  2. Put simply, this is an amazing book and not to be missed Years from now, some of these stories will still wander through my mind like the very best kind of ghost Adams Wright has this magician s talent for breathtaking imagery that makes my teeth curl with envy It s so good that in some stories, like Tiger Bright, if you asked me to explain exactly what the metaphor meant to me, I m not sure I could, yet I feel the unquestionable truth of the image like one would faced with a tiger s stare Yuri, [...]


  3. Review originally posted on Bibliophilia, Please.I really enjoy short story anthologies, but I had no idea what a fucking treat The Thing About Great White Sharks would be I m using coarse language to convey feeling, not my trashiness, by the way This is literary fiction just the way I like it with a little bit of magical realism, a touch of sci fi, and a mix of something else It s shocking, horrible, and wonderful, all rolled into one.My favorite two stories in the collection are The Thing Abou [...]


  4. Lean and sparse, these very short little stories paint stories with space for your head to fill in the gaps Sci fi, magical realism, historical, near future They are edgy and uneasy I picked up and put down often Favorites were the title story, Yuri, in a Blue Dress, and Keeper of the Glass Don t expect happy endings, and a lot of the time, don t expect well, it s an ending, Jim, but not as we know it.


  5. This is a special collection filled with magic, the surreal, and the very human Full review on my blog Guiltless Reading.



  6. While the collection wasn t horrible or really even bad, though I finished it last night and it was the only thing I was reading I m having a hard time recalling than bits and pieces The only thing sticking in my memory are a few scenes from the title story If you asked I think I might be able to name one, maybe two other stories.Much of this came across like writers workshop exercises as opposed to someone sitting down and just writing It feels like the author was in a classroom and asked Writ [...]


  7. Fiction, Short Stories Many of these are set in the near future or in dystopian worlds In the title story, after the fever has turned all flora fauna into human attackers, Jennifer is conscripted by the government for fear testing Put into a room or a pool with such animals as pythons and sharks, her reactions are monitored for use in the military.In Sheila, the story I remember most clearly, an elderly man faces the destruction of his beloved robotic dog It s heart breaking.Other stories includ [...]


  8. Couldn t finishThe fantasies of this author are beyond my reading scope More than unbelievable tales of war, sharks, orchids and other topics were grouse at times and didn t appreciate the foul language Short stories, yesbut not enjoyable reading Just couldn t finish this book


  9. I just loved these stories The only way I can describe the feel of them is to mention MTV s show called Liquid Television that aired in the 90s Just like those surreal animated short films, these stories will have you going on quick little mental trips This is not to say that the author s writing is in any way immature She is articulate without being verbose and also possesses a straightforward style and the ability to grab your attention quickly All of these qualities lend themselves very well [...]


  10. Fascinating, weird collection that veers from kids grieving a friend to bats that feed on sound to flowers that solve mysteries to the title story, which is awesome, and odd sci fi concepts and invocations of myth.


  11. Going nowhereThis book was a lot of short stories about nothing but nonsense taking you nowhere and ending in nowhere Every time


  12. Love it, love it, love it Look, I m not being useful here I never know how to talk about short stories I just want to say that I absolutely love it


  13. Many of these short stories were fantastic, incredible depictions of a persons love for something other human a dog, a winged being, the future.




  14. Fun Stories Several stories were memorable, and I enjoyed the majority of them Good storytelling technique overall 10 10 would read all of it again.


  15. Maybe I shouldn t read George Saunders and then immediately read authors who are trying to sound like George Saunders.



  16. Note I received a free copy of this book through First Reads This is a slim collection of 15 stories, the majority of which have sci fi, supernatural, or fantasy elements I enjoyed it What I like best about it is Wright s tendency to leave ambiguous endings if you re the sort of reader who wants everything explained and wrapped up neatly it won t appeal to you, but I like stories that leave mysterious aspects for the reader to ponder.The most consistent theme here is that many of the stories con [...]


  17. Review Excerpt What a great and inventive collection of stories I was hooked from the start with Sheila which had me in tears A little embarrassing since I was sitting in the exam room of my allergist and she walked in to find me wiping my eyes and stuffing the book back into my purse I do defy anyone with a beloved pet not to get misty over this story of a judge who will be breaking the law lose his pension if he doesn t have his mechanical springer spaniel put down when robotic pets are outlaw [...]


  18. So you ve heard me sing the praises of short stories so much here that I m sure you re sick of it, but this weekend proved one of my points perfectly shorts are an excellent choice when you can t focus on longer reading for whatever reason My reason, I ve been sick all weekend And it was the kind of sick where I felt like I was on the brink of falling asleep pretty much every minute of the day Sore throat, mild cough, big time lethargy it made Bosch watching a natural choice, but it was not cond [...]


  19. What a stunning debut short story collection from Rebecca Adams Wright It s been a long time since I ve read a book that has moved me so deeply Wright shines in many elements her gorgeous prose, quirky sense of humor, vast range everything from sci fi to fantasy to magical realism to historical fiction and delightful imagination, just to name a few but what she excels at most is her empathetic, profound understanding of people the way we blame ourselves for things beyond our control, the fierce [...]


  20. Imaginative, unusual and full of variety Wright s clever wit and humorous tone are on full display throughout this collection containing stories both extremely brief and lengthy Even though most of the book covers dark subject matter, I never felt like it became difficult or depressing to read There are only a handful of tales that I didn t connect with or failed to engage me completely the point and meaning of The Other Husband and Yuri, in a Blue Dress sailed over my head the latter of which I [...]


  21. The Thing About Great White Sharks is a quick read with a mix of odd short stories The stories range from sci fi futuristic to mysteries with a paranormal twist I ll start by saying that I definitely think there is an audience out there for this type of anthology There is something for every reader in the book.Having said that, I m not sure I was the right audience for this book Starting off with the first story, Sheila which was really sad , I found the tone of the book to be dark and kind of d [...]



  22. This book was not at all what I was expecting I cried than I thought I would I m looking at you, Sheila Melville Loves Hawthorne was such a I don t even know the longing and sweetness, and then the reality This book is full of heartbreaking stuff It s sort of a bummer or, I thought so , but in a realistic way If you like stories that make you think and that aren t sugar coated and rose colored glasses type of stuff, then read this It s full of very strange stories that wait a second It s Kafkae [...]


  23. This short story collection is a marriage between old skool literary chops and speculative fiction story premises It s a good marriage, though on the whole my opinion is that Wright is making speculative fiction palatable for literary types, vs the other way round The writing is so strong and confident, this does not seem like a collection by a debut author I very much liked the title story and the stories to do with animals, but there are a few stories in the collection that stray from this the [...]


  24. A collection of literary short stories, some having a fantasy sci fi twist to them Nothing bad with the language used, but nothing brilliant The stand out stories in the collection are Sheila, Alien Parasite and The Space We Share, Sheila being unexpectedly tender The historical stories of the collection like Poland, 1952 just felt off to me for some reason that story in particular feeling insincere Another review has said they like the open endedness to the stories, but I can t say I m a fan, [...]


  25. Like with all short story collections this was very hit and miss The first story in the book is honestly my favorite My heart is forever shattered over like 14 pages The one thing that is great about this book is how consistently well written all of the stories are Rebecca Adams Wright is a fantastic writer i plan on putting her on my favorite authors list I won this book in a giveaway but even if i hadnt i would have picked it up in a book store simply because the cover is so cool It got like a [...]
