The Crooked Closet by A. Henry Keene [2.5 stars]



From the Description:

Stories of dark longing, alienation, abuse, and revenge.

The Crooked Closet is a book of short stories. For most of the book I wondered " What in the heck did I just read?!?" Most of the stories felt like being in the mind of someone who is quickly going crazy. There were however a few high notes. Star-Crossed Lovers, a tale of alien love. Jacob, a look at the monster in the closet, and Filthy Water were ok. The best stories for me were the connected tales Lazy Acres and Delores. I could actually follow the plot on these two, so I would consider them the best of the collection. 2.5 Stars.
