It s no secret I m a fan of short story collections There is something about getting through a story in its entirety during a reading session that feels wholly satisfying You can knock a short out on a bus or subway ride read one over a lunch break get one in before bedtime You can pick up and put down a book a short stories for longer periods of time with no real guilt and start relatively fresh each time you crack it back open The downside is that you invariably enjoy some stories than others which becomes a real bitch during review time because you end up pitting the little tales against one another in an effort to appraise it overall By comparison the ratings will rise and fall in a balancing act and I rarely emerge thinking every one of them was stellar because of this I m pleased to report Rust and Bone comes pretty damn close I d like to think of it as an assortment of small situational suirms that cover a wide spectrum and has the ability to get under every inch of your skin The book is mostly tales of tough folks in trouble a sea world trainer being mauled by a killer whale a couple involved in the brutal underground world of dog fighting an alcoholic father inadvertently ruining his kid s prospects in life and the stresses of being a sex addict among others There are ugly violent and sadistic sides to life commonly happening behind closed doors trespasses and indulgences committed by everyday people This collection holds your head up to the keyhole for a peekDavidson s writing is raw and visceral giving you every bit of the grit and discomfort he intends It isn t necessarily the gore that gets you although there is some of that rather it s the predicaments the characters find themselves in two pitiful amputees starved of affection trying to feel each other out for instance I found the tone and originality than satisfying The writing is razor sharp making for a lean book There are echoes of author Thom Jones in the pages an influence that results in a very masculine and unflinching read Rust Bone has a uick pace and a keen eye for everyday horror that most might be unaware of There were stories I enjoyed than others ranging from great to good and occasionally I felt that shock value was employed simply for the sake of it but other than that there were few ualms to be had If you enjoy short stories this is a book I highly recommend This book was one of my 10 Books That Stuck With Me piece Check out my other selections

    When I was in high school 1990 1994 I read everything through the lens of a drama student The drama nerds at our school in the time that I was there were all very serious about the craft We competed at tournaments and competitions I would have given anything to have found a short story collection like this one i

    'Rust and Bone' had two really great things going for it different and disturbing Not too different nor too disturbing but a healthy dollop of both that made it a book to remember and recommend These are not your typical short stories They are violent gritty bleak; tales about broken people or individuals reachin

    What about a 35? I love this dude and I'm going to be following his career but you can tell he's still a young writer and learning how to put a collection together how to reel it in I'm sueamish so some of these stories were tough to stomach but he's definitely talented writer who's not afraid to grit it up he just needs to find that balance between being violenttransgressivewhatever for the heck of it and using it to tell the point betwee

    I was hesitant to rate this book somewhere between 2 3 stars but ended up with 2 stars because the last short story was mentally torturous which evoked an instant regret in buying this book As a fan of the film I had a rather high expectation in the book but in the actuality only a few elements were taken into the film adaptation I noticed that most of the taken elements are from Rust And Bone and Rocket Ride where the
