Jigs Reels review ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook review Ë PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ö Joanne Harris Each of the twenty two tales in this enchanting collection is a surprise and a delight melding the poignant and the possible with the outrageous the magical and sometimes the eerily haunting Wolf men dolphin women. These short stories suffer from being rather unsubtle and predictable almost all of them end with an anvilicious twist or punchline in fact two of them end with the exact same did you see what I did there move The horribly shallow subject of the tale is actually a child What a sad commentary on our times nods solemnly There are some interesting ideas or starts of ideas in here and Harris is certainly a competent and at times uite evocative writer but the repetitive buh dum ching pattern of the endings of almost all these stories and a weird unfinished this is stopping just as it s getting interesting aspect to some of the others really didn t work for me Harris says in her introduction that she has a harder time with short fiction than with novels I empathize but I shouldn t be able to see it on the page
