Prepare to be surprised!, 6 Feb 2011
If you're looking for something different;something you will look back on and be grateful you took the time to wonder about, then this is the book for you. The intrigue of the title is easily rewarded by providing a great read. Mardell obviously has a real eye for the human condition and that is wonderfully reflected in these 12 stories. Each well able to stand alone, these short stories also have a pleasing thread that weaves knowingly throughout and spans the range of emotions- I laughed, sympathised, was genuinely scared by and then taken by surprise all in 256 pages. Personally I can't wait for a second book.
