Reviews of The World Feels Smaller by E. W. Murks

Nancy reviewed on Jan. 28, 2015

This story is very short and simply written, yet is successful at conveying the pain and sadness of a man whose partner left him. His trip to Thailand offers beauty, tranquility, friendship, and hope. I enjoyed the setting, the food, and the exploration of feelings. The journey ends, but life always takes surprising turns.

A little melancholy, except the author tantalizes readers with anticipation, what will happen next to this wounded soul?

"The World Feels Smaller" is, in a word, great. A very engaging story told in a even more enaging manner, I felt like I was there to witness the event and more importantly, feel empathy for the characters.

A really great story - you'll wonder what happens next. I can't wait to read the followup! The author does not use frilly and complex words and descriptions, which makes the reader able to easily relate to the characters and situations. Will be looking forward to more good reads from E.W. Murks!

I was quickly sucked into The World Feels Smaller and very happy it was well edited — no rambling, no filler, no author ambiguity. A tight story that moved right along, leaving me with a desire to know more about the main characters. Since reading the story, I have found myself often daydreaming about the characters and the details of their lives. A good read!
