Curious: Are My Stories About Morals? by Peggy Jo Henry is a collection of short stories and poems. The book touches on Peggy’s life and how bipolar disorder has affected it. She bares all in her book, from her most intimate thoughts ranging from suicide to her views on the state of the world at large. It’s not all doom and gloom, as motivation lies waiting within each page for the reader who is feeling down. This book is about life and how precious it is. Her book is part mystery hunt too, as various clues are provided throughout which will help unravel the author’s riddle. Short stories on subjects most people shy away from come together here with a brain teaser to give you an experience found in no other book.
The concept behind the book is well-intentioned and aims to entertain the reader with an unorthodox form of storytelling. Peggy Jo Henry gambled when making the book interactive. It paid off in my case as I had to search for the clues while trying to solve the mystery and the whole play detective bit is something I enjoyed. Her writing never strayed too far from the norms of storytelling, and I found her short stories to be entertaining. I also liked her conversational and unfiltered style of writing. Peggy wrote from the heart and that made me take more interest in her point of view and character. Her humor was great too, as it wasn't a forced style that plagues most books nowadays. She has a knack for writing simple lines that can crack you up. Curious: Are My Stories About Morals? aimed at providing a new reading experience, but did it? Well, my rating should hopefully answer that.
