's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: recommendations

I was actually asked by the author if I would be interested in reading an ARC of his book for an honest review! My answer of course was yes of course! I usually do not read short stories because they usually aren't so good. These stories really surprised me, I was not expecting these short stories to be so good!

The stories were to me daily life moments when everything goes wrong. This book was filled with anger, bad luck, worry, and doom. They are very heart broken stories. Some of them I found to be a little humorous especially the depressed hedgehog story.

This is filled with your darkest moments. Have you ever had a day where every thing goes wrong, of course we all have. When you have one of those days, read this book and you will probably laugh out loud.

The story that I thought was the saddest was about a family that was evicted from their own home, but find out that they never even owned it to begin with.

I really did love this collection of short stories. I even liked the characters. I will be reading more books by this author. I consider myself lucky and so happy that I got this book. Jacob Appel Thank You very much! I appreciated this.

Susan I really wouldn't really consider it dark humor, not all stories are funny but a few are. Not every one will have the same problems as the characters in the book had, but I think the best way to summarize this would be life isn't perfect and just stories that might might you feel better when life isn't treating you the way you want it too. I think there are 8 short stories, the book really is a short book.
