From the Rooftop

From the Rooftop by Christopher Meades
Short Stories

My friend gave me this book to read and am I happy she did. This is a great collection of short stories. I rarely read short stories but these had me engrossed. The stories range from the sad to happy, lovable to bizarre.

I laughed out loud when I read Outsourcing. What a great commentary on our telephone connections. I felt truly sad when reading about Alzheimer's in Hold On.
Bizarre is the word I connect with The Punctuation Code. I don't think I 'got' it.

My favourite story is 20 years for love. The story really has a message and yet is sort of funny as well. It is about how we see others and how they see us.
