    Righteous author dude is one of the few writers I've become friendly with in Philly. Two things I know about him informed my reading of his first collection of stories: He drinks faster than I do and he smokes before he swims. He also taught me a new word in the first story: "tupacalypse." The inclusion of tender postcards sent to his wife nicely complicates the rougher gist of the stories, which often seemed sort of language-y to me (I mean: I was aware of the author's attention to the language [...]

    Once I lived next door to a woman I named The Repeater. The Repeater did what you would expect, i.e. she repeated the same sentence again and again to the unlistening ears of her cohabitants. Usually the things she repeated were banal, i.e. not worth repeating. Occasionally, however, the repetition transformed the banal into the profound, demonstrating that one can draw extraordinary blood from an ordinary stone. In these short stories TeBordo is also fond of repeating himself, but his repetitio [...]

    This book is an interesting mix of reflective insight about the human condition and refreshingly imaginative total bizarreness. Though it can get a tad confusing at times, the writing is nicely free and fluid. I especially like the odd little postcards that separate and bookend the stories, completely strange little notes from a man on vacation to his wife who is on vacation with him and will receive the postcards upon their return home.

    Dude, this shit is weak. Like you're still mentioning MySpace when you're published in 2010. And it's good your publisher told us the macabre twists already cos the stories are way too boring to actually read to the end of. Guess this must be how I got a cheap copy off that was previously owned by Virginia Beach Public Library but is already stamped DISCARD.

    I am getting concerned about the increasing weirdness of Adam Levin–recommended books

    As a writer, I'm interested in experimentation and forging new ideas in literature. There are a few things I like to do in my stories specifically to deal with current trends or problems. TeBordo has already done them for me and better.1. Imprecision of languageLanguage seems to be saturated with a more and more imprecise lexicon, a sort of dumbing down where words become devalued and meaningless. But it is possible through word choice and context to actually use imprecision as a means of expans [...]

    This is a book to just give yourself over to. It has it's own rules and views, so no use trying to meet it halfway, you just need to follow along. Truly dark horrifying and unsettling ("The Champion of Forgetting" -- a delusional first person account of a young girl's abduction and induction into the world of kidney thieves), other times it's darkly absurd, in the vein of Ionesco or Beckett (Took and Lost, Oh, Little So-and-So -- a man gives a hitchhiking little girl a ride to a cemetery at her [...]

    I have one word for this collection of short stories - incomprehensible. There are several other words I could have chosen but this seems to encapsulate them all. I don't dislike a lot of books I read, and the Library Journal review really made it sound intriguing. Instead the stories are so impressionistic, you're not sure what is going on. You're not sure if you're reading sci-fi/fantasy or realism. And you end up really not caring - you just want it to be over.Thankfully, it was a short book [...]

    I'd say 6 of the 9 stories were really pretty awesome. The other 3 weren't bad by any means, but weren't necessarily for me, which is to say my aesthetic is clearly different from Christian's at times, but the language and the inventiveness and the kind of manic energy that permeates this whole collection made it a joy to roll through in just a few hours, and in some ways it stands as a testament to the continuing relevance of short stories.

    I've been reading a lot of short story collections lately -- generally of the unsettling variety, to say the least -- and I don't feel like this one keeps pace. It pushes boundaries, to be sure. The prose is riveting. But in a big-picture sense, I'm not sure I was left with much in the end. The postcard interludes may have been my favorite part.

    Things that are cool: the first and last story, both of which use second person to staggering results; the innovative storytelling; the ferocious energy of the stories--you can feel it. Things that are butt:often I got less from the actual story/character part of the story than the framework/language.

    Charles Cohen
    Truly awful possibilities, these are. Every one of these stories is a challenging read, if only because people act and are acted upon awfully. It was hard to find the deeper message, though - even though I read this because of the George Saunders blurb, it had none of his biting satire, just his misery. I liked the book a lot, it just made me feel icky and sent me to look for a hug.

    Kelsey Edwards
    I really liked the writing style. Especially when he used the second person and when he had full paragraphs of "what if" questions. However I couldn't understand most of the stories and would get confused/bored halfway through each one. It started off strong but I was ultimately left unsatisfied.

    Sara
    I think that these stories were all pretty good but some of them were too cerebral for me. Too performative. I enjoyed the graphic sickness of them though. I prefer the parts grounded in muck and violence. The opening story mentions Brooklyn, Iowa. This sold me from the get.

    Grainne Rhuad
    Really this book was just okay. A loosly tied series of shorts torn from the headlines so to speak. In actuallity, it was torn from the buried pages of the news, but news still the same. Fiction written about the possibly why's or what were they thinkings. Mildly entertaining.

    Matt
    The stories in this collection that I enjoyed, I enjoyed very much. It might not be for everyone but it's a weird jaunt through lunacy and I feel like there are plenty of people who can get behind that, so read it if you feel you might be one of them. Chances are you are.

    Jaclyn
    I love Adam Levin. I HATE this book. I feel betrayed that such a brilliant author would recommend a pointless mess like this. There is no meaning or feeling in it (except for some generalized alienation). Do not trust the good reviews on here, clearly they're by friends of the author.

    Amishrage
    this book was disgusting. i mean, it was like.rre and disturbing, but every single one of the short stories in it came out with some kind of moral. so i didn't feel too dirty for reading it.

    Maureen
    Lackadaisical, sprawling writing that can't decide what it wants to say, too many typos, smarmy wordplay, and an unappealing flow made this book really, really disappointing.

    John
    Gosh I really loved this book.

    Mark Cugini
    Christian TeBordo uses word repetition and a layered sentence structure brilliantly in The Awful Possibilities. Never do you feel grounded in place or character, yet never do you complain.

    J. Bradley
    Couldn't finish it. Don't want to return to it.

    Sycobabel
    It's cleverness wore on me, but there are some gems.

    Patrick Wensink
    Tight tales of high weirdness. I liked these better than his last novel, We Go Liquid.

    Zachary
    There is no possibility that you will think this book is awful.

    Alison
    Christian is my buddy from Philadelphia, so I have an obvious bias, but I really think the short story medium is working for him! Like Gertrude Stein and Don DeLillo had a perverse lovechild.
