If you like Karen Russell, this short story collection is right up your ally. I enjoyed most of the stories. Some of them were a little twisted, but good. I have yet to finish all the stories in this book yet, but I know it will call to me again when I can't sleep. ( )

An absolutely fascinating collection of stories. I found that it started off really strong in the fantasy realm, and waned a bit in the middle, but all of the stories were interesting and some of them were were really beautiful. ( )

I'm not going to lie. I think this has been the oddest book I have ever read. That being said, I still enjoyed some of the stories in it and the author definitely got me feeling some things for the characters in her stories. I would recommend this book to adults only. 3.5 out of 5 stars. ( )

I love short stories as a medium, and if you're not sure about short stories, you might really like this book. It's split up into parts that all have a theme, so they feel more like chapters to a novel than short stories.

... that's if you can handle the weirdness. This book is weird, but not weird in the way that I expected. It's well-crafted, so the weirdness feels normal. As a reader, you become accustomed to Ausubel's other-worldliness.

I read this book in about a day - I found this collection really absorbing, and overall there was only one short story that I really didn't enjoy so much.

If you like suburban strangeness, if you like short stories, if you like surrealism and magical realism, and you're not afraid of bodies or body parts, this might be a good choice for you. ( )

This is a really fantastic collection of short stories - full of magical realism, humor, and beauty. There are some quite bizarre things that take place in these stories, but they are told with such matter-of-fact-ness that you can just accept it and really lose yourself in the worlds the author creates.

My favorite was the story "Safe Passage". It features a group of grandmothers who find themselves mysteriously on a ship, sailing to somewhere. They struggle with the unknown nature of their journey, their situation, and ponder a lot of metaphysical questions about their lives. Other stories feature body parts growing in unusual places, a teenager who may or may not be giving birth to a human baby, a man who grows a drawer in his chest, among others.

If you enjoy short stories with a heavy helping of weird, beautiful language, and memorable characters, then this book is for you. ( )
