Review : Dangerous Women – ” Neighbors”

dangerous womenAh, Robin Hobb by another name. I had such high hopes for this one, and I wouldn’t say I was disappointed.  Robin Hobb and Meghan Lindholm are two separate authors, and this was my first introduction to the Lindholm persona.

As I expected from a Hobb story, deeper issues are explored through the narrative. In this case, we’re dealing with Alzheimer. Literally, we are dealing with a town that seems to be plagued by Alzheimer. Neighbors are disappearing, and Linda seems to be the only one who’s noticing it. She starts losing time, and her children believe she needs to be placed in a home. Most things, like the true nature of what’s happening to the people when they walk over to the fog world are never adequately explained, but this is still one of the better stories. Definitely in the top 5, but not good enough to make up for the rest of the anthology to warrant the purchase price.
