Mana recenzija/My review

12 savādi stāsti, kur vairākos ir tēli arī atkārtojas, un tādā veidā tiek veidota savstarpēja saistība. To paveic arī vardarbība un nāve.

Grūti saprast, ko autors vēlējies līdz galam pateikt. Lai gan grāmatā ir drusku no šausmām, trilleriskuma un erotikas ir, bet tomēr nebija līdz galam attiecīgo sajūtu.

Vislabāk patika tieši pirmie trīs stāsti The Poetic Line, The Moment of Truth un Haze ar traku režisoru, kurš gatavs nogalināt aktieri, ja tas viņa izdomāto un iztēlē radīto nespēj izspēlēt uz skatuves simtprocentīgi. Kā arī viens laimīgais aktieris/aģents Džeisons, izdzīvojušais.

Pārējos diemžēl sarežģīti nosaukt par labiem esam, varbūt vienkārši pārāk īsi. Ir gan runājoši kaķi (Forcello) un balerīna bez galvas, gan staigājoši un stāvoklī esoši manekeni (Breathe).

                                                                                                                          

12 strange and quirky short stories in which some characters do show up more than once, and that’s one way how they might be linked. Another thing could be violence and death.

Sometimes it was hard to understand what the author tried and wanted to say. Although there is a bit of horror, suspense and erotic, it wasn’t quite enough.

For me I liked the first three stories The Poetic Line, The Moment of Truth and Haze the best. In them there is a crazy director who without hesitation will shoot the actor if he doesn’t play on the stage what he has imagined for 100%; and also one lucky actor/agent Jason Pastfore who survives.

The rest of the stories are hard describe as (very) good, maybe they were just too short for me. You will meet talking cats in Forcello, as well as a ballerina without head and walking and pregnant mannequins in Breathe.
