Some of the stories in this novel are extremely worth reading. Though some stories I could have lived without (the first one, and the random poem) most of them were extraordinary. Absolutely found the second story phenomenal (ew, zombies). Everything from world-wide sickness, to drout, famine, pestilence, warfare, alternate realities. Some stories were so well written, I was completely upset that there wasn't an entire novel written about the world and it's characters.

What made this book least enjoyable to read was reading the point of view of a linguistically challenged character. There were at least 2.

This book of short stories is about what life might be like after a world wide disaster, as well as stories about what the planet earth might be like in a parallel universe (dystopia). There are some stories worth reading. Over all, though, IMO they are not worth the time it takes to read them - hence the low rating.
