I found this story intriguing considering it comes from an inanimate objects point of view. That's right. This story is from the van's point of view. Stories are unraveled about the cargo she's (I pictured the van as a she, the gender isn't really specified) carried along with the passengers she carries.

Neftzger creates a unique concept with this short story. It's easy to read, follow, and can be read in one sitting.

The story is a small collection of tales of passengers that ride along in the

Amy Neftzger may have invented a new genre, "van-tasy." Her collection of stories is tied together by the narrator, a van who/that is omniscient.

“Confessions from a Moving Van” by Amy Neftzger is an interesting take on the interconnectedness of our lives. Narrated from the moving van’s perspective, these short stories provide a snap shot of the lives of several families in season s of transition. As we follow along it becomes apparent that the lives we are viewing have a connection to the choices others have made. In retrospect on wonders about the road not taken as if that were possible.

I won this from another site. While it took about a hour to read, I really liked it. The book is short with stories of the lives of different people who intertwine and happen to rent the same moving van.
Well written, fun, I wish it was longer.
