Sort order. Sep 25, Cecily rated it liked it Shelves: short-stories-and-novellas. Having just finished one book of short stories, I didn't expect to follow it with another, but I found this lying around and after I read the very contrasting reviews on GR, decided to make up my own mind before starting something meatier.

THE BOY WHO Having just finished one book of short stories, I didn't expect to follow it with another, but I found this lying around and after I read the very contrasting reviews on GR, decided to make up my own mind before starting something meatier.

I found the collection of short stories to be very depressing and once I had finished each one I felt like I had missed the point completely. I just didn't understand them and I found the writing to be quite muddled.
I can't decide if it's a case of 'it's not you, it's me', or 'no, it's definitely you I picked this up as I enjoyed 'The Woman in Black' but they just can't be compared.
