Hazy Shade of Winter
Hazy Shade of Winter by Chris Roberts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hazy Shade of Winter is a slice of life short story about a young woman suffering from Manic Depressive disorder. It is switches between past and present tense, wherein Blaine looks back on her life struggling with her psychiatric problems and troubled personal life. Blaine is a curious protagonist that I connected with easily.
The language has a poetic quality in line with Blaine’s love of writing poetry, and never ceases to draw the reader in with its strong narrative and descriptive. Though beautifully written, the story covers themes and subject matter that may depress some readers. The plot progression and ending is logical in spite of how tragic the life of this protagonist is. In conclusion, this short story is beautifully written, but is not for a reader looking for a light read.
