Summary

In his previous collection, Not Quite so Stories, David S. Atkinson twisted reality with small absurdities. Roses Are Red, Violets Are Stealing Loose Change from My Pockets While I Sleep leaves sanity completely behind, pondering modern life through surreal humorous flash fiction involving Margaret Thatcher, jam appearing in boxers overnight, Gene Roddenberry, and more.

Reminds me of Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas

This roller coaster writing style ended up being quite addicting. I found each story oddly fascinating. It didn't take long to get hooked! I hope David S. Atkinson writes more of these!

Nonstop auditory chaos and I loved every moment!

The book is oddly connected with its weird quirky stories. I didn't really know what I was getting into but the writing style reminds me of Hunter S. Thompson which was refreshing! I will come back and listen to this again.

I couldn't get into it. I tried.

the narrator is great. I just couldn't get into it. it's supposed to funny. it's not relevant to me so I couldn't find it entertaining.
