4.0 out of 5 stars infinite variety of horrible, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book of short stories is a great introduction to John Connolly's writing which I had missed before now. The opening story is gripping from the opening sentence but as I like to read when I'm eating this was something to be savoured after I had digested my meal . I did enjoy the variety of place ,characters and time in the stories which reminded me of the work of M.R James with the addition of highly descriptive fleshy details. I enjoyed it immensely and will be reading more, l will be recommending this set of stories to my 17 year old son who likes to open a conversation with such questions as" in your opinion ,was Hannibal Lecter wrong or simply a different form of human?"

I read this book with few expectations as I have not read many books from the author and knew little about her life. From the beginning I felt totally at home with the voice and character OF JANE HOWARD and enjoyed the highs and lows OF HER STORY.
