    I loved the longer short stories!

    7 / 10

    I'm not a great one for short stories, as I find the end often less satisfying, but I liked number 10 ' Some Children Wander by Mistake.' This really was creepy!

    However: the book was well worth the cover price for the two novellas alone.

    The 1st and the last were both much longer (70 and 112 pages respectively) This gives the author time to develop the chill and include the humorous one-liners! As this is so much part of the skill of John Connolly it is hard to see how he could achieve the same effect with short stories,.

    The first 'The Cancer Cowboy' is a compelling read and the last about Charlie Parker. Enough said.
