    The stories in this book are dull

    Ususally a short story compilation should contain pieces that are provocative or leave the reader with a sense that the scene and characters have a past, present and future. That the story is a piece of a larger life of the work. A short story should focus on, and thoroughly develop a single idea or set of ideas. The work should stand out in the reader's mind as strong. Only a few of the stories in this collection accomplish this. Most are flat, dull and predicatable. I usually can't wait to get to the end of a novel or compilation. I couldn't even get half-way through this one before setting it aside and seeking out another book.
