I liked it and would recommend it. You can read it for free on the internet, besides it's an easy and quick read.
The stories have sadness and loneliness in them but are at the same time light and kind of funny. Also there is a kind of strange, dissociative or surreal style that you might enjoy. I thought it was done in good way. To give you an impression of the style I will list a few quotes of this book:
He understood that she was saying something that meant something and so was a message but it sounded strange and more like a sound than a message and he felt a little confused.
The Walking Wall
I kind of wanted to help him up and then climb the wall myself, but we were not on good terms, so instead I watched and called him names.
I wanted him to say, “People are looking for you because they love you.” I wanted him to say the names of those people and to describe those people and for that to never end.
“You were raised by dolphins, but now I can’t even move freely through this world, where colors and shapes and facial expressions are so important—crucial, really.”
He wished his mom had stayed in Taiwan. Raised him here, native. He wished his mom had died early, leaving him to do things for himself. Neil wished for 10 percent increases in kindness, tolerance, social skills, confidence, and attractiveness and then felt cheated in life by 10 percent.
Canadian Sandy! You Will Never Read This Story! Good Bye!
I looked at the walls and I didn’t know anything anymore! Sandy was asleep on the carpet! He looked like napkins! I touched him! Then I ran home!
My idea is for the narrator to go insane on page 100. On page 99 the narrator will be sane. On page 101 he will be severely deranged. I take a pen from my pocket. I write this on my arm.
