I found this book to be very dark, which I like, and very well written. Would definitely love to read more from this author. The writer took me into places, and dragged out emotions, without getting crazy in the descriptions of every little detail. Congrats to the writer on a fine effort.

The stories in this book are professional and entertaining. Although I found some of the themes a little spooky, I was never once disappointed. If you like stories that a little quirky, this is the ticket.
The one complaint I have is that I think the volume is a little too short. A couple more stories would have rounded it out nicely. Well, good things come in small packages I guess.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes short stories and isn't afraid of surprise endings. Oh, and get a box of tissues out for "Plainness".
