Captain Arnold is a collection of stories that embodies elements of paranormal, urban fantasy, and science fiction. The book is geared towards the younger adult group and begins with Captain Arnold.
Captain Arnold is a young, physically disabled boy who is brave and interesting to read. As the story was short, I was left wanting more. I wanted to know more about him and his thoughts. This didn’t take away from the enjoyment of reading the book but what existed was what you expect from a short story. I believe the author has the potential to write similar kinds of stories in a longer format.
I would have preferred a little more focus and creativity on the book cover and formatting; however, the content was very well written. There is something for everyone in this collection of stories. The literature focuses on the elements of its genre rather than descriptive writing. This justifies its short form as well. Just to give you an idea, there are 17 stories in 180 pages. Therefore, in terms of flow or pace, in some cases, it would stop before it started.
