  1. I’m sorry this didn’t live up to your expectations! I liked Logan’s The Gracekeepers and The Gloaming a lot, but I had a similar experience with her short story collection The Rental Heart – there were a couple of stories that stood out, like ‘The Rental Heart’ itself, but the rest blended together.

  2. This sounds right up my street too! Your response to it sounds like how I felt about A Mouthful of Birds by Samanta Schweblin – namely that there were too many stories and not enough stand outs

  3. Great review! Pity it didn’t live up to your expectations. It does sound interesting but – perhaps the idea better than execution, as short stories tend to be for me. Thanks for reviewing it, I was quite curious!

  4. Great review! Kirsty Logan is an author I’ve been wanting to read but haven’t gotten around to yet. “Feminist horror stories” sounds like it should be an AMAZING collection, but I think I’ll stick to starting with one of her novels. It’s too bad this one didn’t quite live up to hopes for you!

  5. Bummer this one didn’t quite stick the landing! I’ve still yet to read anything by Kirsty Logan and it sounds like I shouldn’t start here, but I do have a copy of The Gloaming that I am looking forward to.

    • I guess some things are just too good to be true. This is still a solid collection, and I can see a lot of people loving it, but I wouldn’t recommend it as a starting place for Logan’s work.
