This book will sleep with you on the first date. Then when you wake up beside it in the early morning you will spend some serious time considering whether it was great, or whether it would have been better to wait a bit. For me it was a bit wild, which I like, from a book, but also a little cold, a little impersonal.

It's definately ready and willing to give you a thrill, but even though you've spent some time with it, it still doesn't quite love you back.
Sometimes I like a quickie on the T, or during my lunch break, but I really want to feel like the book loves me back. This relationship was fun, but I just don't feel like the commitment was really there.
Don't get me wrong; I like this book, but in several of the stories I felt as though the strangeness was there to be strange, and that's not enough for me. I think the best surrealists and fantasy writers can tap easily into strange, but even the cryptic moments come together for cohesive delight. One story in this collection is not to be missed. In "Vanishing Act" the strangeness is more subtle, and the magic totally feasible. The characters feel the most real, the most lovingly conceived, and I, the reader, love it without reservation for its uncanny mixture of tragedy and hope.
This is a first collection, maybe the second collection will still have that spontaneity I love, but with a little more of the maturity I crave. From books. Jan 26, Mike the Paladin rated it it was ok Shelves: horror. I sort of feel I should apologize for this rating. I picked this up on the strength of some good ratings and reviews here.
But I just didn't like this book. I don't mean to be hard to get along with, but I found the stories rather silly. Again, I'm sorry if you like this book and please enjoy I wanted to like this book. Based on what I'd read I picked it up ready for some enjoyable weird stories. The first one left me cold This I sort of feel I should apologize for this rating.
This was the most "grope happy corpse I ever heard of. He finally puts it all together.. I almost put the book down there but I thought, no give it a chance. To Me It was like a book of television episode outlines, something that might have been seen on the old "Night Gallery" series. Okay sorry, if you enjoy this please continue to enjoy. If I want weird tales I'll go back to H.
Lovecraft and the like. I just found this one not for me. I almost went with one star I just didn't find it worth the time to read. Sorry I see a lot of you like or even love this collection, not me however. View all 8 comments.

I really love Kelly Link's writing style. It falls somewhere between magical realist and full-blown surreal, and it manages to be very emotionally affecting without sacrificing subtlety. It is frequently surprising, often delightful, occasionally horrific. Link can get me to agree to suspend my disbelief in some of the most wildly imaginative and implausible situations, and she has a real knack for being gently disturbing. However, I am only giving this collection, Link's earliest, which focuses I really love Kelly Link's writing style.

These stories are worth the reader's time, and some are downright brilliant. But some left me neutral, and the overall feeling I was left with was one less bowled-over than when I'd finished Magic For Beginners. My recommendation: If you've never read Kelly Link, start with Magic for Beginners , as it was wonderful and whimsical and weird and freaky and creepy across the board. Then, if you enjoy that, explore her earlier work in this collection, Stranger Things Happen. Jun 18, Ian rated it it was ok.
The only reason I finished this book is because I read Magic for beginners first and I liked that one slightly more than this collection. In the end, I guess Link just isn't for me. I like my stories to make sense, to have some internal logic and structure I can follow and, possibly, an ending or a hint of an explanation my mind can work upon.
Link's stories instead feel to me more like a dream - scenes, images, moments where time slows down like molasses or jumps all over the place, where stran The only reason I finished this book is because I read Magic for beginners first and I liked that one slightly more than this collection. Link's stories instead feel to me more like a dream - scenes, images, moments where time slows down like molasses or jumps all over the place, where strange things happen without reason beyond 'odd is cool'.
The characters felt just as dreamlike, devoid of life and motivations, and I couldn't really sympathize with them. Despite occasional age-related ill health, Bland continued to record new albums for Malaco and perform occasional tours alone, with the guitarist and producer Angelo Earl and also with B.
