This was an extremely odd collection of short stories that are loosely connected in the end. I would not recommend

I enjoyed this book. I found most of the short stories entertaining. I often thought about their cleverness long after I had finished. However, a few of the stories were very bizarre and I stopped reading mid-sentence with a look of utter confusion on my face. The ending was not what I expected, but I did like how select characters from previous short stories came back and tied things up.

One of the better fiction books I've read in a while. Slightly unconventional in style, but incredibly gripping story line. Just wait until you get to page 99 (somewhere near the middle). Wrapped up in irony and truth, this novel is well worth the read.

I read through this and I have to say this is the best collection of stories I have read in a long time. I thought each one went to interesting places and he ties them together well. This book will make you think and you may want to reread it when you finish.

The sample started great, however when I bought it its unreadable on the nook app on my phone. It crashes it everytime I open it.
