I selected this book to cover 2 prompts for challenges this year. The primary reason I picked it was to address the challenge of reading an author you previously disliked. I had tried a book by J D Robb a few years ago and just could not get interested in the futuristic aspect of the story. I had selected it at the time because it was a mystery book and that is my preferred genre of choice. I put the book down as a DNF and never intended to read it again. This short story contained in the anthology was quite enjoyable and I may give the series another try as I did like the characters in the book.
The other prompt this covered was read an anthology. I had not every read an anthology outside of a textbook for literature coursework. I found myself enjoying the sampling of the works by the different authors and will possibly seek out more works by them. I enjoyed finding the common thread in the stories as they related to the Alice in Wonderland theme. I kind of created a scavenger hunt aspect to the book
All in all I am glad I selected this book this year and it is one of the few 5 star books I have reviewed.
Down the Rabbit Hole by J.D. Robb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Very enjoyable anthology of stories
I did not know what to expect when I picked this book out at the library. I ended up thoroughly enjoying all of the stories within. Most had a reference or alluded to Alice this n Wonderland. Some were romance based but all seemed to be about finding your moral truth and becoming a great partner for your relationship. I look forward to trying individual works of these authors
