Ricky's Back Yard - Saint Reviews
When I first read the blurb of this book/magazine, it really didn’t make any sense. But I gave it a shot when it said “this Saint packed a punch namely to Cancer.” Ricky’s Backyard Saint is a compilation of “odd” short stories written by people I haven’t heard before. They’re odd for me, because it felt like I was reading a bunch of random words that make perfect sense. I particularly liked four stories - Big and Strong by Andrew Koi that featured a personal trainer and a cat lover. I should say the story didn’t make much sense to me until the end, when it made me realize that we don’t really have to understand a person’s reason for doing things, we just have to accept them the way they are. Reflection Reflux by Andres Castro broke my heart, and for a moment there I wondered how people could judge others without knowing their story. Birthday by Kyle Ensrude gave me some chills – this is by far the story from this compilation that reminded me of the movie Scream for some reason. And finally, that graphic story, Fuck Cancer in the Peehole which is full of allusion but the message I got is that cancer can be fought off if we all do it together. It’s good to know that there are people who take the time to come up with something for cause. Though it’s not my first time to come across projects like this, it gives an idea to other people that all of us can contribute something for a cause, and in this case, for cancer peeps – for those who have lost but magnificently fought and those who are still magnificently fighting.
Five stars for value! 99cents for so many stories! From funny to scary and strange, there is a story here for anyone. Plus if you buy the next two issues your money will go towards a great cause. I definitely recommend Ricky's Back Yard-Saint if you are looking for something different to read!
Awesome book!Unputdownable! Absolutely 5 stars. This book is so great, a absolutely fantastic series, well worth a read and there's more coming!
