Synopsis: A collection of short stories about Endings.
Review: This is a tidy, clever, delightful collection of short stories each dealing with the theme of “Ending” – career, life, relationship – even solitary. A fast read the pulled me in from the start, the work explored how people deal with the ending of things in their life. I cannot name my favorite story, as each had a different flavor and each left a different impression on me. Kelley’s work spanned the gambit of emotions – from humor and love to fear, hate and death. He also achieved the delicate balance between easy read and intellectual depth. I would recommend this collection to anyone who wants a deep quick read.
I received this book free as part of LibraryThing’s Early Reviewer Program in exchange for my fair and honest review.
