How in the world I stumbled across this book and proceeded to seek it out to buy it I have no idea But I did, and when it came from , I was surprised to see the book was a mini book Slightly smaller than a normal sized book, but not one of those teeny tiny books Anyway, the stories were a little weird Some of them I felt a little pang of recognition and familiarity, I could empathize with certain bland feelings expressed in some of the stories others I felt were just reaching Like I get what she was going for, to capture a little bit of that teeny angst depressiveness that for no reason sadness Mixed in with a little bit of life is shit and full of problems ness But they we re all really short short stories, and I think she had in mind stories that she s heard and read before and tried to emulate it rather than have any real original thoughts of her own cuz nothing really resonated with me, it just felt a little like deja vu Like I ve read something sorta like this before, tons of somethingsbut overall, meh It s short, give it whirl if you like short stories about mundane and bleak aspects of life and some people actually do and this is fine.
