    4. It s an interesting collection of stories I found that three of them resonated with me a bit than the others, and these were the three that were disturbing I probably liked them a bit just because I found them to be thought provoking in other words, they really made me think I found myself turning them around in my mind after I had finished the book The stories certainly seem disparate I could take the three I liked 2, 3 and 5 and put them into their own volume, and take the other two and put [...]

    5. This collection of short stories has a little bit of everything as far as genre and characterization go I ve read some of the author s short stories by themselves, but having several together, with both the unique and the bizarre, was a treat to read.

Five degrees of short stories.Three of these stories feature a woman who s trapped in some way Thank You For Calling features a woman who s economically trapped, working for a call center, taking calls from lonely people who need a friendly ear She wants a regular, day job, so she can see her husband This is an excellent job of expressing boredom in a character without creating it in the reader In The Last Six Miles a woman is battling to complete a marathon, after being trapped by depression an [...]

    12. I received this book for free from the author in exchange for a review.As you can tell by the synopsis Fourth Degree Freedom is not only a short story, but it is also the title for a collection of 5 short stories However, they should appropriately be termed short shorts Not that it s a bad thing, it s all a matter of preference The downside is that all of the stories in Heily s collection start out in the center of the action and they don t really have a definitive conclusion The upside is that [...]

    13. Excellent Quick read Like the last collection of stories by Libby Heily The Victory Rule, the variety of tones, styles and ideas in these five stories could easily fool the reader into thinking each one had a different author.Thank You for Calling Sweet and Sad An interesting sociological slice of life, set in a call center for lonely people Kind of Todd Solondz, with a dash sunlight.The Event Wow, great horrific concept I won t give any of it away I would be trying to pitch this idea to Eli Ro [...]
