I loved this. It is a book of short stories and some verse. This book entertains and at the same time makes you think. My favourite stories are Maud and the Runner, Calorie Deficit and Green Man Correctness. I liked They Fight Crime and felt that it would make a great beginning for a longer story.
Something that really made me think was the story about stay at home Mums. I think Claire is correct about how some people think that they have all the time in the world to do everything perfectly when actually it is a demanding “job” with no set hours etc!
Claire Buss is a great writer who you absolutely cannot stereotype. I love her books and am impatiently waiting for her upcoming Gaia Project after reading The Gaia Effect.
