I keep Through Button Eyes by my bed. Curling up with this anthology takes me places I haven't been with characters who never fail to surprise and delight and set me to wondering as I drift off to sleep. The stories are united by a simple button. If you have a collection of buttons in your possession, the next time you open up the box, you might see these utilitarian objects in a different light. They're like seeds in a garden that spring to life.

This was my first time reading short stories and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I tend to gravitate toward action packed books that are in the sci-fi or dystopian genres. What I loved about "Through Button Eyes, a Collection of Short Fiction" was that I had the opportunity to read genres I would not normally pick up. The stories are short, so if the genre was not what you typically read and you don't like it, no harm done. However, if you did like it, then you have broadened your horizons to enjoy new ...more

I enjoyed reading this book, particularly because I knew 2 of the authors of this collection of short stories. Although the stories were all very different, they were threaded together by the inclusion of a button in each story. Some of the stories were funny, others poignant and many were surprising with unexpected plot twists. I applaud these local authors for rising to the challenge to write stories revolving around a small everyday object and creating interesting and varied stories and for d ...more
