Reviews - What do customers think about Report to the Men's Club and Other Stories?

Memorable, Provocative and Entertaining  Nov 15, 2004
This is the first book that I read from Carol Emschwiller. I read a short story of hers from another annual collection and thereafter desired to read more of her stories. Each of the 19 stories included in "Report to the Men's Club" are imaginative and original. For example, in "Mrs. Jones", one of two rivaling spinsters realizes that a strange creature has been visiting them at night. It is her bizarre reaction and plan that sets this story apart. Though she finds that the creature cannot speak, she entraps the manlike bat and refashions him as her husband. The ending is hysterical. In both "Foster Mother" and "Creature" the author finds the humanity in creatures that are clearly far from human. The story "Grandma" raised a lot of issues about what to do with superheros and superheroines when they have passed their prime. I really wish that this story was a little longer.
If you like fantastic stories that make you think, have witty humor, contain thought-provoking surprises, and are satirical in nature, you will like this book.
original, but...  Jul 29, 2004
well, this book gets two stars for trying to be original, but i found it to be a little bit too elementry. the writing falls flat in many places, making short stories boring, which is hard to do. i only found one of the short stories to be of any interest, and all the other ones seemed to be the same story again and again, particularly in the middle. i advise reading some ray bradbury short stories if you're interested in alienish things, instead of this book.
