Have to say that this collection of short stories didn't do anything for me. They are all a bit off the wall and more violent than I normally am comfortable with. The writing was okay, but nothing special, so that didn't make up for the other issues I had with it. The collection includes ten short stories, and everyone seems disturbed or has lots of issues. They don't seem to communicate well with the people around them, and they all seem to have some kind of issue in how they react to certain kinds of behaviours from others. Definitely not my thing.
