Eerie collection of tales bound together by a charm bracelet.
It was not what I expected. It was a collection of short stories by several different people.
Great authors. Great concept. Just a little too macabre for my tastes (but that was the theme, right?)!
Very interesting experiment. A collection of stories stretching from 1803 to modern day, each story linked by death and a mysterious charm bracelet.
This is a very interesting book. I ordered it because I realy like Karin Slaughter, but it's a surprising book. Enjoyable in it's own way.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book: I've enjoyed what I've read from these authors in the past, but thought the theme of the charm bracelet might make the stories a bit, well, cheesy. I needn't have worried; the stories are all well-written, thoroughly twisted, and a bit dark. The same bracelet appears in each story, but the stories stand alone, each presented in the voice of a unique narrator. As with all collections by varied authors, some stories are more to your taste than others, but none were clunkers.
