This book was creative imaginative, and emotional. It's on the brink of fantasy, with enough real-world connections and relationships to be relatable. It's a great weekend read. This book deals with the subject of death, but it's not to "heavy" or deep. I think that it mixes fantasy/sci-fi with rational, real world situations, and that makes for a good mix!
I found this book to be dull and redundant, lacking content and creativity. I feel like the author was trying too hard to write disturbing stories and ignoring the quality of her writing. Overall, the concepts of the stories seem good, but I would have liked to see more interesting dialouge and problem/solution plots.
The most enjoyable part of this book was the sources section at the end. If you need to know who provided a picture of someone hugging an elephant, this is where you need to go. Sadly, I had to laugh at that. The only part of this book worth your precious time.
