This review is from: Nine Stories (Mass Market Paperback)
I am ecstatic to report that 'Nine Stories', despite its general links to Holden Caulfield's world in 'Catcher in the Rye', this book of short stories holds barely any resemblance to it's exceptionally famous predecessor. I was gripped from the off by the edgy, strangeness of the stories, as well as their ambiguous endings. The characters are are established quickly and with feeling, leaving the reader more than enough time to be consumed by the situations they find themselves in and wanting to know more. The final story in this collection is an absolute peak and made my day. A great surprise for an author I had quite wrongly pigeon-holed. Happy days.
