This book is a collection of short stories, some more interrelated than others. As long as you don't go into the book expecting them all to be woven together neatly it's a very enjoyable and quick read.
There were some problems on the editing front (a mis-placed word or punctuation mark here and there), but it did not detract from the experience of reading.
The author has a strong voice, a clear point of view, and a lovely feeling of whimsy in his style. I could have gone on to read many more short stories had they been included. I felt each story had a clear trajectory, and each was pleasant to read.
The only element I probably wouldn't read again was the poem he included. It wasn't bad, but I didn't find it up to the level of the rest of the work included.
