Two Turtle Doves by Richard Wall #BookReview #ShortStory @HenryRoiPR #Fiction — Rain’n’books
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A gritty and harsh short story, Two Turtle Doves is sure to leave you with goosebumps. The dark tale begins deceptively but explodes into a young boy’s thoughts on revenge against the guys who bully him. The revenge scenarios that he creates inside his mind give a glimpse to the reader into the darkness that is hidden inside his soul. But once the guitar named El Diablo lands into the picture, this short story explodes into one of revenge and murder.
Two Turtle Doves reflects the lives of the rock stars of the yesteryears whose life have spiraled down to drugs and then sad deaths after achieving the fame that they have never dreamed of. Hardly a 20 min read, Two Turtle Doves is freaking awesome in that it brings into focus many of those dreaded topics like abuse, bullying, revenge, and gruesome killings for such a short read.
Many thanks to Henry Roi PR and the author for a chance to read and review this book. All opinions are expressed voluntarily.
