From Edge magazine (UK)
The result is a collection heady with emotion and atmosphere. Yet despite her undoubted craft [...], there's also an impression of slightness in the style. With every surreal sketch of a clown-killing sniper choosing victims like sweets from a variety box, or a bride late for her ceremony after two years of Bride School, it becomes harder to see how the atmosphere could be sustained for a full-length book.Really, you can only shake your head sometimes, can't you? And vow to write ten obvious novels-in-progress next time, in order to please everybody.
So, like the chocolate bar of certain starry constellation, Black Juice is tasty, but it won't satisfy your appetite for something more substantial.
(Thanks, Angela, for sending me this review.)
