It’s anthology time! A review for Satisfaction Guaranteed.

Review

Satisfaction Guaranteed is a story that has been on my “to review” pile for quite some time now. Partly because I lacked time but also because anthologies are hard to review (as I mentioned before).

Satisfaction Guaranteed is an anthology that contains 11 story that is a versatile mix. It contains something for everyone and lovers of a diverse anthology will get their fill. There are two stories with transgender characters as well.

The anthology is a mix of contemporary, fantasy, paranormal stories and even a story with super heroes, if that s your thing. The thread that combines all these stories – with a nice twist on the title – is that the stories are all about the working class. Of course, all the stories are romantic shorts.

The writing of the stories is mixed. Some I found better than others, but that is to be expected in an anthology with so many stories. While I have seen better edited anthologies, the editing for this one was not as bad as I feared. I also found the stories to be well chosen. As said, there is a good variety.

There are some stories I liked more than others. One story that I really liked was There’s Light by Blaine D. Arden. A fantasy story about a lonely man called Marek who is a lighter, who doesn’t have all the magic he wants nor the life, but things start looking up when Hennan asks him on a date.

All in all, there will be stories you’ll like better than others, but it’s a nice anthology.

Why you should read it: Fans of themed anthologies will get their fill with Satisfaction Guaranteed and it is one I can recommend!
