Lurid covers like this one can have their uses--- usually in persuading book-hating third year boys that not everything between two covers is unremittingly tedious. However, this cover --- and the book title --- are unashamedly misleading as the contents suit perfectly the book's original title, A Taste for Quiet. The 12 stories are an uneasy mixture of fairy tale, myth and mystery and none convinced me. It is difficult to recommend this for a specific age group as it is such an unwieldy collection --- further, it exhibits little real literary merit.
