Shizuku's Sleepy Reviews

Ill mannered, bad tempered, and set in my ways. When I write a review I'm starting a conversation. Not writing a f#%^#ng book report. Don't like it then go the f^%k away!

Tales from the Nightside

Tales from the Nightside - Simon R. Green To my sick and unadulterated glee I giggled throughout most of these short stories. I know that it's just not normal to enjoy this as much as I have, but the clichés and plot twists remind me of an episode of Family Fued with Steve Harvey. I was glad that all of the short stories were put together. I was really starting to miss the Nightside books. Green takes the grotesque and turns it humorous.
