Enjoyable read. 10 short but powering stories. You don't have to read them all in one sitting as each story is its own but you'll want to. The characters emotions and thought patterns are so well incorporated into the stories that you can picture the stories as movies in your mind. Unexpected twist and turns of the characters actions turn each story into your favorite. Justin Bog is a wonderful writer that really knows how to draw you in with some of the most common human traits and yet powering stories. Sandcastle still has me in shock.
