The writing was magical, engaging, and ingenious. One moment the characters are dark, chilling, and unnerving; the next you are laughing out loud. The twists and turns in the plots and how each one delivered a powerful sting at the end. I was left wondering about the characters and their predicaments long after the final page was turned. A superb collection of stories.

Name a genre, and it is covered in this collection. Each story dovetails into your imagination with a tiny string of continuity. This is not a collection where you want to skip any one story as they are all needed as you get to the end. Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of books to escape into and this one kept my mind not only engaged but entertained.

There is a clear psychological and thought-provoking theme throughout every story, for the situations which the author creates mirror everyday dilemmas in our own lives, although they take a much darker twist in this fictional world. Overall, I would certainly recommend Bits & Bites to anthology fans who like multi-layered and multi-genre reading experiences.
