    The Stone Thrower MOBI ä The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone kindle, thrower epub, The Stone free, The Stone Thrower MOBISo this book is branded as science fiction One thing it definitely isn't is hard SF I'd say ''A Thousand Seams'' and ''An Industrial Evolution'' are soft SF But don't expect anything close to the far sight and imaginative concepts of say Bradbury They deal vaguely with things that could probably be technologically possible within the next decade ''Fewer Things'' and ''Dead Fish'' are nice

    The Stone Thrower MOBI ä The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone kindle, thrower epub, The Stone free, The Stone Thrower MOBII lost interest in this book about halfway through distracted by other books It's not a bad book just a very early one This is Marek's second short story collection and is the first time I've read any of his stuff As with most short story collections it is a mixed bag The stories range in uality from OK to excellent Of those that I read I would only put a few on the 'Excellent' end of the scale Many didn't make much of an impression on me looking at the contents page as I write this I am struggling to recall a few of them Some of the not that great stories were entertaining partly because I could imagine Marek writing them having fun playing around with the craftThis is an early collec

    The Stone Thrower MOBI ä The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone kindle, thrower epub, The Stone free, The Stone Thrower MOBIWell that was very very good I don't think you should be able to read a book of short stories cover to cover Each story should have a sort of impactingness that means you need to roll back take a drink of coffee have a short walk and allow the shape of it to be absorbed and ingested Marek delivers this impactingness in spades from the first story on If there is a theme that runs through these stories it is that of the interaction between adult and child particularly children that are facing some kind of difficulty or otherness This inevitably leads to emotive subjects bu

    The Stone Thrower MOBI ä The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone kindle, thrower epub, The Stone free, The Stone Thrower MOBII really like this writer His first collection Instruction Manual for Swallowing was full of darkly comic stories laced with a skewed reality that really appealed to me The same is true of many of the stories in this collection but there is an added seriousness and even a sense of melancholy that wasn't there before A number of the stories in The Stone Thrower are about parenthood or filial relations specifically a parent's need to protect a child from harm and Marek is very good at depicting just how frightening an experience that can be This collection might not please everyone who liked Instruction Manual for Swallowing but I think its best stories are evidence of a maturer and better writer

    The Stone Thrower MOBI ä The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone kindle, thrower epub, The Stone free, The Stone Thrower MOBIBefore even reading Adam Marek’s short story collection The Stone Thrower­—a book that openly states its themes of parental protection and vulnerability right on the back cover—I began to worry that I would be slogging through a dozen or so stories written by so

    The Stone Thrower MOBI ä The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone kindle, thrower epub, The Stone free, The Stone Thrower MOBIAn entertaining collection although many of the stories lack the overt elements of fantasy and the absurd that characterised Marek's earlier book 'Instruction manual for swallowing' Instead there is often a creeping sense of fear and dread which can be very effective The recurring theme of parents protecting their children is well explored and makes this a coherent collection although it does result in the stories feeling a little samey towards the end As always with short stories there are highs Tamagotchi The Captain and lows The Stone Thrower Santa Carla Day but the overall standard is very high Well worth a read

    The Stone Thrower MOBI ä The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone kindle, thrower epub, The Stone free, The Stone Thrower MOBII am an Adam Marek fan and enjoyed this second collection My favourite story out of this is 'Tamogotchi' where the famous Sky Badger makes his appearance Marek's wife later set up a children's charity named after Sky Badger Some of these stories such as 'The Captain' were so absorbing that I wish he'd turn them into something longer His style is possibly not to everyone's tastes but if you love the uncanny or uirky with a dose of humanity and truth then this collection is for you

    The Stone Thrower MOBI ä The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone kindle, thrower epub, The Stone free, The Stone Thrower MOBIA good collection of dark short storiesMy favourites were 'An Industrial evolution' for it's imagination and sadness about cloned humanoid and employed orangutangs then 'Tamagotchi' for its funny dark inventiveness and then 'Burying Chiyoko Sasaki' for it's slice of well observed grief and cre

    The Stone Thrower MOBI ä The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone kindle, thrower epub, The Stone free, The Stone Thrower MOBIThis is a seriously compelling collection of stories many of which are still sloshing about in my memory weeks after reading them THE STONE THROWER is even better than Adam Marek's first collection and that's saying something

    The Stone Thrower MOBI ä The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone kindle, thrower epub, The Stone free, The Stone Thrower MOBISome of the thirteen short stories in this collection I loved others I weren't too keen on I'm not sure whether they are literary fiction or sci fi or a completely different genre but they definitely show that Adam Marek has one hell of an imagination I'd definitely say give them a go
