Short stories with a very quirky twist

Perfect - as new

What an awful collection of short stories. No real beginning and no real end to any of them. Some were self-induglent stream-of-consciousness stuff about nothing (why was that person stuck in the linen cupboard?) and some seemed to be half-thought-out concepts that were maybe being considered to go into novels at some unspecified point in the future. I found myself speed-reading it towards the end just to get through it and on to the next (and, on balance of probabilities, better) book on my Kindle.

Would have given it one star, but for this attack of brilliance:

"Jill's been inside every house in the area and keeps a running score of who has what in terms of cars, large-screen televisions, walk-in freezers, etc. Jim thinks if she could keep her mouth shut she'd make a killing as a burglar."

I don't normally like short story collections, but this was perfect for reading on the tube. The characters were very well written for such short stories, it didn't feel like they were missing anything, and each snapshot of suburban life is disturbing but believable. I was thinking about them long after I put the book down.

Although well written some of the subject matter portrayed in the stories was disturbing and made an uncomfortable read. Not recommended
