Mediocre short srory collection.

I found the narration boring. The narrator used the same vpice for every male and every female throughout the entire collection. Some of the stories were almost good, but most mediocre in my opinion.

slightly disappointed...

I've read several of Ketchum's novels and absolutley loved every one of them. he is one of my all time favorite authors. this collection of short stories just didn't quite hit the same sweet spot for me as the novels of his have. everything was well written and told but several of the stories didn't feel like stories but like a detailed retelling of a news event, like I was just reading an article not a fiction which may be for others but it just wasn't for me
