psycho logical the short stories of mike miller book 1 Reviews
I got this one for free on amazon and it was stuck in my to-read list for a while. I regret that I did not read it earlier because the short stories were so good. Some of them were funny, moving or creepy. I especially liked the story about the radioactive boy; it moved me to tears. Read it if you are ooking for a short and nice escape from everyday life.
These stories were really all over the place (in a great way.) From heavy to light, fantastic sci-fi to quiet naturalism, every entry in here is quite different from the other. There's even slight dashes of artwork and poetry to add to the eclectic fun of the collection.If any one common theme unites the works, it's a shared sense of humor. While maybe a pair of them were completely grim and serious, the rest are all quite light and whimsical. But again, even the humor has a nice spectrum to it. Some moments are big, stupid slapstick, while others have a wry and subtle humor or maybe some dark-black comedy.The standouts were "Randolph Rudolph the Radioactive Boy," a very bittersweet love story with a science-fiction twist, and "Taking Care of Wiggles," a fun romp about a lazy boy tasked with putting a bad dog to sleep. But I enjoyed all the stories here. Several of them were quite short, as these stories are all just long enough to make their point enjoyably without artificially dragging things along to some supposed quota on length.It all reminds me a little of Vonnegut, who blended heartfelt stories and clever plots with altered reality and mischievous jokes.
