    This is my favorite period of TC Boyle and the short story is is special talent Raucous, excessive prose with superb pacing The drama is that you just cannot predict where the story will go, and Boyle is not afraid to take any path More later.

    I always struggle writing reviews for short story collections because I could write separate reviews for each one of the 15 stories included in Boyle s Without a Hero This is the second set of short stories I ve read by T.C Boyle, the first being Tooth and Claw Of the two, I definitely preferred this one Boyle has a way of capturing the absurdity of human life and through absurd situations show emotions and thoughts that are universal human emotions Boyle creates stories that demonstrate ho I always struggle writing reviews for short story collections because I could write separate reviews for each one of the 15 stories included in Boyle s Without a Hero This is the second set of short stories I ve read by T.C Boyle, the first being Tooth and Claw Of the two, I definitely preferred this one Boyle has a way of capturing the absurdity of human life and through absurd situations show emotions and thoughts that are universal human emotions Boyle creates stories that demonstrate how strange and weird life can be I love the way Boyle describes the worlds he creates a big blocky old lady with a face like the bottom of a hiking boot Most of these stories made me feel uncomfortable or tense For example, the eery experience of being stalked by a weirdo while...

    T.C Boyle has written several collections of stories, and to be honest, I like them all Immensely They all hover between four and five stars for me, so rather than give them all just four stars, I ve chosen to give five to this one Possibly only because I ve read itrecently than some of the others But really, I like his writing very much Smart, funny, writes well the guy totally rocks In all of his stuff that I ve read, the only obvious misstep was The Road to Wellville , whose s T.C Boyle has written sev...

    As usual, T.C Boyle is phenomenal No one else could write a story about football and make me care this much This story is perfect The stunners in this collection 56 0, The Fog Man, Sitting on Top of the World, Big Game, Back in the Eocene, Carnal Knowledge Second tier of greatness that I can t not mention Filthy with Things, Top of the Food Chain, Without A Hero, Little America...

    I am not much of a fan of short stories, but this collection was better than most Each story was individually quirky and an interesting read Well written, but nothing sensational A little funny in places and certainly entertaining in small doses Best read a few at a time.

    I don t read many short story collections any , and this was an example of why they just don t have enough substance There are a few good ideas here, and some of the stories were really compelling Many others are entirely forgettable.

    Fifteen varied stories which smack the funny bone hard, until it splinters and shatters inevitably like the aspirations of many of the characters that TCB brings to life so memorably My own top 5 are in...

    This is the first thing I ve read by T.C Boyle That probably wasn t a good choice, because as I can see now, it s nowhere close to being one of his most successful books.In my rating system, two stars means below average compared to everything else I ve read not all books I m sure it s better than a LOT of books that I ve just avoided But two stars also means that it probably won t be read by me again Not in its entirety, anyway.Short story collections are tricky to rate, too, for obvious This is the first thing I ve read by T.C Boyle That probably wasn t a good choice, because as I can see now, it s nowhere close to being one of his most successful books.In my rating system, two stars means below average compared to everything else I ve read not all books I m sure it s better than a LOT of books that I ve just avoided But two stars also means that it probably won t be read by me again Not in its entirety, anyway.Short story collections are tricky to rate, too, for obvious reasons It feels wrong to give Without A Hero a low rating because there some stories I really liked There were two stories in Without A Hero that I would rate 4 5 Filthy With Things and Sitting On Top of the World I would give Without A Hero a 5 5, and it would have been the best short story I ve read in a long time, if I hadn t been reading I Sailed With Magellan at the same time I read this.Other than those three, Without A Hero is...

    Some very good stories in here This is probably my favorite Boyle collection for whatever reason, the lightheartedness of his work was just what I needed Highlights include Big Game, Beat a hilarious Kerouac Ginsburg parody , The Fog Man, and the title story.
