    I read this book many years ago but only now think I understand it a saddening tapestry full of beauty I shall read it a few times I think

    According to the back cover of the book the stories are ‘frightening haunting and unforgettable’ I’d rather rephrase that and call them ‘touching and sad’ instead But although I liked the stories I’m left with mixed feelings about this book As mentioned the stories are touching and often sad but for me personally it just became ‘ of the same’ after reading the first few stories and putting the book aside for than a week didn’t solve my ‘problem’ Which is a bit of a shame really as I had probably appreciated the book and given it a better rating if there had only been two or three stories in it instead of ten which of course would not have been possible as the book only has a limited number of pages as it is
