Wonderful, wondrous stories. Rosenbaum has a knack for capturing gentle, pensive moods, even in the midst of violence, and you find yourself wrapped up in these little vignettes: rooting for the protagonist, disbelief suspended. "The Valley of Giants" in particular is a perfect example of his storytelling style. Don't want to give it away, but the reason why no one ever leaves the Valley of Giants is both heart-breaking and haunting. Don't skip this one!
I didn't like this at all. The writing is sub-par, the themes and plot are confusing at best, and the author's predilection for writing huge chunks of the story in italics gets very tiresome, very fast.
Fantastic collection of short stories. Each one was original, entertaining, and left me wanting more. Download, print it, read it online--just read it!
