Dave Eggers’ ‘How we are hungry’

Dave Eggers is a good writer. Which isn’t to say that everything he’s written has received good reviews; but when it’s good, it can be very good.

How we are hungry is his collection of short stories. I liked some of them. A few are quite amusing. A lot, though, seemed to have this vague air of ennui-filled, spaced out thirty-somethings. Which is fine, I just didn’t care very much, and found myself close to skimming at points.

Worth it if you love Dave Eggers. Probably not a great starting point otherwise.
