Short Story Sunday #2- The Blue Lenses

Last week I read the first in the collection of short stories in Daphne du Maurier’s The Breaking Point. Today I read the next story The Blue Lenses. I have to say, I’m really starting to enjoy short stories.

The Blue Lenses is about a lady, we’re never quite sure of her age, that has just had an operation to cure her sight. However, when she comes round from the operation and her new lenses in her eyes are revealed, she see things or rather people incredibly strangely. I won’t say how and spoil it!

What I liked about this story, is that I had no idea where it was going. I’m finding this a lot with Du Maurier’s work. I love that. I love to be kept guessing. When it was finished, I found myself smiling. Such a strange story.

I can’t wait to read the next story in the collection. I’m surprised at how much I’m enjoying them. I always thought short stories weren’t for me, but I’m happy to be proved wrong.
