There were many poignant moments in this short story collection, moments meant to make you question life and the meaning behind it. I am not ashamed to admit some stories went right over my head; as though, I missed the meaning being imbued by the words. However, while I did not laugh out loud to any of the stories, several of them got a soft chuckle or a little gasp.
If you are interested in far-fetched ideas, some involving random celebrities, than this collection of short stories will keep you glued to the page. Many of the best stories are the longer ones, which often end abruptly, but leave you with questions that push you to think and contemplate. "Dark Matter" was one of those stories, which was sort of all over the place. However, the story was funny in its random jumps from topic to topic. The moment when the narrator threatens the scientist, to tell him about dark matter, is an analogy to how this book sometimes makes you feel. You are at once accosted, but intrigued and wanting to know more, while essentially being left behind. You are put off kilter, and you just continue to read, hoping to right yourself, but failing.
