The Wilds [book, audiobook]

 The Wilds [book, audiobook]

THIS IS A BUNCH OF SHORT STORIES BY ONE AUTHOR. THE STORIES ARE PRETTY GOOD BUT BY FAR THE MOST INTERESTING THING IS HOW THE STORIES REUSE A LOT OF CHARACTERS/IDEAS/THEMES BUT NEVER FEEL LIKE THEY ARE IN CONVERSATION WITH EACHOTHER. SOMETHING ABOUT IT MAKES IT FEEL LIKE THESE WERE NOT WRITTEN WITH A COLLECTION IN MIND AND YOU WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO NOTICE REPEATS. LIKE THERE IS TWO STORIES WHERE A WOMAN GOES TO A HEALTH SPA AND CHEATS ON HER BOYFRIEND, AND ONE IS SCI-FI THEMED AND ONE IS CAVEMAN THEMED AND THAT VERY MUCH FEELS LIKE THE TWO STORIES SHOULD GO TOGETHER. BUT THEY REALLY JUST SEEM LIKE THEY WERE WRITTEN SEPARATE AND READING BOTH IS NOT ALLOWED OR SOMETHING.  EVERY PRE-TEEN GIRL HAS ONE BREAST BIGGER THAN THE OTHER AND WATCHED ELEPHANT MAN. 

PS. THE STORIES ARE ALL EXTREMEMLY PREMISE HEAVY AND SO A LOT SET UP A SITUATION AND JUST ABRUPTLY END, AND THAT FEELS GOOD ON ANY ONE STORY WHERE IT'S LIKE "WOW, ALL THESE POSSIBILITIES" AND YOU DON'T NEED THE BOOK TO SPELL IT OUT, BUT EVERY SINGLE STORY DID IT AND IT GOT INCREASINGLY ANNOYING.
