I find it odd that I am not fond of short Stories because, so far, all my own work is short. Regardless of that fact, this was a compilation of Tremblay’s work. The stories most prevalent theme was some sort of Armageddon.
The author does not provide a lot of details as to the reason for the various dying societies but instead focuses on the people it affects.
The darkness of the book is belied by the title but when reading the title, the nature of the Growing Things is yet to be discovered.
The acceptance of duck feeding was, perhaps, the most succinct depiction of societal end that I have ever read.
The stories are well written but I can’t say I liked the book.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
