Jan 03, Riju Ganguly rated it it was amazing. Once agin the moment has arrived, when I, in the humble capacity of a mere reader, get the opportunity to review works, at least some of which are considered as classics, or are likely to be heraleded as classics in due course. This is one such book, and I wish to review it with some care.
Undoubtedly, this is one of the best horror stories that have been written in recent times. This is a tale about a "talent" who is 'unearthed' pun intended, and you would understand after reading the story as a result of hunt to find a face that can sell eatables.
Not at all supernatural, but pleasant, and thought-provoking. Jan 12, Eric Keys rated it really liked it.
Overall this is a really great book. It is a bit uneven. Most of the stories are solid and there are a couple that I felt were truly amazing and possibly profound. The weakest points of the book were when Mr. Oliver strayed from the obviously supernatural.

The plots were not always wonderful but there were full of great characters or details or imagined histories or other delightful things that transformed what would have been a ho-hum ghost story or horror story into something dark and disturbing and at moments genuinely scary.
Horror stories rarely scare me but a couple of these did. I plan on reading more by Reggie Oliver and recommend this book to fans of horror and especially fans of the ghost story. Sep 19, P rated it really liked it. Solid traditional horror stories in an original theatre setting.
I was amused and captivated.
Los doce cuentos brillan con intensidad en toda la gama de colores oscuros que hacen grande a Oliver. Lamentablemente la novella, pese a contar con los mismos elementos, no consigue atraparme y hace que el conjunto pierda una estrella. Feb 08, Bibliophile rated it really liked it. My second Reggie Oliver outing didn't amaze me quite as much as the first one, Flowers of the Sea.
These stories are both more down to earth and more whimsical, and I seem to prefer the more serious tone of his later stories. Still very, very good.

Though he loses all these, Job keeps his faith in God.
Satan is working hard to win his bet, but Job steadfastly refuses to blame God for his misfortunes. God wins the bet, and restores his servant - who lives happily ever after, or, at least, to the ripe old age of Nevertheless, RVW thought long and hard about his subject, and did his level best to produce a score that would fully underpin the action, or rather inaction , of the ballet. In choosing his subtitle, A Masque for Dancing , he made a deliberate stylistic decision. Interpreting this design in terms of a very modern orchestra including organ , he transformed that carved line into a blazing bridge.
Seeming almost an accidental by-product of his endeavours to fulfil his commission, the result is a musical masterpiece, a resonance of ancient and modern every bit as impressive as the Tallis Fantasia. In Job we can feel the shadow of his earlier style, ranging from cosy, folk-based pastoralism to those immense surges of energy that characterised A London Symphony.
The music falls into a continuous succession of nine scenes. The following are no more than brief signposts, that hopefully will guide the newcomer through this awe-inspiring musical landscape: 1. Pious contemplation yields to a gaily skipping dance. The first climactic surge accompanies Job blessing his offspring.
