The characters felt like they were the author's friends, that she had heard these stories from the friends while sitting around a fire. Many of them are people I'd like to meet myself.
I mentioned the stories are very short. Most are two pages, with a few three or four pages. In terms of length, the stories are both absolutely right and completely wrong. Each one is just the right length and needs nothing further. However, I wanted each one to keep going for many more pages.
Given the length of the stories, I probably could have read this in two or three days, and that's what I initially intended to do. After the first pair I read, I decided to stop there for the day. These were fudge truffle delicacies I wanted to savor, not M&Ms to gorge on.
I'd be hard-pressed to name a favorite, or even two. Ask me again in an hour, and my answer will probably change. Right this moment, though, I'll give you three: "Smile", "Key", and "Numbers".
Excellent first book, and I'm looking forward to more stories. The map always needs extending and the edges pushed further back, no?
Day to day, us human beings seem to think in a "one dimensional" sphere.
Jax's writings push the reader into an unlimited realm of spheres to orchestrate fantasy into their meagre existances, therefore encouraging their human psyches to DEVELOP, EXPAND, THINK OUTSIDE THE SQUARE !!
