My favorite story was the first one, it drew me in straight away and I loved every second of it! But, as the book went on, it became more painfully obvious that the book needed editing, that it was regularly walking a very fine line as far as female characters were concerned, and quite often there was no meaning behind the violence.
The book starts off with the amazing idea that every story in the book will be good, but it was an unrealistic idea because you can't please everyone. If you buy this book, don't read the introduction where they put their book on such a high pedestal that disappointment is guaranteed.
Don't take this review the wrong way, there are some very talented writers in this book, but it is full of violence for the sake of violence. If you love violence for shock value rather than there being any meaning behind it, then this book is for you. If you don't mind buying this and only reading the parts where the violence is backed up by a good story, then I'd tell you to give this book a chance because there were some stories in there that I really did enjoy!
I'd liked to point out that I don't regret buying the book, despite my negative comments.
For anyone who is wondering, I knocked one star off because there are typos in the book.
