A nice collection of short stories, each relates to death or environmental apocalypse. These stories all make me want more from this author. Humorous, tragic, thought-provoking.

This was just very depressing. It just felt so true.

This book got so much attention when it came out and I was so excited to read it - and it was such a let-down. There are so many fantastic short story collections out this year, this one did not deserve so much review space.
