Review of My First Published Book

Postby singphantom7 » Sat Dec 07, 2013 4:53 pm

Hello. I wanted to share one particularly overwhelming review. It's my first book, and I thought such a review might draw some interest for those of you who'd like to try out a collection of dark, disturbing, bad-ass feminist fiction.



Dec 06, 2013 H. Rose rated it 5 of 5 stars

‘Sweet Violent Femmes’ is a collection of short, almost feministic, stories by emerging author and freelance short story writer Holly M. Kothe. Hallmarks of her work are biting, incisive prose that is highly descriptive, conveys ambiance, in careful construction of scene and setting, which makes the outer world slide away. Soon the reader is vicariously living the life of a scary, confident, assertive heroine with a white hot virulent rage-on that won’t be sated (at least not until vengeance has been wrought). You won’t read these stories; you will experience these horrific little tales of debauchery, revenge, self-righteous anger, self-abuse, and female aggression directed at former victimizers. There is a dark and disturbing quality in the heroines of these pieces, which is highly reminiscent of the female protagonist in Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. There is also a Poe-like poetic and disquieting feature, a willingness to take the road less traveled, minus the Hollywood ending, that is rarely seen among modern writers. The generally shocking and self-righteous, eye-for-an-eye ideology held by each of the female protagonists of the short stories may put some readers off. Tightly-paced, compelling, and deeply unsettling, aficionados of the genre, or courageous readers willing to sample new literary fare, will be seduced by Kothe’s writing, characters, settings and plots. ‘Sweet Violent Femmes’ will be un-put-downable for fans of the macabre and those who don’t mind anti-heroines who, for the most part, destroy themselves in wrenching retribution from unrepentant men. Kothe is most definitely a writer-to-watch.(less)

The book is available in Kindle or print, links in my signature. Thanks!
