liked it

This is quite a strange book, really. It's a collection of short stories but even now I've not sure what the unifying theme is meant to be. I liked the idea of stories to get you through the night, which I thought meant stories to bring you through those dark hours on nights where sleep won't come, and we've all had those nights. I'm not sure the collection works as that, though there are no doubt some lovely stories in it.

The stories collected here were generally classics and of a high quality, I'm not disputing that, but I think the link between them was tenuous and that took away a little of my enjoyment of this as a collection for me.
