This is tough, I wish i could give it 3 and a 1/2. The first is about a reoccurring character, Brown Dog, who I really love reading about. If I could just rate that story, I would give it a 5. Harrison really uses BD to simplify the human condition in a way that is memorable and relatable in an odd way. The middle story was very disappointing. It went on an on (something I usually don't mind from this author), but in this case it was pretty uninteresting. The final story was good as well, but I enjoyed the first tale the most. If you have read the others with Brown Dog, this is a must read to revisit the character
