Realistic. Short story fans willing to give a debut collection a chance are those most likely to enjoy Alexander MacLeod’s Light Lifting. Each of the seven stories presents characters and life situations that can seem ordinary. With MacLeod’s writing skill, these realistic situations, especially in dealing with adversity, can seem deceptively simple. He tells compact stories that develop the identity of characters quickly and weaves in themes of hope and redemption. He finds ways to plumb the psychological lives of his characters to place them in settings that lead to behavior that brings readers a deeper understanding of human nature.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
