I have seen multiple mini-stories online before, and when I first picked up this book, I did not know what I was expecting. There is no pattern in the flow of the narration, some focus on fairy tales, others were on AI, but all of them were thought-provoking (as the blurb rightly claims). Every next couple of lines had me itching to discuss it with more people. Finally, I showed a few to my husband, and then I ordered my own copy!
I very rarely give in to the temptation to own a book I read, mostly because I am not a very big re-reader. This will probably be an exception for a while because I know for a fact that my husband wants to check them all out. It is not something that can be read silently. The illustrations in this copy do seem to add something extra to the work. A certain basic sense of humour and maybe a little bit of knowledge of the more popular stories is essential to relish the content (or so I feel).
I highly recommend this to people who either follow the author online or like bite-sized, intriguing stories.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers. The review, however, is solely based on my reading experience.
