I'll admit that I only picked the book up because of the title, but the reviews I've read were decent so I had high expectations. The stories has the potential to be very good however I felt that the execution of the stories was poor.

I understand that these are just short stories, and they are supposed to be an insight into human emotion, but I just got more disappointed the further into the book that I got. The first story made no sense to me and the rest of the stories didn't get much bet...more I'll admit that I only picked the book up because of the title, but the reviews I've read were decent so I had high expectations.

I understand that these are just short stories, and they are supposed to be an insight into human emotion, but I just got more disappointed the further into the book that I got. The first story made no sense to me and the rest of the stories didn't get much better. There were one or two stories that were good, but still the abrupt endings were disappointing to me.

I kept reading this book hopping that it would get better, but it just didn't. I don't think it was a horrible book, but I definitely didn't like it. I may pick up another of Faber's books because like I said I thought many of the stories had very good potential, so I think that if he were to finish the stories that they would have been at the very least good. I liked his writing style, and his stories were not what I would consider status quo, which made the basis of the stories good. I just wish there had been more to this book.
