Mike Russell ´ Nothing Is Strange Reader

Of Mike Russell so put on your top hat open your third eye and enjoy Nothing Is Stran Nothing is Strange is an illicit dairy based love affair between synthetic dreams and the sensors and nerves of your eyes It is nutritious but decadent written chocolateUnfortunately it isn’t possible to concentrate paper and idea into a human for this would be the most intriguing one to chat with But being your typical homunculus it would probably be flawed somewhere vital and mope about mourning its own existence for always and wouldn’t want to chat at all Nothing is perfect as a short story collection could be It molds the shapes which only exist in the act of sleep and solidifies them into a theatre of little masterpieces Nothing is hypnotic humorous horrifying and every other H word that we spit out in haste when we can’t really describe what we feel It’s truly neapolitan and not only because one of its stories harbors a serious ice cream fetishI stubbornly straddled the fence on this book for awhile even though it kept popping up and the guilt for that is real If you’re not sure just try a small bite It pretty much becomes a vortex after that and good luck running free from itMy particular favourites were “Dunce” “Escape From the Butcher’s Shop” “The Living Crown” “Extraordinary Elsie” and “Stan and Stan” Interestingly these all stand out because they challenge the innate fatalism of people One is not always meant to be what it seems they will at birth even if everyone they meet says otherwise Not when there is a whole world waiting out there whose mere touch can change anything More novelties and reviews on my blog Go crazy

Nothing Is Strange20 mind expanding short storiesInspiring liberating otherworldly magical surreal biza I received a free copy of this paperback book from Strange Books in exchange for an honest review Nothing is Strange is the first collection of short stories by Mike Russell I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to read this weird and wonderful collection after having enjoyed his work in Strange Medicine In this collection we get to see a wider variety of his style with twenty stories I liked all of the stories featured here but my favorites are The Warehouse The Meeting Barry and the Triplets Extraordinary Elsie Mask Man Stan and Stan and The Living Crown These uniuely surreal stories aren't for everyone but all of them are really well put together As for all of the stories I mentioned above I wouldn't say no to hearing a little from those worlds or having each of them expanded to something a bit longer If you like Karen Russell's style from Vampires in the Lemon Grove you may want to give strange in the best way tales a look Thanks again to Strange Books for this wonderful opportunity
