Love the author, not this collection
I just started reading horror books by Clegg and was impressed, so I purchased this collection for those times I want to read, but don’t have the time to get involved in a novel I am unable to put down. I’ve read about half of the short stories in this collection and so far I’ve been frustrated at every single one. The plot, characters and stories, good. The endings? No closure. Too many unanswered questions.
