Machine of Death: A Collection of Stories about People Who Know How They Will Die by Ryan North
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I am not sure what I was expecting, when I pulled this book off the shelf at my local Chapters bookstore. This collection is far more amusing than I should admit.
The idea of a machine that can predict the way a person would die is very, very creepy. It could read CANCER or JULIA or OLD AGE. However, it's never quite that simple - each of these could mean very different things based on different circumstances. Due to this, the stories were insightful, though-provoking, witty and terrible in the best way possible.
There is something special, here.
