Read full description of the books:



I was intrigued by the idea of this book, but it fell short in the execution. I fail to see how the short stories (or microfictions) are connected to the readers mentioned. For example, here is one of the stories:

His mother's poodle is named after Esther, his great aunt who left the monastery in her 50s to study reproductive medicine.

Would it matter if the reader was a Caucasian male in his mid-thirties who was seen reading The God Delusion? Or if he was an Asian male, mid-20s, with neat black hair, wearing fogged glasses, black wharf jacket, and black corduroy cap, reading Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers?

To me it would make no difference and so it became tedious to try and find the link between these inspired imaginings and the real readers spotted on public transport. Eventually I gave up and just read the stories without caring about who inspired them. The stories elicited no emotions in me, they were just words on a page that I knew someone had made up. Wilson quotes the famous "short story" allegedly written by Hemingway, "For sale, baby shoes, never worn." That certainly inspires emotion in me.

Why then did these stories fall so flat for me? They weren't funny or sad or shocking. Several stories showcased cruelty, which I found cruel in itself, to imagine such horrible things about strangers.

Perhaps the book would be better in short bursts, and not read end to end as I did. It just didn't appeal to me, I thought the stories were uninspired and dull. I have a friend who makes up stories about strangers we see in public and he will often have me in stitches with the things he imagines. Perhaps these mundane stories pale in comparison.

Obviously many people enjoyed the book and I assume the review readers will be able to decide for themselves if it is something they might find interesting. If all else fails, one might at least find a new book to read, although Goodreads has made that so easy.
