Reviewed by Cherie Fisher for Reader Views (7/07)
Owen Egerton has compiled a book of small stories in "How Best to Avoid Dying." I have to say that I had mixed feelings as I read through some of the stories. It is very difficult to describe my feelings about them as they had the strangest affect on me. I was very disturbed by many of them, but something about them compelled me to read on. I don't think a book has ever had quite that affect on me before. The author is an excellent writer and definitely knows how to draw a reader in.
