Simon Bever is an author I have newly discovered, and I have to admit I am thrilled I have. If you know anything about me by now book lovers you will know that I adore unique, memorable stories. All too often I read books that are good but sadly generic and so a few hours later after finishing a book like this, I do not even think of the book. Simon’s Cycle Shorts however is a book I thought about for weeks afterward because all of its stories fulfilled my intrigue about people and different peoples lives. As well as the stories being incredibly engaging, the author’s literature is phenomenal. I was worried that a collection of short stories might become too similar however each story was stand out and original and captivated me to read for hours. Simon Bever’s descriptive, and sometimes funny/witty writing was a delight to get lost in, and so, I have no choice but to award this stunning book a dazzling Five Stars!
