The Passport That Does Not Pass Ports dIch I am sure have been succinctly and creatively reviewed than I could have achieved plus Io not give spoilersI think the only exception would be the Birds the last story in this collected edition and one which was the basis of Hitchcocks classic The reason why I focus on this one is that I can be a little lenient with my no spoilers since I
am sure everything either heard or seen the film plus I had a rather strange experience sure everything has either heard or the film plus I had a rather strange experience morning which brought the story in to focusI long thought that the scene in the film with the crows in the play ground was a little contrived stay with me you will get there as it was well know that Hitchcock would not mind bending a few rules if it meant a better cinematic experience Well I thought that the way the birds sounded and acted was a little falsethat was till this morning when outside the house where there is a very large tree a large number of crows started to form and yes they sounded exactly like that I later found out they were hounding a Red Kite which was circling but still it The Arcav Princes Captive (Arcav Alien Invasion, did bring that school house scene to mindAnd so I set about reading the stories and considering the book was 300 pages plus I forgot how east it was to getrawn in to her workEnough to say that the story from this book is far powerful and harrowing by the simplicity of which Ms Southern Women at the Seven Sister Colleges Feminist Values and Social Activism 1875 1915 du Maurierescribes the events It is times like these that remind me that re reading a book sometimes can be even striking that reading it for the first time I am a huge fan of short story collections Instead of reading a chapter or two while waiting for the teachers Manual African American Literature doctor you can knock out a whole story This collection wasn t the best of the best but itid entertain Don t Look Now 4 Stars A husband and wife on holiday after a family loss find themselves in the middle of much than they expectedIt makes sense that this story is the one that had a movie made from it It had great buildup and the ending was one that the reader wouldn t expect A Border Line Case 3 Stars A Agricultural Innovation in the Early Islamic World daughterecides to track DYA (1933-1939) (Libros sobre el Opus Dei) down a friend from her father s past and learns that some searches are better left undoneThe ending was obvious from the beginning but it was entertaining I liked that it wasn t asescription heavy as some of the other stories in this collection and that it read uick The Breakthrough 3 Stars A man sent to assist with a computer learns that science experiences in secluded locations never end wellThe beginning and middle of this one had me hooked but the ending left a lot to be Big Book of AA All 12 Steps Understand and Complete One Step At A Time in Recovery with Alcoholics Anonymous 12 of 12 Books desired This was the one story I would have liked to see in novel form with story at the back end The Way of the Cross 2 Stars A group travelingiscover many truths about themselves while visiting a holy
liked the idea behind this story but bored with the telling of it It was way to New Writing, New Approaches (African Literature Today, Vol. 12) descriptive and took up too much of my reading time The way the characters were written was impressive but the excessiveetail killed it for me Not After Midnight 1 Star A vacationing teacher has a gut feeling about another couple s invitation to spend time togetherThis one was overly Culture and Development in Africa (Comparative Studies in African/Caribbean Literature Series) dramatic and had this ridiculous buildup to nothing I went back and read the beginning multiple times to figure out what I had missed and could not figure it out It was like heid something shameful and everyone knew about it and left his job because of it I am not sure what that piece had to The Alien Huntress Series Alien Huntress do with the rest of the story and assume I misunderstood something about it.

Such As Grief Aas grief a often not spoken of back in the ay Each of these stories has a moral message within its words and beautiful worldly imagery and excellent suspense aside each story has something new to offer Having seen the 1973 film adaptation of Don t Look Now many years ago which completely freaked me out I thought this would somewhat take the gloss off the reading experience simply because it contained one of the most shocking finales in history but thankfully I needn t have worried Although the other four short stories in this collection are every bit as chilling it s Don t Look Now that stands out from the rest as a terrifying masterpiece of slow burning tension which is spine chilling as hell but also tender and intimate a perfect istillation of the confusion and Graph Drawing: Algorithms for the Visualization of Graphs desire that attend grief for a married couple which as the story progresses adventures forward through the winding streets of Venice with the logic of a nightmare After theeath of their BISEXUAL NEIGHBOR daughter Venice toegree becomes a sort of haven for the healing process well that s until a seriously creepy old psychic clairvoyant predicts some rather Igniting the Internet disturbing happenings This is in essence a haunting ghost story which looks at the close affinity of a loving couple and the emotional reactions of losing a child And it s here I will stop for reasons of not giving too much away All the stories are in their own way refusals of comfort with the one thing in common being that unpleasant things happen to people and in one way or another there is little chance of escapism Du Maurier certainly knows how to hold ones attention you may know what s coming but not necessarily in theirection that is anticipated and that s a strong attribute to haveYou could be settled into the most comfy chair on the planet but once she starts to weave her web of unnerving horror
