it was ok
Read in October, 2009

Pithy stories centered (in most cases) on somewhat soulless, clinging characters seemingly unaware of their own superficiality. I'd at first anticipated the revealing of something universal--ruminations on life squandered and fictitious "experience" perhaps leading to an epiphany or two--but soon resigned myself to the vaguely predictable revelations in each snapshot-like tale. Also, I was turned off by the needless reduction of most female characters to an assemblage of body parts subjected to the scrutiny of a faintly chauvinistic male gaze. Quick read.
