really liked it
Read in September, 2011

I liked this better than Pretty Monsters. The first few stories here had the same style-over-substance issues that I was disappointed by in her other collection, but some of the middle stories really wowed me, particularly Travels with the Snow Queen, which I very much loved. But then Louise's Ghost was a total stinker - way too precious for my tastes. I didn't read The Specialist's Hat because this story also appeared in Pretty Monsters and I had read it there, though maybe it wasn't exactly the same here. Or maybe it was. Or is. Whichever. Again, if you like un-normalness, Kelly Link is for you. One word of advice is Don't Read the Blurbs (ok that was more than one word) because they are way over the top, as if the blurbers are trying to out Kelly Link Kelly Link on her own book. I found that annoying.
