    Voices in the Night Reader ÇDownload Voices in the NightI was reminded of this author on a recent episode of The Librarian is In podcast from the NYPL I had read one book of his short stories and went looking for finding this collection from last year All the stories are from 2011 forwardShort story collections are hard to rate because the stories vary Some of these are five star stories while some are three making this a solid five star collectionNo Yasodhara the happiest of all women is unhappy only when she is most happy when lying with her beloved husband staring into his eyes as he strokes her cheek tenderly

    Voices in the Night Reader ÇDownload Voices in the Nightuirky twisty things taken to the max out of all proportion A very different style of writing I really took to the mermaid story with out culture and trend setting people following blindly I could almost see this happening A few strange tweaking of old favorite tales makes this a collection to ponder think and savor

    Voices in the Night Reader ÇDownload Voices in the NightMy favorites were Phantoms and Miracle Polish Unfortunately these were the first two stories in the collection I thought the biggest problem with this collection was the resounding sameness In every story there was the same town of sameness with the same neighborliness that collided unwillingly with something magical or odd


  • Pablo Hernandez

    Voices in the Night Reader ÇDownload Voices in the NightAs in many of his previous short story collections Millauser's talent and imagination is on full display here his ability to depict the uncanny the mysterious and the fantastic is pretty much unrivalled Unfortunately after the halfway mark or so the book is close to 300 pages long there are uite a few short stories that felt either too similar too uninteresting or simply much too drawn out

    Voices in the Night Reader ÇDownload Voices in the NightI rarely sit down and read an entire short story collection cover to cover but Millhauser's Voices in the Night arrested me from the beginning while I browsed it in the library It enchanted me still haunts me got under my skin and I suspect it will stay there for uite a while Voices in the Night takes on the universal theme of the disuiet at the heart of the human condition We strive for the next degree the next great job home great love family yet in spite of our strivings that angst is still a part of us This wonderful collection places a mirror in front of humanity to show us that reason common sense and creature comforts simply aren't enough to uell that raging b

    Voices in the Night Reader ÇDownload Voices in the NightI loved 'Enchanted Night' and was looking forward to this collection and several stories hit those heights The Place The Wife and the Thief etc with fantastically dreamy atmosphere and strange desires but I got a bit bored with others re workings of fairy tales usually Ummm not sure I will bother to look for any of his work now I feel perhaps wrongly that I have read his best in 'Enchanted Night'

    Voices in the Night Reader ÇDownload Voices in the NightI pulled this out of the editorial pile at Goodreads because I liked the cover and had read the first story Miracle Polish in the New Yorker There's so much to love here One of the strongest and most creative collections I've read in long awhile Ri
