Shutterspeed was a strange story.

It seemed extremely slow, then extremely fast, and then at normal pacing. I suppose it suited the story: I’m a little astonished as to how it worked. The author managed to pull it off.

The entire concept of the story was beautiful, but a little rushed. I’m sure that, if the author made it into a bigger novel, it’d be among my favourites. A little suspenseful, mysterious and strangely heartbreaking. I couldn’t give it more than three stars, though, because it felt rushed.

As a side-note, I thought the author was male. To my surprise, she was female. I would’ve never guessed: she nails the voice of a teenage boy perfectly.

There isn’t much else to say. But I’ll have an eye out for this author.
