Dark and weird short stories

The Pier Falls: And Other Stories - Mark Haddon

Some are good. Some are haunting.

 

Short stories were really my cup of tea. So I'm not enjoying this as much as I like to. 

 

It is a just a matter of trust. I trust that some stories would be good and hit the spot. Some would be disappointing.

 

This is one of those book that you read while waiting for a phone call, or the next movie ot be on.

 

Just taking a break from doing something else. 

 

I need much more warm up for liking a character in a story, be it in a book, a comic or on TV. 

It is like one of those Goosebumps stories with some hits and misses.
