Well, you know what they say about books and covers. This is a collection of surprisingly good stories in a substantially more adult voice.
"Childish Things" starts off serious. It takes an abrupt and surprising turn early on, and I was pretty sure that what had seemed a confident hand had made a serious error. But the story works, and if it's not quite the story I was anticipating, it's a good one.
"Moon, June, Raccoon" is a light, off-beat love story that's just the right mix of funny and touching.
"Norma the Wal-Mart Greeter Meets the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" is just what it sounds like. Small, but just the right size.
"Swear Not By the Moon" I didn't like as much. A little too bloody, perhaps, though the ending is nice.
"Drawn From Memory" is again about a topic that's foreign to me, but Hall pulls it off very nicely.
"The Garden", the last story in the collection, is short but beautiful.
In brief (and the book was short), this is a nice collection of very good stories. Ignore the cover and pick this up. I'll definitely be checking out more of Ms. Hall's work, and trying to figure out why I hadn't heard of her before.
A few stories, some of them only a few lines, some of them longer, but all of them well-written. Written with a big portion of fantasy - and love.
Author gives us a strange worlds - worlds, where you can interview cartoon characters or have a racoon to find you a date. And what I like most about these worlds - they are perfectly natural. Author throws me in the middle of someone's life in this strange world so I can witness a chapter from his/her life - without being forced to know "how the hell is this even possible?" I don't ask these questions and I don't want to know the answer - I am totally cool with the four riders of appocalypse going shopping to Wallmart! You want me to read about the world, where you can really talk to your imaginary friend - so be it. And don't force me any explanation. They are irrelevant.
Second story, Moon, June, Racoon, was the best. Funny in that clever way. This story by itself could easily make it to 5*s.
