Each story is quite short making the book a quick read. However, these are not “feel good” stories, these are stories of human pain, disillusionment and regret. Perhaps I am more of a sap than I realized, but I found the stories to be disturbing in some cases and a bit difficult to relate to. The author’s sharp wit and often jagged cynicism is evident throughout the stories, though it is his ability to convey the heartache of each character, laced with the tiniest thread of hope that is compelling. While this is not Mr. Gillespie’s most rousing book, I would contend that his imagination and storytelling ability shine through as brightly as in his previous work.
