Blurb: In Transylvania’s History A to Z, a collection of 100-word stories sprinkled with breathtaking photographs, Patricia Furstenberg uses the confining rules of the 100-word story form to stirringly capture Transylvania, Romania’s historical and geographical region.
Transylvania’s unspoiled natural beauty, its tumultuous history, and the people who touched it are depicted in this book.
Written as snapshots, tall tales, and descriptive narratives, these 100-word stories are the espresso of creative writing.
A – Z, 100-Wors Stories are inspired by Transylvania’s history, from the Paleolithic Period to WW1
Each 100 Words Story is followed by a brief historical reference
Review: Not my usual kind of read, but I was given a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
It’s a mix of fiction and non-fiction, it kind of melds together for those who enjoy both worlds. The 100 word stories keep it short, sweet and to the point to keep the reader moving on to the next story, learning about the history of the beautiful place of Transylvania.
Again, not my usual read, I’m not real into non-fiction. I want to escape the world, but it was able to keep me interested enough to keep reading. I think it was mostly how short the stories were because I never really did all that well in history when I was in school.
All of this gives an insight into the beauty of Transylvania with the stories, history and the beautiful pictures that the author provides. Not something I would read again, probably, but something that I would recommend for those wanting a quick and educational read.
I’d give this a 2.5, but since I can’t do that on the stars for this review or on Goodreads or Amazon, I’ll go ahead and round it up to 3 stars.
Thank you for reading my review.
