    1. It is very rare that I put only 1 star to a put.I honestly do not see what this read brought me. The writing style has nothing exceptional.The stories are, apart from dark and murky (which is definitely not my cup of tea!), far fetched, and too superficial. Even though they are short stories, you could dig deep in a character, an event, but there it seems to be like a boat floating on the surface of water without goal.
