Reading - The Silence Room

This is a collection of short stories by Sean O'Brien who is apparently a poet from Newcastle, in that he lives there having obviously recognised the Rio of the North for its potential. The Silence Room is a room in the library and almost all the stories have some resonance, or even a scene in or around the library or writing. I think there was only one I didn't like but several that were really rather good and I'd recommend this to anyone who like slightly spooky but not necessarily resolved stories. And as you'd expect from a poet, the use of language is generally spot on, unlike this review which is pretty light.
