I got this because it won a Bram Stoker Award for Superior Collection I wanted to read some decent horror and this is set in the Tenderloin which contains some of my favorite areas in San Francisco In particular I love the theatre district where many theatres rub up against dive bars and strip clubs in an uneasy alliance There are some cool buildings here and Dashiell Hammett wrote The Maltese Falcon The Tenderloin is its place not cleaned up and prettified for the tourists and the yuppies San Francisco needs of that frankly otherwise it just feels like a big clean amusement parkThe stories in this were just okay for me There were too many stories that were or less the same story and I found that irritating I actually preferred the brief mention of various recurring Tenderloin characters to the actual stories It was all too predictable for me Also bothersome were some repeated inaccuracies mainly that Wild Irish Rose is whiskey It's not whiskey it's heavily fortified wine I know this because it was liuor of choice for many of the hardcore alcoholics that freuented the Walgreen's in the Student Ghetto in Albuuerue They drank it every day of the week except for Sundays when alcohol wasn't sold and they bought and drank ListerineThis wasn't terrible it was just too repetitious for me to really enjoy it but it has its moments Not terrible not great just okay

Taste of Tenderloin is comprised of eight uniue stories based on life in the underbelly of San Francisco All of the stories are connected as they take place in the same neighborhood and a recurring character pops up throughout to help show this connection The language that O'Neill writes in is rich and vivid showing he is a strong storyteller but there was something about the stories in this particular collection that didn't grab me All of the stories seem to end in doom and gloom and left me saddened after reading them I guess maybe I just needed a happy ending while reading this book and was disappointed over and over again This is definitely not a good book to be reading on an already gloomy dayContains Violence Adult Language Adult SituationsReview also posted at MonsterLibrariancom
