I was definitely curious about this one when I saw it on Netgalley. I was looking around for books to read during the time of stay-inside (which is probably still happening at the time I post this review) (rationing books, yay) and this one looked quite interesting. Short stories of just a few sentences with a dark twist? Sign me up.
And while I did enjoy the book and I did find some stories that I enjoyed (3 of which I shared on Twitter) many of the stories were not so sinister, sometimes not even slightly. While they were enjoyable those not so sinister stories, I did come here for sinisterness (if that is a word??).
Luckily there were a few sinister story that had me shiver in delight at their sinistress (again is this a word??).
I also did like that each story was just comprised of a few sentences but still felt like a story. Some I would definitely see expanded into a few more sentences.
There are also illustrations to accompany each short story and I quite like the style, though it was kind of funny that the illustrations were often more sinister than the stories were.
All in all, hit and miss but still I am happy I picked this one up and I would say try it out.
