I'm not going to rate this because I'm not going to finish reading it. I read the first story, and I can tell I am inclined to like this book a lot. The problem is she has what I think of as a very "sticky" writing style. Which means that you read her work, and then you rush over to your desk and start pounding out stories that try to achieve the same voice. All praise due to her, but this is dangerous stuff to have around when you're trying to complete your own work, free and clear and original. I'll save this for a time when I'm not making headway on any of my projects and am in desperate need of inspiration.
