Something a bit more than a collection of loosely joined short stories - the links are obvious between some of them, and less obvious with others. A little disappointing in that I was waiting for a couple of pieces of jigsaw to appear than didn’t turn up (isn’t that always the way with jigsaws though?). But then it does make me want to read it over and see what I missed the first time around. Marked down from five stars to four because a couple of the stories didn’t seem nearly as good as the rest, but the ones that are good are very good.
