It was fascinating to get to see inside the mind of a very talented writer. These stories are both hilarious and touching. And so well written. It was one of those books where I started noticing and appreciating the word choice in addition to getting a good experience. I was sad when I finished the book.
I'm glad SN is finding so much success as of late and people are finally recognizing his genius. ;)
Thanks for sharing yourself with us.

*My Favorites. I laughed (Postcards), got a little teary (Our Future Together), had a moment of melancholy (The Red Plastic Bat), cringed a little (Dead Cats) and laughed again (So you want to be a writer). If you're like me, a fan of short stories, you won't be disappointed. This book is a steal at 99 cents.
Scott Nicholson brought out some important ideas in his stories, including some that people take a life time to understand. To truly comprehend the magnitude in his words, opens up a broader perspective on not only literature but daily life lessons as well.
The story engagement was a little wary for me. The story lines were well established and his writing style is somewhat addicting, but I found the collection overall lacking. I believe that the connection to the reader was not there, that we felt and understood what he meant and what he was trying to present through stories, but I just couldn't relate or even attempt to relate to what was happening in the stories. The mixture of poems, essays, and stories was a little deceiving at first too. The stories were much more presentable in the connection than the poems. I felt the poems were more clever phrases verses clever meanings.
Overall, this book was interesting and opened a few new perspectives for me.
If you're looking for a good read from Nicholson, look no further.
