If these were the best stories of the year it couldn't have been the best harvest they've had in a while. There was only one story I really like and it was the last one in the book. There were about other two I kind of liked but fell flat by the middle of the story. Interesting ideas, but lacking on the execution part. The narrations were all over the place, ending up being confusing/vague when trying to be 'mysterious'. I couldn't care for most of the characters, their lives surrounded by so much decadence. All but the last one left me with a bad aftertaste.
