Abandoned: Three Short Stories by Jim Heskett is a compilation of three unique stories. Meet the man who gets dumped because he has no ambition. But with the use of cocaine and a heap of LEGO pieces, can he prove his ex-girlfriend wrong? Meet the man who is in love with a stylist at the local hair salon. Can he gather up the courage to give her a message or will he be content with just peering through the window at her? Finally, come to a party that will start out as a simple get-together of friends but soon turns into something a little more dangerous when alcohol, drugs and dancers collide in violence, and sanity and reason desert the party goers. Step inside the lives of three very different people and experience life as you have never seen it before.
Abandoned: Three Short Stories by Jim Heskett was an excellent book. On occasion, I like to read short stories rather than having to concentrate on a longer more involved storyline, and these were a good compilation. Each one was just the right length and contained all the elements a good storyteller possesses to put into their work. Each story was unique, imaginative and had a tense tale to tell, but the common thread of abandonment running through all three drew them together neatly. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would love to read more from Mr Heskett, especially if they are anything like this.
