I have never encounter a short story collection that really got my attention just by reading the first sentences of the first story. The first entry convinced me that much that I knew I would like the entire collection. The author doesn’t border on dramatic and confusing prose but just tells his story straight to the point the reason why majority of his short stories are just a couple of pages. As a self-titled short story writer, I envied his every idea wishing I’ve come to it before he does. Anyway, it’s like reading a Chicken Soup for the Soul composing of weird stories but it too borders on melancholy.
If you want to read something fast, insightful (I guess) and funny, a short story which will not make you think of its significance and meaning, this short story collection is for you. I can’t recommend it highly enough for everyone.
