Customer Review

on 20 July 2005
These short stories are extremely well written and there's a luscious, unrushed feeling about them, so often missing in short stories, but the subject matter is (for lack of a better word) depressing.
I'm all for realism, especially when it's this well written, but in this case, there's just too much focus on the downside / darker side of life which ended up getting in the way of my enjoyment.
Definitely worth reading for it's literary value, but in my case, scored extremely low in terms of entertainment value. Maybe it's a case of 'frame of mind', but don't say you hadn't been warned...!
