Nothing Is Strange-Mike Russell Book Review

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review

Once again I swan dive into the depths of the strange and alluring world of Mike Russell. I chat with satisfaction, have a little dance with paranoia and dine with diversity over a roof top view of the universe. Prepare to have you mind blown, literally. You will find pieces of your brain scattered beautifully upon the page. It’s quite liberating, to expand the mind and turn those cogs manually for once. To see behind the facade of everyday life, ask those questions and open Pandora’s box.

Strange Secrets by Mike Russell is a collection of seven short stories which invites you to discover the magical and the marvelous. Startlingly inventive and constantly entertaining, these unique, vital and vividly realized stories will take you to places you have never been before.

Like his previous work, I loved reading these short stories. The stories have crazy plotlines, for example, what if one day the puppet becomes the puppeteer or whatif you come across a pool which pulls out your reflection in flesh and bones?

You will feel like the cat in this image but in a good way. During the course of reading every story, your mind is in a state of constant wonder as to what to expect next. These stories are completely unpredictable and keep you on the edge of your seat. The stories make no sense per se but dependent on what the reader is able…

Strange Secrets By Mike Russell (Review)

Allow me to pose a question to you dear readers. If a tree falls in the middle of a forest and there’s no-one there to hear it, does it still make a sound? What if that forest is filled with horse-chestnut trees? What if it was oak? Can you hear my voice ask these questions? Even though you’re reading my words on a screen. How do I sound? Squeaky? Husky? How does sound exist if there is no one around to hear it? How does anything exist if no one is there to witness it? Is your brain melting into a big puddle of slop just thinking about all these questions? Me too, let’s breathe and have a cuppa. That’s better. Prepare yourself for I have an extraordinary read to share with you.

I am extremely delighted to be reviewing on the blog today Strange Secrets By Mike Russell

Strange Medicine by Mike Russell

Dyslexic Reader

I was asked to read and review Strange Medicine by Jay at Strangebooks, for a fair and honest review.

Strange Medicine is a selection of short stories from the strange mind of Mike Russell.

The Titles for the stories are;

  • Flock
  • Seventy-Two Bricks
  • Telephone
  • Mime
  • Mr Dennis and the universe
  • The Spy
  • Brain
  • Shish

My favorite of the short stories is Brain about a man the lives his life all about rationality, and it the end life is more than rationality. The stories are not long but they way that they are written conveys the evolution of the character.

I like reading Mike Russell books you never known which direction they will take, and they make me think more about the meaning of the stories.

I give this book 4 out of 5

Strange Medicine by Mike Russell

Little Things Big Difference

“….there are a distressing number of people who wish to deceive you into believing things that are not real,into things that are supposedly invisible…do not be fooled…”- PG69 of 📚 Strange Medicine by Mike Russell.➡️I was pretty skeptical when I first received the email from Jay Snelling @jay9813 to review this book 📚 “Strange Medicine”,as I have never felt fervently for any sort of fantasy/surreal reads. I wondered if I would ever be able to comprehend the read 📖 or interpret a review 📝 based on my understanding. After more than a month of scrutinizing this read, I can finally say that Strange Medicine has officially started me on a quest for more fantasy reads! Strange Medicine comprises of 8 eccentric short stories. Published by an Indie press based in Brighton,England, these stories are written whimsically,whereby the endings are all very much unforeseen. My favorite of all was of course…

HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW

This is my second book by this author, the first being Strange Medicine. Both books are very similar in respect of they have short sharp story blasts of pure weird and utterly crazy brilliance. There is nothing like them, none that you could possibly say I have read something similar before, just uniqueness. It is like watching mime but in writing, I just couldn’t take my eyes from the pages because I felt I would miss something if I did.

Some stories are very sad, or they feel like a never-ending circle that you know will just go on after…
