Title: Filmic Cuts: Sunshine and Lollipops
Author: Oli Jacobs
Page Count/Review Word Count: 172
I’ve been on an Oli Jacobs hype of late, working my way through as much of his back catalogue as I can track down. He’s a local author (we both live in High Wycombe, and he even has a book out called Strange Days in High Wycombe), and he’s also an indie, so it’s nice to show some support.
I’m not going to pretend that this book is faultless. The layout is a little weird with no justification, spacing between paragraphs and no page numbers, and there are also occasional grammar mistakes including one memorable “their” versus “there” error. But as long as you can get past that, you’re in for a good time.
The stories were great, and each one of them was memorable, which I find is a rarity for a collection of short stories. Jacobs makes for a great short story writer.
