A rather depressing collection of short stories with really weird/strange/interesting characters. Some stories are fascinating, others just sad. Some I liked, some not so much. Some look like a foreplay of what could've grown into something bigger. Some, I didn't need to know more. Well. It's all in the mix, I guess.

Running Out of Dog: Scary. You see the disaster coming and don't know how it could be stopped.

ICU: Depressing Paranoia. In a Kafka-esque way.

Gone Down to Corpus: Very weird. Strange kids behaving even stranger.

Mushrooms: Didn't really leave a big impact.

Until Gwen: Loved the 2nd person POV. It works so fantastic if it's well done, and since Lehane is an awesome writer, I knew he'd pull it off.

Coronado: Strangely enough, I liked this one most. A play! But it's so... revealing.
