The stories are patronising and somewhat dreamy. The good thing about them is they lead you to the dark side. But the way it's told are more like chaotic ramble that has no sense of order, that feels like abstract painting which you don't know whether it is a good painting.

The ramblings feel too vague that I couldn't picture the story very well—they are blurry, like bad photographs.

There are a lot of surprise tactics and twists. But not only that, there are also many other tricks applied to make the stories work. But somehow I feel like just reading the tricks, not the stories.

I would say the book is pleasant enough, like gentle wind. But just like wind, it's fleeting, unseen and empty. You'd forget it as soon as it passed.
