This is a collection of sad, bittersweet stories centering mainly on the themes of love and death. They are all very short and could probably be fleshed out more to get us a bit more invested in the characters before going for the final "twist". The copy I read contained numerous editing errors, especially considering the short length of the book.
Warnings: coarse language.
This is a great book when you have only a few minutes for a break. But it also makes you think about how other people behave and react. It’s true that we don’t know what happens to other people but this is a quick reminder that nothing in life is going to turn out like you expect.
If you are looking for a great, quick read I recommend you checking out this book. I can’t wait to see what P.F. Citizen One comes up with next.
I received Unexpected: Short Stories from Around the World from Partners in Crime Virtual Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced by opinion of this book.
