this very depressing for the most part If you like short stories that are dark I guess mostly domestic fiction you will like this book It was not something I would ever read again.Honesbecauseuase I like the book I read 1st so much I am still a little biased Normally this would h [...]

    It s usually hard to give a star rating to a collection of short stories because, even when being all written by the same author, all the stories never have an identical rating So 3 stars is the average I heard these stories described as dark, demented, and disturbingl of which is true Definitely not for the faint at heart However, they were also very well written, thought provoking and powerful.

  5. Todd

    This guy is wicked smart and now I wish I could remember how I got turned on to him in the first place.I love to read edgy up and coming indie authors that are fresh and haven t sold their souls to a publisher yet Caleb is definitely still telling his own stories his own way, and these short stories are a great introduction into the mind of Caleb Ross.I can t wait to dive into Stranger Will and see what he can do with a novel.

  6. Cathleen

    This book was a surprise to me The stories were dark and twisted Though I normally do not read stories of this nature, I enjoyed reading these The author has such a way with words and sentence structure that I felt drawn into the stories The base emotions brought to life throughout this book are very compelling I salute you as a writer CathyP.S I also want to thank the author Caleb J Ross for providing me with an edownload copy of his book.

  7. Virginia

    Dark, Demented, Disturbing pretty much describes this book Some of the stories just abruptly end Several times I was left saying to myself WHAT Thats the ending On a good note I did like the authors notes at the end of each story.Overall this just wasn t my cup of tea.

    Caleb J Ross is not only an author, he is also a Youtuber, specifically a Booktuber, who makes amusing book reviews and rants When I subscribed to his channel, I was sent a message offering free downloads of his short story collections on Smashwords.I m not going into insane details of these short stories like I did with Shifu, because most of the stories shared similar themes and were pretty short However, that doesn t interfere with the quality of the short stories Murmurs is actually one of t [...]
