Of all the short stories in this collection, I think "Piece of String" is my favorite. During and after I read it, I continued to find more and different layers to this story. For only being four pages long, it will be a story that will stick to my bones until I'm gone. "The Horla" was frightening, to say the least, because I believe that these things do come to sit with us if we invite them in. "The Necklace" was a bit predictable (but that may be due to my modern sensibilities and jaded look on life), "Ball of Fat" was truly sad and realistic, and some of the others blend together. I am so grateful for the chance to read and discuss it. Well worth the read!
