Twittering From the Circus of the Dead by Joe Hill

Twittering from the Circus of the Dead - Joe Hill

 

This short story is told via the tweets of a teenage girl.

I don't tweet, so when I discovered that this was to be the format of the story, I was not impressed. However, as I continued to read, the story reeled me in.

A family is traveling towards home, coming back from vacation, when they see a sign for the Circus of the Dead. Who could let such an opportunity pass by? The family attends this circus which is startlingly realistic. Maybe TOO realistic.

I loved the originality of this story which combines the technology of today with the fantastic story telling abilities of old. Highly recommended!
