*Tentatively looks around* Is it just me? Reading through the glowing reviews of this book of short stories leaves me baffled. I have never been a short story aficionado, but I always try to broaden my horizon when it comes to book genres. Unfortunately this really really didn’t work for me. I think that this book is more of a case of
“it’s not you, it’s me”
I found a lot of the stories/dialogue really weird and random, and for short stories that doesn’t really help. It took me so long to understand and “get into” each story that by the time I was kind of into it, it was over. Some of the stories do have really cool concepts but for me it just wasn’t enough to save this collection.
Buy, Borrow or Bin Verdict: Bin
