Review

Oliver Kaufman has done a wonderful job with this collection.

From the characterization in each, to the emotions evoked, to the way they enlightened the reader, I think that every moving part to these novels really came together and made this collection unforgettable.

Each of these were well balanced. The pacing and flow are spot on and I was thoroughly engaged throughout each of them.
