    1. An interesting collection of poetry and stories that make you feel like you're in a dream-like state. This is exactly how I felt when watching the movie Spirited Away. I think certain books need a re-read and this is certainly one of them, because the work created here is multi-layered, you will literally need to read between the lines. Recommended.

    2. I took this short story collection on a long journey with me this weekend, and it seemed entirely fitting, especially when sitting on a train reading ‘Timely Journey’ - one of my personal favourites, which had me absolutely gripped, and afterwards left me uneasily pondering. This was perhaps for me one of the most original in a collection of quite unique stories. The early stories are quite lyrical and self-focused, and although skilfully drawn, I found them less absorbing than the depiction [...]

    3. I'm not usually a fan of short stories, because by the time you've really immersed yourself in the plot and characters, it's over. I wasn't sure what I was going to get with "When Disconnected," but there were parts that I enjoyed very much.Most of the stories are light on dialogue, using visual imagery to pain worlds as varied and disparate as a dystopian wasteland, an alien world, a commuter train or a school field trip. Christine Vann does an excellent job painting these portraits, telling st [...]

    4. ‘When Disconnected’ by Christine Vann is a unique collection of short stories that really get the reader thinking. I have never really read short stories before, but I found this collection compelling. Whilst they span several different genres, they each present a fascinating look at human reactions to startling scenarios. After each one, I found myself pausing to think, ‘what would I do, if it were me?’ These are stories which prompt daydreams and musings.The collection begins with ‘E [...]

    5. Christine Vann’s When Disconnected explores the emotional landscape of humanity at its extremes and in its essentials. This is the work of a talented author who employs a balanced style, and careful use of perspective in each story to evoke in the reader both a personal reaction and raise perceptual questions. The challenge this work faces is category. Authors who explore the human landscape in this manner are often placed in speculative fiction, fantasy, science fiction and literature. Often [...]

    6. Highly recommend to readers who enjoy literary fiction in bite sized pieces. I often struggle to rate short story collections for 2 reasons, a, the quality varies and b, I often feel I want more depth. Neither applied in these stories, the quality of each story is high (no fillers here) and within each story the author touched a deep nerve of human nature. The collection runs smoothly and each story complements the others.Thoughts that ran through my mind when reading - unique, imaginative, pass [...]

    7. Rhoda D'Ettore's Reviews - I borrowed this on Kindle Unlimited.Hold on to your kindle as you take a journey through various tales, each unique in story and message. This short story collection has something to entertain everyone, and will push the boundaries of your imagination. From a forest of shadows to a passenger train, the settings are diverse.As one reviewer rightly described Shill and Shadows to portray a fairy tale like quality, I found Timely Journey to be a homage to Twilight Zone and [...]

    8. Most of these tales take place in a mildly fantastical universe, although a couple keep their feet on the ground for a more ‘normal’ feel. One story has some odd sort of aliens. Another involves a sort of end of the world scenario seen through the eyes of a woman who has outlived her peers. There’s a method of not quite time traveling that de-ages a small group of people. There’s also a mostly normal school field trip that ends in an oddly bizarre way–it felt a little out of place to m [...]

    9. Disconnected is an excellent title for this collection of short stories, which has been written in a series of different genres. There is a common theme of alienation, but in an interesting variety of settings; A boy not quite fitting in at school, a girl trying to survive in an hostile environment or a woman looking for her cat in the wonderfully Gothic ‘Shill and Shadows’. The author has used a number of different genres like futurism, realism and quite dream like narrative, but they all f [...]

    10. Each story has its own voice and spins its own yarn. Each story is well written and imaginative. Somehow each story felt connected to the next, which is odd taking the book’s title into consideration.When Disconnected is a wonderful collection of short stories that does a great job delving deep into the human psyche. My biggest complain about this book is that it was a little too short. I would have loved to read more of these thought-provoking stories, but it’s definitely a great read for a [...]

    11. This set of short stories is quite diverse, but each tale makes you think. I’m not sure that I got the right answer or the correct revelation in every case, but maybe that was the point. Definitely a book with a difference.
