I chose to read this book as a member of Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team and received a copy from the author. This does not affect my review in any way.

I like books of shorter fiction. They often give me respite between longer works and are great when travelling or in waiting rooms. At least that is what I usually find. But this is a bit different and difficult to describe. In short, these weren’t easy-going stories you could race through while waiting for your name to be called. They required some thought and concentration.

Overall, I enjoyed the book, but I have to admit that I felt a tad out of my depth reading some of these stories. Occasionally I felt it was a US reference I didn’t get and often that I just wasn’t well-read enough for this clever author.

There’s no doubt the stories are often absurdly quirky and mostly entertaining, but they are also thought-provoking, so I definitely finished the read feeling like I’d learned something.
