The book moves around in time quite a bit, there are some stories . If you didn't read The Crimson Petal, The Apple might seem disjointed- but most short story collections are so.

The book moves around in time quite a bit, there are some stories featuring Sugar before the events of Crimson Petal, but others follow characters after the events of Crimson have finished. Well worth tracking down and reading, although more Sugar would have been nice. Having recently finished reading Crimson Petal, I couldn't wait to read the follow up short stories in The Apple and I wasn't disappointed!Just a handful of stories sees us re-visiting Sugar in her life pre-Crimson, Clara, Mr Bodley, William and, indirectly, Sophie all post-Crimson.

Talk about The Apple: Crimson Petal Stories

A real disappointment after the Crimson Petal and the White- which ended abruptly and left one involved with the characters and interested in their futures. It did provide a look at the future of the characters but was a mishmash of too much detail and too vague. the writing was not as compelling- the stories more tawdry than interesting.

I like this writer, but I was disappointed there wasn't more. These are all short stories. I really wanted to read more about Sugar. If you like short stories these are good.

For those of us who just could not get enough of Crimson Petal this will help, but not satiate, those desires. This rascal of an author does not divulge - at least entirely - of what ever became of our heroine, Miss Sugar! But, that's OK. There is enough information revealed to glean the probabilities. And background and forward character developments help to flesh out (pun intended!) our dear friends and scoundrels alike. I just wish Faber would have gone on with the reminisence! "But tomorrow is another day! Come back tomorrow, and I will tell you the rest. Everything you still want to know, I promise. Tomorrow." Ah, there is the hope of tomorrow!

Faber states that this book will hold its own - that it is not necessary to read Crimson Petal first. I suppose that is a correct statement. but I am so glad that I read it prior to knowing about The Apple. Highly recommend these books and the BBC miniseries.

I'll admit it, I picked up this book hoping for some closure after the abrupt ending of the book. These stories were as well written and rich as the book, and it did tell a few stories about what happened to the characters, but it left off with an ending as abrupt and frustrating as the book. Much as I enjoy reading these stories, I won't be picking up any more of this author's work because I'm tired of these non-endings. I like the stories I read to have more closure than this.

It is very well done and beautifully written, so if you don't mind the ambiguity you should enjoy these stories. They touched a bit more on the early feminist movement and the strict morals of the past. The characters are rich and compelling. I love the amount of historical detail given.

A bit of a disappointment as I wanted more, much more than this short book contains, on the life of Sugar, but a satisfying update on the lives of the characters of one of my favorite novels...

This was to be a sequel to The Crimson Petal and the White. It was such a let down! You just didn't know what had happened to the characters and it was a very short read! I would have to say after the abrupt ending of the afore mentioned book and the promise of finding out what became of the characters I expected much more!

I love Michel Faber. I was hooked by the TV version of The Crimson Petal and the White, and began reading all his novels. What a discovery! What a writer! I don't even know quite how to describe what he does, but I hope he keeps doing it. I was glad when he came out with a continuation of some of the stories begun in The Crimson Petal and the White. The characters are so compelling.
I read a lot and often get sick of same old stuff. This book had it all history, romance, suspense. It is for mature adults but us not smut . Hated to finish it.
