Notes:
An expedition to Mars goes terribly wrong. A seaside pier collapses. A 30-stone man is confined to his living room. One woman is abandoned on a tiny island in the middle of the ocean. Another is saved from drowning. Two boys discover a gun in a shoebox, and a group of explorers find a cave of unimaginable size, deep in the Amazon jungle. Here, Mark Haddon demonstrates two things: first that he is a master of the short form, and second that his imagination is even darker than we had thought.

Does this author know how to write a short story or what? Fabulous reading. Tone, style, vocabulary all excellent. Convenient to dip in and out off albeit very hard to putdown. Wide variety of topics from every day life to fact based to Sci Fi.
