After reading the titular novella of this book I was sure it would be five stars all the way through but not surprisingly as this goes with the territory for short story collections it was a variety of hits and misses The first and last stories stand out Fire Watch is a breathtakingly well constructed narrative that withholds just the right amount of information giving the reader glimpses at a future world through the protagonist s interactions with the past Of all the stories in this book this one had the best reveal and narrative tension Blued Moon comes close though it falls into humor than drama After those two Daisy in the Sun has the next strongest endingThe rest are somewhat weak which could just be me I have a strong preference for longer form stories in terms of narrative structure or it could be that the seeds of explanation are planted too early making the reveal obvious or too late making it seem shoehorned Though actually reflecting I think this is a case where one of Willis s biggest strengths is also a weakness Her worldbuilding in these stories is fantastic filled with offhanded little details that flesh everything out and make it feel real but this often ends up detracting from the emotional content of the story A Letter From The Clearys for instance was an emotional story related in a detached manner which robbed the ending of much punch Samaritan gave information on the world s background but seemed to lack crucial details about its present Lost and Found felt like of an exploration of concept than a real story had it had fewer characters it might have come off a little betterThat said I m definitely going to read Willis I picked this up as a manageable compared to Doomsday Book I mean introduction to her work and I m thoroughly impressed despite my specific misgivingsnecessary warning the reason this gets shelved as trigger warning is for the story All My Darling Daughters you can put the title shelf together to guess why it goes there It s a very very unpleasant reading experience and I recommend skipping it if you re wavering
