Embracing science fiction, suspense, and the supernatural, this genre-bending collection explores the contradictions and complexities of the human condition.
Sometimes exuberantly funny, sometimes bittersweet, Sugar will delight both new listeners and those familiar with Matthew Waterhouse's novels.

The thing I liked most was the diversity of the four stories in this collection
The author is a good actor and displays depth and nuance in multiple characters. The various characterizations and accents display an exciting talent.
The thing that surprised me most about this collection is that I've found myself thinking about these hilarious and sad stories for weeks afterward, haunted by them and compelled alternatively to reread passages and relisten to the audios time and again. The tales are entertaining on the surface level as well as fine literature for the thinking person. They're even better the second and third time around. The unabridged Audible version of this collection is most enjoyable, with Waterhouse giving pitch perfect voice to the multiple characters. It is highly recommended. I have not read such a fun, entertaining and fulfilling work in 30 years.
