      I enjoyed the way these stories were woven together; the my became a magic tapestry of quirky characters and unexpected adventures. Marshall has a knack with dialogue and character/story twists that leave you wanting more. As a collection of short fiction, it is a collection I encourage every reader who enjoys fun, real characters to pick it up. It's a quick, and addictive read.

      It's hard to say how I feel about "Let's Not Let a Little Thing Like the End of the World Come Between Us" by James Marshall. The book topics are deeply disturbing. The blurb on the back of the book talks about "fictional restlessness" but that doesn't begin to describe the grittiness the book portrays. The characters Marshall creates are deeply flawed. They don't try to hide it. They struggle and fight and try to survive. And most of them do. There are very few reviews on this book so it's hard [...]

      This is an alright collection, but too often reads like Palahniuk-lite.
