Amber (10/27/11)

bleak, yet thoroughly entertaining
This book was an extremely well-written and imaginative collection of short stories, each one mildly incorporating the tragic events of 9/11. The stories range from intriguing to shocking, and I found the premise behind each of them highly creative. The humor was plentiful, dark, and rather pleasing. I also enjoyed following along with each characters' unusually morbid trains of thought.

One of the ever best
It is a very good short story with a strange atmosphere which you unconsciously drown in and cannot get out easily. During the story you feel close to the hero and even feel his suffers deeply in yourself maybe because you also have had the same experience in your life. you will like reading it since it releases your suppressed cries.
