The Expense of a View by Polly Buckingham

This was a collection of short stories which is usually very good reading. However some of them were excellent and some were just fine.

Dealing with deep emotion in the midst of crisis, the stories are hard hitting and will make you think how you would react in similar situations. The stories cover the entire spectrum of humanity from male to female, homeless to parents to children. The feeling is dark and the emotional content is not easy to read.

  1. For some reason the short story collections I've read seem more dark and depressing than anything else.I'm glad to hear your found some in this collection to be excellent.

  2. I'm not crazy about dark and dramatic reads as much as I once was. I need uplifting books at this stage in my life. :)

  3. I don't often read short story collections, but I'm glad you enjoyed some of them. Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great week.

  4. Great review! I love short story collections, but it's been awhile since I've read one. I really need to get back into them!
