The Private Confessions of Perfect StrangersA collection of six poignant sometimes heart wrenching sometimes heart warming and freuently witty first person short stories from award winning author Andrew BissThey say never judge a book by its cover but it's something many of us are apt to do at some point or another Judging a person by their appearance is eually unwise as none of us can know the personal turmoil behind the public façade of a perfect stranger But what if we couldEach of these. I found this book for free on and thought it sounded interesting and it was short so I figured why not give it a try I’m glad I did This was a series of short stories that don’t have a true beginning or end They’re small little looks into people’s lives the inner thoughts of a fat person an abused wife a man with a terrible secret a serial killer on death row a woman reflecting on a death and her part in it and a woman dealing with the loss of her son by discovering a new life on the Internet They’re little pieces of the person’s everyday life little slices that while short tell you uite a lot about the narrators And the tone ishard to describe It is many things at different times witty sarcastic depressing disheartening angry But mostly it’s matter of fact These people are accepting of their lives no matter how crappy And while that doesn’t sound very appealing necessarilyI couldn’t stop reading Something just kept drawing me in I think it might have been the fact that these characters could have been anyone walking down the street real people who I could meet any day And some of the characters resonated with me I saw myself in them or I found myself if not agreeing with most of the characters and their choices then at least understanding why they did what they didBig Girl I rather enjoyed this opening story While I’m not as big as the narrator I am pretty darn close and I know exactly what it feels like to have people give you crap for your weight And I agree with the narrator about how it’s easy to say you feel great in your body and yet in reality you don’t I love Peggy’s take on it and found myself laughing throughout This is the only funny story really in this book and is the most light hearted of the bunch Be forewarnedThe Replica This story was hard to read The narrator is an abused wife who’s still with the abusive husband who apparently has a thing for teenage boys It describes what her life is like now and reflects on how it became like this It’s very introspective and heartbreaking at the same time She’s become soaccepting of her fate that you just want to yell at her to wake up and get out of that situation And yet things are not always that easy I almost skipped the story once I started reading it but I was so drawn in I couldn’t stopA Small Act of Vandalism Wow definitely not what I was expecting The small act of vandalism led to a much shocking admission I don’t really know what else to say about this story other than I can’t really judge the narrator because I don’t know what I would have done in the same situationOne Night Only I couldn’t help it Once I read the title the song from Dreamgirls got stuck in my head which oddly enough went along with the story The narrator is giving one last performance before his death in a way even if he’s the only one attending Gives you an insight in to how people like him a serial killer think No remorse little regret and yet one of the lines got to me”No ya don’t hurt kids” I mean the guy’s a serial killer someone without morals who one would think society would be better off without and yetyou don’t hurt kids One rule one moral he followed and believed in That right there prevents you from just writing off the narrator as a murderer with no morals becausehe has them Not a lot of them but they’re still there And that makes him a two dimensional character There’s to him than just his crime even if we see very little of it And that fits in with these stories which are in effect just little glimpses into these characters and their inner workingsOrgan Failure Extremely short two pages on Kindle This one was a bombshell in a way;

    This was a very disturbing set of short stories disturbing mostly because they all feel real in one way or another You can basically picture any normal average person experiencing these situations so at times it was rather hard to continue to read Big Girl Very sad and I’m sure it’s agonizingly true for many people out there I almost didn’t finish the story but then honestly felt like it was my duty to finish it just out of support for those people who deal with these kinds of confidence issues The Replica A woman who realizes she’s basically become her own doppelganger by not taking control of her own life and allowing someone else to do it for her A great commentary on how the general populace want to blame someone else for where their life is rather than taking responsibility for their own decisions in those circumstances Deciding not to take the reins of your life is a decision in and of itself that must be dealt with A Small Act of Vandalism A man having to deal with the conseuences of his actions towards his late Mother A very poignant and tragic story of what people are willing to do go through and live with when it comes to someone we love unconditionally One Night Only A man living out his final moments on death row like it’s a reality show with him as the star guest Fascinating I loved him recounting how it started and escalating to the point he was caught due to him getting lazy I also really appreciated that he expressed regret for at least one of the individuals on his list Goes to show you even serial killers can have moments of humanity Organ Failure My favorite of them all A woman who takes her life into her own hands by not reaching out to protect the one who has been her biggest enemy even in his most desperate hour I feel like I can relate to this woman Not because I’ve done the same thing as she has but because I’ve been with people who’ve made me feel like that would’ve been the only way out I’m one of the lucky ones though I’m sure this happens often than people realize or want to give credit to WYWH This one made me depressed More because of the poor woman feeling like she needs to be someone else rather than what happened in the past with her son I felt like this type of story is probably common that people thinkI will be looking for additional work by this author Although most of it was depressing and sad it’s realistic and hard hitting which I prefer

    in a word WOW Aptly named book of Excellent set of short stories I couldn't even begin to give a rundown Each story is VERY different and all of them worth a look The constant theme through out is introspection and every character voice is different Well done and a GREAT way to spend an afternoon in the sun
