    1. Amazing short storiesThis was amazingly shocking I enjoyed the short stories this author delivered I loved this I don t want to go into any detail I will say go in blind and enjoy the madness.


    2. Sweet Violent Femmes is a collection of short, almost feministic, stories by emerging author and freelance short story writer Holly M Kothe Hallmarks of her work are biting, incisive prose that is highly descriptive, conveys ambiance, in careful construction of scene and setting, which makes the outer world slide away Soon the reader is vicariously living the life of a scary, confident, assertive heroine with a white hot virulent rage on that won t be sated at least not until vengeance has been [...]


    3. My review is here review R3UZRGI have enjoyed this collection of short stories The four women depicted end up doing act of violence, not because they are psychotic but because they have been pushed too far, one time too many Their last act is really due to the last drop that make the glass overflow Except maybe the last one, where we could say it has been planned and premeditated.This is a fascinating collection because they are crimes of passion also Whether right or wrong, no one can say what [...]


    4. Sweet Violent Femmes is a great little collection of feminine wrath shorts told through the eyes of the ladies and I have to say it was a satisfying read Rather than using the usual tropes of such fiction Kothe manages to give us some fresh perspective and characters who have every right to seek vengeance on the men who mistreated them Her writing is very fluid and introspective, capable of laying out a scene by bit to build tension and interest for the reader Nicely done.


    5. Dark and Engaging A quick read Great short stories with a really dark Noir feel and some surprising plot twists Well written and entertaining.


    6. First up, there s The Glass Room It s a story set in Paris and without going into spoiler territory, it s essentially one continuous scene where girls are assembled in a glass room, while clients view them and then pay the owners of the establishment to be serviced As you can imagine, the story touches on what it s like to be in that line of business, with the emphasis on what might be felt if they re abused at the hands of the clients I liked the emphasis on how greed can affect people and how [...]


    7. Originally posted on The Lucid PenI finished this anthology collection in a day and a half I ve always loved short stories and commend good short story authors for being able to weave a tale in only a small amount of pages.Holly M Kothe has written a dark, oftentimes disturbing collection of shorts that left me distraught, but at the same time excited Each story examines the minds of women who have long been pushed past their breaking point.Each character, save for one as her life wasn t really [...]


    8. This is a collection of short stories.They are not you usual sweet short reads so make sure you read the blubs.Violent females are the agenda here I went from engrossed, interesting, oh dear to hiding behind my hand as I read There were a few gruesome bits in it for me To some it would be nothing, to me it was ah yuk Mind you, I still continued to read it all.The author writes well in good detail.I was given this to read in exchange for my honest opinion.


    9. Absolutely nutsI love these short stories Especially the twisted conclusions This is a brilliant author that buries deep into the psyche of her characters.You may ask why a four star I wanted from a few of these stories It s my only complaint Other than that, these stories were executed well for the darkness factor.


    10. Some women will not be scorned is the premise of her short stories Holly Kothe delivers what s promised in each short piece The Glass Room, Tethered, Seeing Black, and Feminist Theory.The novel starts off with The Glass Room, which had a noir feel with a modern edge Aside from the fact that the main character doesn t have a name, this is a fun and well told tale The narrator s voice was exciting to follow There weren t long winded rants like some authors force down the reader s throats Instead, [...]


    11. So a few weeks ago I start reading this epic, humongous piece of Chinese literature, A Journey to the West, I ve always wanted to read it but I m aware it s going to be a trek I want to break it up with something shorter so I browse for some short stories Sweet Violent Femmes, was a strange choice I thought, not normally what I might have selected but it was four shorts that I could read one of and continue on my epic journey to the west Oh how wrong I was as after the first story I just had to [...]


    12. Review This book was given in exchange for a fair and honest review.Finding time to read a book all the way through these days is rare for me, so when I was given a copy of Sweet Violent Femmes, I hoped I would have time to read the entire thing As it happened, the pages few by in quick secession and before I knew it, I was lamenting the end This collection of short stories was beyond brilliant and full of righteous feminine fury In each tale there is an element of helplessness, an aura of femal [...]


    13. I cannot, in good conscience, give this collection anything fewer than five stars It is absolutely amazing These four short stories are all quite different, but they re all about women who ve been hurt In some, the hurt is once off in others, it s caused by systematic abuse In some, the women are psychologically jaded or damaged at the outset, and in others they re perfectly normal, seemingly well adjusted people until something pushes them over the edge.I found myself struggling as I read the s [...]


    14. This book was such a pleasant surprise for me I m not sure what I expected before I started reading, but the four tales inside were not it Sweet Violent Femmes is a compilation that will leave you thinking about what you ve read, long after you turn the final page.Four incredibly different stories, featuring four captivating heroines The women in these tales are not psychos or bunny boilers as you might expect given the title and cover art And neither are they weak, pathetic little victims pushe [...]


    15. Sweet Violent Femmes is a collection of twisted, dark stories For years I searched for a novel that caused my heart rate to race and had me looking over my shoulder at the dark shadows in my dimly lit reading room Until I discovered Holly Kothe s novel, horror stories did not live up to my expectations.Ms Kothe is a talented writer who draws the reader into the story Her protagonists got under my skin, causing me to despise the antagonists who hurt them While I routed for the women in each story [...]


    16. DENNIS LEHANE once said that the short story is the prose writer s best chance for perfection The novel is too big and unruly, but with the short story, the author can come close to getting it just right I think Holly M Kothe has approached perfection with her story collection Sweet Violent Femmes The collection contains four stories, all of which are quite compelling, but it was her writing technique that I found most impressive She gets deep into her characters, her rhythm is fluid, and there [...]


    17. Solid 3.5 5 stars.This collection of four short stories was absolutely fantastic The writing was great, and I found myself wrapped up in each story almost immediately.I did, however, have a few nits with each piece view spoiler The first one, for example, just didn t give me enough character I felt like I never got to know the narrator well enough through the piece, causing the ending to fall a bit short for me The suspence beforehand was magnetic, though In Seeing Black, I felt like each part o [...]


    18. I picked this gem up a while ago but only got to it now That being said, because it had been a while since I purchased it, I was a little confused at the switching of characters Once I figured out that it was several short stories, I was good I thought Ms Kothe did a terrific job of showing us different women at the brink of losing it and what straw actually sent them over If you are someone who loves psychological thrillers, this is a great author for you Her stories are fresh Her writing is fl [...]


    19. My review on pretty much says it all Kothe is a vibrant, dark, fresh and professional voice in the current wave of Indie writers, and she will become a huge name in fiction I VERY HIGHLY recommend reading this book I have delved into the works of hundreds of other Indie writers, and Kothe s work surpasses most that I ve read She is one of the writers we have all been waiting for to bring quality and genuine professional talent to the Indie mire Adult themes, erotic scenes, horror Stephen King i [...]


    20. Sweet Violent Femmes is a well written collection of short stories about women in various degrees of life taking retribution on the men who have hurt either them or the ones they loved What made this collection enjoyable for me is that the characters were not cookie cutter renditions of Lifetime channel rejects All the women, from the Parisian escort to the college student are well developed in their pain and madness Driven as they are to the conclusion that an act of violence is the only answer [...]


    21. What if a Female Dexter Met a Female Quentin Tarantino In Holly Kothe s collection of short stories, Sweet Violent Femmes, four women face challenging situations Each one handles it in her own indomitable way.The high quality of the writing grabs the reader s attention The spellbinding stories keep it.


    22. This is a collection of short stories It s a quick read filled with sick and gruesome tales Which is right up my alley If you have a weak stomach this is not for you Can t wait to read from this author WaAR
