    One thought on “Straw House

    1. Chris

      I'm not sure if I really like the plot but the world building was awesome. This is a strange cross of an old time Western with Babes in Toyland and Science Fiction. The great thing is that it works. In a novella, Mr. Nayeri has been able to conveay a wonderful world with great characters. I like his use of myth too.Well done.(Got as a Kindle freebie)

      I loved Pup!But the random jumps in POV made it a little hard to follow. I wish Nayeri had written it just from Sunny's point of view. Or even from Sobrino's. Basically, this one idea could be written a dozen different ways. And I think I like that.

    3. Nikki Fordey

      This novella was dark in a way that I wasn't expecting. I was constantly questioning my assumptions as to what was meant to be a symbol for something greater versus what was meant to just be. Whenever the main characters are inanimate objects somehow brought to life, we assume that their actions and thoughts somehow comment on what it means to be human. We expect that this will reveal a truth of what humanity really is in a way that couldn't be accomplished with completely human characters. So w [...]

      Belated posting of an advance copy review Daniel Nayeri has got the funny. Shall I sound a little bit inflated when I tell you, gentle reader, that I have an advanced copy of what I am not fearful of presumptively calling Nayeri's priceless collection of novellas. I have one of the four stories to be precise,"Doom With A View", which is a concocted tale of genius, ignited, but only just, by the timelessness of Sleeping Beauty, and it would seem, Romeo and Juliet. Beyond that shadow of a parallel [...]

      I liked this book, but I would have enjoyed the story more had things been explained. The reader is expected to accept things at face value- Toys are sentient beings and run a farm that yields more living toys as its crop. It is never explained why these toys are planted, grown and harvested or whether the whole world is populated with items that would otherwise by inanimate. I really think that the story would have benefited with a bit more context.

    6. Janet Hutchinson

      I think this is probably a brilliant book - but I really struggled with it. And finally put it down and decided that I have too many books to read to worry about finishing this one. Maybe short stories are not my thing - or maybe I just could not get pulled into this.

    7. Jan

      I think I liked it. As the first in a series of four novellas, it certainly was engaging and left me wanting to read the others in the series. The writing style had its moments of fun, and was solid throughout. All in all, a decent little short-story read.

    8. Ruthie Jones

      This story is completely weird, but it's also very intriguing. I do believe it deserves a second reading because there's a lot going on here. What does it mean to be alive?

    9. Melody Smith

      Odd book. Creative, I guess. I kind of feel like someone has been smoking something when writing this. It is a good thing it was short or I would have thrown in the towel.

    10. Leah Hortin

      There are no words for how terrible this book was. Maybe I just didn't "get" it or something but I could barely make it through. And it's pretty short.
