I don't usually read books that is on a world a lot like our own but different because I get easily confused with what happens in the book and what really happens on Earth so I tend to stay away from books like these. I also tend to stay away from books that contain short stories each with a different character in it. So when I was surprised when I picked this book up and started reading because these just aren't the types of books that I would read.
I found myself enjoying this book because I have a fascination with robots and how they are made of wheels and clogs and manage to talk and act as if they're alive, well in stories of course. After I finished reading I was left with a important question: can these things happened in the future? I mean can we as humans make a automaton and make it alive somehow? So I was left scratching my head with that question.
I was pleased with how well the stories were told and the language used was different but not too different, if you get what I mean. My favorite story is probably The Last Ride of the Glory Girls by Libba Bray. I loved how the story is told and I can relate to how the heroin of the story, Adelaide Jones, feels in some parts of the story. I didn't really like the ending though. It was okay but I would have liked it more if she didn't try to escape into the future or the past.
