Each of Okojie's fable-like stories end in a twist of fate - sometimes good sometimes bad. Despite my best efforts I could not see a common theme - most are set in London but some are in Europe, some are modern - others aren't and some feature downright magical themes yet others are based on ordinary lives. The only common thread I could muster was that each of them are dark stories. Whether they started or ended that way they all had an underlying tone of nervous anticipation. I suspect that this is what Okojie intended and I loved this collection the more for it.
Whilst some of the stories are a bit weaker than the others that is only a few small percentage and it is only due to how outstandingly gripping the one prior to it was. Each of these stories will linger in your mind mainly due to the way they unexpectedly end.
