it was ok
Read in June, 2011

Maybe it was my mood, but I couldn't finish it now. I forced my way through more than half of these short stories. They were written well enough but there was a singleness to the stories that wasn’t appealing. I can read depressing stories but, honestly, these were such that I thought the author should be in therapy. I didn’t hear a universal theme or hope or anything more than an expression of depression. An author needs to give more than that.
