The Brief And Frightening Reign Of Phil: (Includes The 'In Persuasion Nation' Collection) - George Saunders The first (and title) story in this collection was fascinating. Completely unique and with a real point, well made. It's about opression, balance of power, xenophobia and everything that goes with it. READ the first story! Unfortunately it all goes a bit to pot after that. Some intersting points are made and some axes well and truly ground. Alas the hugely inconsistent range of stories that follows 'The Brief and Frightening Reign of Phil' made me give this 2 stars. If you just read the title tale, consider it 4 stars!
