You know how you've always wished that someone would write a grown-up version of the choose your own adventure stories? Well, Kevin Brockmeier has gone ahead and done this for you and it appears mid-way through this collection. The story itself is pretty good, or at least quite fun to read (and re-read). The rest of the stories range from great to just okay. The book is certainly worth checking out, especially if you like his subject matter. There is no question that he is a talented writer. His prose is intelligent, poetic, and often down-right gorgeous. Sometimes it leans toward saccharine, but that's okay; in a tough world a little intense sweetness is called for from time to time.
