"There isn’t anything quite like holding love in your bare hands." I don't know....I don't know how to describe the feelings I've experienced while reading each page of this book. I am not easily carried away by anything but when such a creation comes your way you cannot help but ending up stari...

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night is a collection of short stories based around the concept of fairy tales and magical realism in the contemporary world. We have people who use animal hearts to gain love and affe...

Reader: please be aware that Jen Campbell did not like my review of her short stories which follows; in fact, she removed me as a friend here on Goodreads because of it. I would like it to be known - although it should already be obvious - that all of the reviews which I write express my own pers...

This is perhaps the strangest and most beautiful anthology I have ever read. Strange and beautiful in equal measure, as the two battle each other for dominance in this expertly delivered series of short tales. Each of the stories, contained within, had a bizarre focus and a whimsical vibe that mad...

I thoroughly enjoyed this - beautifully written, with a great mix of fantastical, surreal and more realist stories. My favourite story was probably 'Jacob', but the title story, 'The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night' was definitely a close second.

This was a strange book. It's full of modern day fairy tales. It's magical, its whimsical, there's a lovely way with the words but some of it is very disturbing. The first story Animals about buying animal hearts from the internet, heart transplants and even eating them just weirded me out.  I've...

I’ve been a fan of watching Jen Campbell’s histories of fairy tales on her YouTube channel for some time. She gives fascinating descriptions of the dark content and themes of these stories which have been passed down through generations and illuminates how the original tale is often far different...
