Description

"Why do you want to be a boat builder?"

"Because," said Morwenna, "I like the way the boats grow."

Morwenna and Corwin are eight years old, wind-swept and salty-haired twins growing up on the Devon coast. In the soft autumn light, they play as their grandfather, Matthew, watches the boats come in. But it is a day unlike any other.

Bringing Stan In is the short-story prequel to The House at the Edge of the World by Julia Rochester. If you liked this, you’ll love the full-length novel.

Good-ish

What disappointed you about FREE SHORT STORY: Bringing Stan In?

The story seemed to short. It was also hard to get into.

How could the performance have been better?

she did great. However, when she started acting out the different characters it got awkward. She has a great natural voice with a pleasant accent.

Surprised by joy

A world of lives in a very short story. Wonderfilled! So many perspectives knit together in a tightly woven net.

A short story with heart

I found this short story good, but nothing outstanding. I did enjoy the humbling moment at the end.

Dealing with Death

Would you listen to Bringing Stan In again? Why?

Yes, It is a good little short story to contemplate what death is. How it affects people and how the innocent observations of children are good coping skills.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that it took me through the death and funeral process.

What about Avita Jay’s performance did you like?

I noticed her dialect was different and wondered if it was part of the setting for the story?

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Stan's Departure

Any additional comments?

It would be a great animation story to teach children about death. It is also great for adults who are not quite sure how to share death with young children.

good for the price

Way too short but you get what you pay for, it was free.
28 minutes of broken plots but I feel the author will get better

Endearing piece

Matthew helps his eight year old granddaughters cope with the death of a local man. Through this process, Matthew comes to understand the importance Stan had it his own life. If you're looking for a quick and easy read, this text should do the trick.

Eine nette kleine Geschichte ...

über Kinder und Erwachsene, die wichtigen Dinge im Leben und an dessen Ende. wunderbar gelesen wonderfully british, wie sie die Charaktere durch ihren Tonfall herausarbeitet ist sehr hörenswert. eine schöne halbe Stunde zwischendurch.
