Low 3. This collection of short stories reveal both the creative talent of the writer, but also his frustrating penchant for imbuing his stories with just too many facets which leave the purpose behind the narrative too indeterminate. The two exceptional stories within the collection are 'The Story of a Marriage' and 'The Verdict on the Right Honourable Ignatio Landstad Rasker', which both contain wit and imagination in abundance, as well as a surprise ending. A couple of the other stories have a great opening premise but fail to deliver on this, notably 'An Experiment in the Constancy of Love'. Hoeg once more fails to truly grasp the reader.
