      Disadvantages

      Fay Weldon is best known for her wonderful best selling book " The Lives and Loves of a She-devil". However she has also written many other novels as well as children's books, short story collections and non-fiction novels. The title of Weldon's book, "Wicked women", is a bit misleading. The book is not only a collection of short stories about wicked women, but also about wicked men, wicked children, tales from the other side, tales of love pain and good cheer and going to the therapist. The book is a collection of short stories, some of which have already been published in magazines such as Radio Times, Cosmopolitan and The Times. This collection consists of 16 stories and is about the same length as a standard novel. I like short story collections as a break between big books and, picking this up in a charity shop, I thought it would be perfect. I have to say though that I didn't really enjoy it. Most of the stories concentrated on family lives and the way people and their past interact. The stories were a bit vague with absolutely no character development, which is possible in short stories. The endings were even worse. The stories didn't even end they just drifted to a standstill. I was left wondering what happened to the characters in the story and feeling very unsatisfied. I'm glad I got this book from a charity for the grand total of 50p. I will be recycling it in my nearest charity shop shortly.
