Book Review: Homesick for Another World by Ottessa Moshfegh

As always, short story collections are hard to review as they always have hits and misses. The easiest thing to review is the language and story structure. It was superb here. Ottessa Moshfegh knows how to write vivid language to make you see and be in the situation. But I didn’t want to be there. The stories weren’t for me. There was only one that had an exciting start concept-wise, but then it was like the other stories about self-obsessed humans who were weird and confused in creepy or icky situations. The icky factor didn’t work for me. It was just humans being humans.

Here I am, wondering how to summarize the collection. I should warn others that the cover and the book title can be misleading—no unique reflection on humans from an outward perspective. Just mundane in weird, and not that weird either. It is just slightly tilted like a bad romance where one is a self-serving nut, and the other is there because there is no other place to go, so they keep going, making the universe a much worse place to be.

Thank you for reading! Have a nice day ❤
