It's also stories of the unusual. And it's unpredictable.

    I received this book through the Good Reads Firsf Reads Program in exchange for an honest review. I have been slogging through this book for a month and just can't finish it. There are a few good stories, but I didn't like most of them. I didn't have high hopes when the first story had characters called no-uns. Not very creative in my opinion.

There is a story about "Mickey Mouse" (the author used a different name of course) being a drunk that didn't sit well with me. There was another story about a woman's fear of a can opener, which seemed silly. That's not to say there weren't some good stories. There was a story about two women getting lost in the woods and the spirits of frozen people brought them home. Another about humans trying to take over another planet that I liked as well. Overall though, I wouldn't recommend this book.
