While I am normally a fan of short stories, I really struggled with this book. I don’t know what it was, the writing style was good, but the stories just weren’t that intriguing. I felt like, as I was reading, that for the most part the stories could have been easily transplanted and take place in America, with the exception of the first and second to last ones, because they were focused on Bulgaria politics and international relations. That being said, I think the author has some definate talent and I’ll be checking out more by him in the future, maybe a full-size novel will work better.
I’m not going to give this book a rating because its really hard to assign a star rating to a book like this.
