Girl In The Mirror – by Cecelia Ahern

27 05 2015

I’ve always prided myself on having read every novel Cecelia Ahern has written, but I hadn’t ever gotten around to the two short stories she released about four years ago.

These definitely were a step away from her usual light chick lit, here’s a brief bit of blurb for each story.

Girl in the mirror
This was a lot darker than the usual, a story about a grandma who has all the mirrors in her house covered in dark fabric, and finding out the reasoning behind that. It got pretty creepy, probably best not read before bed!

The Memory Maker
Another experimental thing going on here in that the main character was only ever referred to as “he”, and the story jumped all around in time, so got pretty confusing in places. It was about a guy who had created a machine able to put memories into peoples heads. I think of the two I preferred this one, but they were definitely both a bit odd!
