Telling the stories, and how they differ, is a main point in this book. Retelling the same passage in either a different way, or a different perspective.
I was drawn to this book’s themes. Immigration, human rights, and racism sadly seem all to be forefront and center in our collective reality.
This title presents Harley and The Joker in their teenage incarnation. A strange choice for criminal characters in an abusive relationship in a YA focused book.
The novel is strongest in its depiction of the day-to-day living with a person suffering from Alzheimer’s. An undignified way to slowly die for those affected.
The novel does jump around, and when that happens the reader has to pay attention. Even if you do , what’s real and what’s not is always up for questioning.
This book has a lot going for it, police drama, corporate intrigue, murder, action, a new kind of tortured super-hero, and the effects on a small community.
Much like other anthologies I read, in Collectibles some are fascinating, some less so. However, this is a solid collection featuring talented authors.
