      Dan Rhodes makes micro-fiction writing look pimps.His lauded collection, Anthropology, collects 101 stories, each approx 101 words (the word count isn’t rigidly adhered to), and over the course of 200 pages, breaks down the bulk of a billion novels about heartbreak, obsessive lovers, hapless male losers, and pouting femme fatales into hilarious, touching and poignant mini-stories.I have been a doubter of micro-fiction for some time, but reading this collection has opened my eyes to the possibi [...]

      I'll read everything Dan Rhodes will ever publish based on the strength of this tiny book. 101 stories about love all 101 words long. Meditations on relationships and the character names keep getting weirder and weirder. Rhodes is just sick about love, deathly ill. He has a wonderfully disturbing sense of humor and a keen awareness of the thin line between love and some other awful, regrettable thing. The characters hurt and I laugh. I laugh and it hurts.

      I randomly picked this book up because a) it sounded interesting, b) I loved the cover and c) was in a ginormous reading slump, had the attention span of a butterfly and needed something that was either short stories or had really short chapters. Good that I picked it up, though, because the style of Dan Rhodes is absolutely amazing and did get me out of the reading slump I was in.Anthropology consists of 101 wicked short stories about love, sex, relationships and break-ups that are very funny a [...]

      If brevity is, as Polonius says in Hamlet, indeed the soul of wit, then Dan Rhodes, with his turn of the millennium collection of short short stories, is a writer possessed of extraordinarily sharp perception. His stories in this collection, titled Anthropology and a Hundred Other Stories, represent the best that short comic and literary fiction can offer. Anthropology is a slim anthology of a hundred and one stories, each a hundred and one words strong and each narrated by an unnamed man romant [...]

      Se ia o sticluţă cu esenţa dragostei. Se ia un carneţel, mic cât să vă încapă în buzunarul de la piept. Se ia o pipetă şi se aşterne câte o picătură de esenţă pe fiecare din cele 101 de pagini ale carneţelului. Rezultatul? 101 povestiri care mustesc de dragoste, fie ea obsesivă, morbidă, amuzantă sau romantică. A se consuma în doze mici, pentru o deplină savurare (zise dânsa, care le-a înghiţit pe nemestecate într-o singură oră :D).

      Dopo anni passati a criticare questo libro, la sua rilettura è andata molto meglio. Il motivo di tanto disprezzo era dovuto al fatto che ero piccola in confronto ad adesso – avrò avuto 11 anni – e che lo trovavo un po' un libro senza senso. Ne sono quindi rimasta piacevolmente colpita e posso affermare che questo libro è un 3.5 stelline. Le storie sono di per sé carine e neanche troppo banali, è invece la scrittura che mi è sembrata un po' normale, diciamo. Non so bene come spiegarlo, [...]

      This is an odd yet strangely familiar collection of short stories that cover every aspect of romance from the intense highs to the all consuming lows. While each story is intense in the emotions that they portray and raise in the reader, I found the writing a little odd (can't quite put my finger on what or why), which kind of left me feeling a little meh by the end. I think if each was a little longer, each story was only a page long, it might've made more sense and engaged me more but I couldn [...]

      I'll be honest, I picked up this book in the library based on the cover alone. This is a collection of 101 pieces of flash fiction all consisting of 101 words revolving around the theme of relationships.Overall I'm not really sure what to make of it. On the one hand, it reminded me of the strange imagery and blunt writing style that Tim Burton uses in his poetry, but on the other, I'm not entirely sure what the author was trying to say. Some of the pieces had interested themes and ideas but on t [...]

      I'd actually give its rating as a 3.5 (I wish we could give half-star ratings on ). I read this book because I was interested in the premise ; 101 short stories, all 101 words each. Each story was straight to the point,and witty at times. Some stories were just tragic.It was a very quick read.

    • Ben says:

      I'm wondering if there's a Dan Rhodes book I won't five star now. Funny for both its accuracy and its ridiculousness, these stories are succinct, precise, touching and lethal. I was going to list some of my favourites but there's too many. I'm going to force this book on a lot of people.

    • Patrick says:

      I picked this up from the library because I happened to notice the glowing reviews from the Grauniad, the Times and, um, Heat Magazine on the cover. Trouble is, I think it just shows up the limits of what can be done with very short stories. A few of them are quite funny, in a more or less dark way. I quite liked History:"Nightjar told me all about her ex-boyfriends. She went through her shoebox full of photographs When, at last, she had finished, she asked me about my romantic history. I told h [...]

      I wanted to hate it but I didn't really. There were only a couple of pieces that were so quirky that they nudged my gag reflex. The majority of the rest were okay and there were several gems. It was these gems nestled amongst the rest of the okay pieces that were it's saving grace. Gems such asL"They kidnapped my girlfriend and asked for an awful lot of money before they would even think of giving her back. I was grateful for the peace and quiet, so I wasn't in too much of a hurry to settle up. [...]

    • David Gallagher says:

      It's really difficult to write a full story in 100 words, but Rhodes has accomplished that. The girls' names in each story are simply hilarious to begin with. And reading My girlfriend left me at the beginning of almost every story is another. Although infused with comedic tragedy and quirkiness that makes you shake your head, there are themes in these love stories that apply to real life as well: cheating, having your loved ones crashing your dreams, getting over someone, dealing with their exe [...]

