A meeting point for you and me

Irene on Man from the South and other Stories

“The seven stories in Man from the South and other Stories are brilliantly funny and unforgettable”


To start with, I’ve found the book a bit strange because its stories were too fantastic and incredible. Anyway, the plots of the stories were quite easy to understand and fast to read. Although the things that happened were completely senseless, I enjoyed reading them. Of course, they’re afternoons’ readings due to the fact that they are too scary for the evenings.


            Firstly, the stories weren’t funny at all. In fact, the writer is really cruel and there have been murders and deaths along the whole book. The most disgusting of all was, without any dough, that one in which the main character, a young boy, was killed in a factory at the same time that same pigs to make food for people.

From my point of view, the author is trying to make a joke from a serious theme. It doesn’t seem to me as if death was an issue to make a comedy with.

            Secondly, I agree with the sentence, the stories are unforgettable because they really surprise you while you are reading. That is surely because we have never read something like that before.


            To sum up, I thing this is a good book to read if you like to be surprise by a book. But I would rather read a good novel instead of those short stories.
