I really loved this collection of stories The language is poetic vivid and stylized without overkill Lots of comparisons are unusual but uite effective All the stories are sad in one way or another but the language is so beautiful that they never become depressingThe characters are very real and although most of them go through unusual experiences it is easy to experience the events through themThe first four stories have identical rather complicated structure with different story lines crossing each other It felt repetitive and I enjoyed those stories less than the others However the stories remained good reads because of the language the description of the scenery and the individual charactersThere is a lot of sadness in all stories Loss is everywhere All characters are either sad or no than content They live but they are not happy For some characters there is a feeling that this might change at some point in their future but for most it feels as if they will stay in this 'accepting' state forever The author allows one character to actually change and find happiness This scene is extremely beautiful and awesome in its simplicity
