Review:
Reading this has reminded me how much I love short stories and how fantastic they can be.

The writing in this is vivid and beautiful, and the stories are really interesting. They have a subtleness about them and it catches you off guard when something shocking suddenly happens. There's also something interesting about the characters and the settings that really draw you in.

I also very much enjoyed the magical realism elements of these stories, and I can honestly say that this is one of the very best short story collections I've read, as I found almost all the stories in it to be amazing. I would highly, highly recommend it.
