I loved A Heatbreaking Work of Staggering Genius but to be honest, I like How We Are Hungry more.
It's a bit more accessibly written than AHWSG, and the plots are very orginal and entertaining.
If you want a book that will make you grin and laugh out loud(and who doesnt) this is the book for you.
I read 100 Years of Solitude - Marquez and Notes of A Dirty Old Man - Bukowski before this and its tied with those works as my current favorites if youve read them thats a good gague and also if you like HWAH then check those out if you havent. (which are great & i highly reccommend as well!)
This, his third book, a collection of short stories, reads more like a collection of ideas that never grew up to be bigger. Some, only a page or two long, never even made it to short-storyhood. His writing is fantastic, but I felt like, for most of the stories, I was reading about him or someone he knows. The characters are interesting, but all tend to act and sound the same. His stories have a bit of desperate sadness to them, but they never really go anywhere. Sometimes this is nice. Other times it would be nice to go somewhere with these interesting people. I was a little disappointed that my favorite story in the book is one I read years ago in a short story anthology. It's a great story told from the point of view of a dog. Perhaps I'm being unfair to expect to be blown away by everything Eggar's writes, but there are so many fantastic lines, brilliant descriptions and details laced throughout his stories that I want the stories themselves to be as good.