      Dan Rhodes scrie o carte bizară: 101 povestiri, fiecare având doar o pagină, format mic, așezate în volum în ordinea alfabetică a titlurilor. Ba, mai mult, în orginalul englezesc, fiecare povestire are fix 100 de cuvinte.Bizară și pentru modul de tratare, de multe ori amuzant, alteori destul de morbid, de multe ori și tragic, al relației unui bărbat cu femeile care au trecut prin viața lui. Fiecare povestire înseamnă ceva și are un mesaj distinct și ar fi de preferat ca să exi [...]

      so I guess this is book 33 of the year which is about on target. this is a book that I think can really be judged by the cover. there are women of three colors on the cover. all the red women are the same women, all the pink women are the same women. but I think the green women are different women. the book is like this too not unlike AM/PM where there are repeat characters in the stories this book has repeat characters although in this book they have different names each time. I suppose except [...]

    • Eduard says:

      I have never heard of Anthropology before browsing for books on the internet. I was intrigued by the premise: 101 love stories composed of exactly 101 words each. So, I bought it.Rhodes' work, which resembles microfiction, is odd, heart-breaking, with bits of witty humour and, at times, even dirty. With names like Skylark and Hummingbird, "his girlfriends" are something different. They literally die laughing,they get pregnant in two years time and sometimes they resemble Mount Fuji.Although some [...]

      Tarinakokoelma kuin macaron-lajitelma: maistettuaan kymmeniä on edelleen pakko ottaa vielä muutama pieni herkkupala, jos niissä olisi jotain eroa. No ei ole, kaikki maistuvat samalta, mutta kohta tarjotin on tyhjä. Kitalaessa kihelmöi mantelin karvas kitkeryys ja hampaissa tuntuu tahmainen sokeri. Ällöttää vähän, vähää enemmän. Ja aina maistellessa miettii, että tällaisia voisi tehdä itsekin, mutta ne epäonnistuisivat kuitenkin. Macaronit sopivat esimerkiksi cocktailkutsuille, [...]

    • Andrew Mcq says:

      This is a clever, but slight, collection of short musings on the nature of love and infatuation. The majority are concerned with 'over-loving' the object of your affections. Many of the funniest relate to being the object of over-attentive affections. It's a clever device, I can imagine these as a regular feature in a satirical magazine. They are a great insight into the savage humour of Rhodes, which comes out in his fiction, and are not below-par in writing terms. However, he has given himself [...]

    • Robert Windsor says:

      Ever since I picked up this book and sniggered uncomfortably, I have never looked back. Like an itchy rash I've picked through all of Dan Rhodes' fabulous books like they're a guilty pleasure. When I recommend him to others they look at me like I'm a freak. Until they read my copy of timoleon vieta come home, then they look at me like a twisted serial killer. At least the book comes home, albeit damaged!

    • Nalnac says:

      A collection of very-very-short, surreal, funny, stories. Tiny snippets of/about love.And the crazy thing is, that we have all been there somehow.This book will have the honour to sit next to A Lover's Discourse: Fragments in my bookshelf .Simply perfect.

    • Matt says:

      Witty, tragic, profound, this collection of 100 hundred-word vignettes describes so much of how love affects us. The narrator is usually blithely deluded about a lover's incompatibility or trying to ignore his own feelings. It's on par with Judith Viorst's wry poetry and Chuck Palahniuk's emotionally jagged minimalism. Loved it.

    • rose says:

      Quick, but definitely interesting. Makes for a light read, but is able to explain the way we relate in love and why we do the silly things we do through a mere collection of fluffy stories. Not that they are really that fluffy though, some are rather twisted, sad and heart wrenching wheras others are hilarious. A tale of love from the male perspective. Definitely a good read.

    • Ghadah; says:

      This is a small book of short stories. very short. a story a page. But they were brilliant. Rhodes tells stories about couples and relationships, and some of them are quite wicked. The sense of humor is really dark. Pieces is absolutely my favorite. It was shocking and it made me giggle.

    • Anna Schermak says:

      101 micro histórias de amor. Algumas felizes, outras tristes. Algumas engraçadas, mas todas com um toque perspicaz sobre a vida a dois. Um livro interessante. Nada totalmente incrível, mas uma boa leitura

    • Lauren says:

      This is a small book that packs a lot of punch. With shameless writing, creating wickedly hilarious gems such as 'Paint', 'Real', 'Toys' and 'Stuff', this is one book I can see myself dipping into again and again.

    • Taylor says:

      One of my favorite books of all time and an incredible gift that was given to me.

    • Blogbaas Van 'tVliegend Eiland says:

      8/10Of course, a better way to rate an author is to buy all his books, which I just did.

    • tara says:

      I think I'm in love! Can't wait to read another of his books

    • Aaron Ambrose says:

      Brilliantly conceived, ingeniously composed, alternating between screwball and heartbreak, and full of goofy soul. This is excellent literary popcorn. I will find more of his work and eat it up greedily.
