[ Pdf Pieces: A Collection of New Voices Û railway-history PDF ] by Stephen Chbosky ☆ This collection has received a fair bit of criticism, but I felt I got exactly what I was expecting These are pieces by relatively novice authors there are bound to be flaws But there are also highlights There are striking descriptions, quirky characters and a range of storylines Some stories are a little formulaic, and others don t really lead anywhere But one or two shine out, in particular for me Polaroid by Matthew Loren Cohen.
I enjoyed the stories although all were dismal My fav was the very last story.

I was thinking of putting this into by to read list because Chbosky is the editor and the description had me interested I decided to click on all the Authors listed and not a single one of them has actually written a novel since this publication New voices of the next generation Looks like they failed to choose some good ones.
These writers are really talented, and I always love the way some short stories can jump right into things and remain gripping They all kind of reminded me of stories that Chbosky would tell, so that was really good too.
