    2. This book read itself, really. The main story "The Pink Manatee" takes more than half of the collection and once I started it, I didn't close the book until I reached the last page. The stories of Amanda Gowin were hit and miss for me. Some of them I liked a lot like "Fever" and "Gilded Bones", but I enjoyed RADIUM GIRLS for one particular reason: these are really feminine genre stories. Gowin's characters are thoroughly feminine, they're not girls masquerading as boys, doing boyish stuff and I [...]


    3. Radium Girls by Amanda Gowin is a masterful collection of stories, a play, drawings and never-random tidbits. Her work exists in the rarified air found only at high altitudes. With her wit and piercing intelligence, Gowin unfolds a series of portraits of exquisitely flawed and yet powerful women; each story shines with humor, heartbreaking pathos, artfully constructed dialogue, and wild beauty. Her fantastical worlds are filled with monsters, hard science, addicts, twins, trailer parks, magic, v [...]


    4. Radium Girls is the debut collection of shorts from Amanda Gowin. That needed saying first off, because as soon as you begin this book, you slowly forget it’s a collection of stories, and it becomes more a journey through amazingly crafted lives that are connected by a profound need to be coupled. And I don’t mean “coupled” in a romantic way either, but more in a need to be connected to another person - emotionally, spiritually, sexually, or hopelessly. This not Mills and Boon. There is [...]


    5. Grandmothers with new metal hands, the mental symmetry of twins and time, the complications of zombies, navigating a day pass, sex and boredom at the end of the world. There is a pervasive authenticity in the characters laced throughout Amanda Gowin’s debut collection, RADIUM GIRLS. They spark to life in their own myths, create the fictions necessary to experience their world. They accept damage, or at least choose to find the good and stumble through it, find their way despite all the crazy a [...]


    6. This is my favorite thing I’ve read all year. Together, these stories really showcase Gowin’s exquisite gifts, such as seeing everyday objects and experiences through new or naïve eyes. Her characters fetishize them, whether they’re hands or feet or mirrors or clocks or dolls, Frankensteining these “monsters” together like she mentions in her introduction. Perhaps that’s why the film May kept triggering for me while reading (but scored with Tori Amos songs). Twins populate several o [...]


    7. (click the image below to watch the video review) This makes two videos in a row in which I wear a Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds shirt and drink Sexy Betty Imperial Stout. No, I’m not a slob drunk; I simply recorded two videos in a row.Amanda Gowin’s Radium Girls is all sorts of interesting. It’s weird, it’s heartfelt, it’s wavering, it’s beautiful, it’s poetic, and it’s a bunch of other things I can’t think of right now because I’m tired.You should buy this book!


    8. It's a gilded cage we live in. Best to never forget we're broken birds.They say a great book never gives up all its secrets at once, and that's definitely the case with Radium Girls. I could tell right away these are the type of stories that require multiple readings to truly comprehend and appreciate. They're so short that by the time you start to feel grounded in the story, it's over. I don't think it's a coincidence that my favorite story by far was also the longest by far; the novella at the [...]


    9. I loved every second of reading this book. I listen to a lot of female artists music-wise but don't generally read them, I find some sort of romantic drek usually creeps into what at first seems like an interesting read. Not in the stories of Radium Girls though. There is some romance but the characters are strong and not aimlessly indulgent emotionally. I fucking love The Pink Manatee, It is truly one of my favorite stories of all time and I'm an old dude who's read a lot. Amanda is a unique an [...]


    10. Phenomenal in its originality. I can't think of a single author, male or female, dead or alive, to compare with Amanda Gowin. And that's probably the highest compliment I give to any writer. The voice feels original, the stories feel original. Some pieces here resonated more strongly than others, and there were times when the story gets so bizarre, I had to re-read sections. But those are subjective calls, not technical flaws. The longest piece here, "The Pink Manatee" (almost novella length), i [...]


    11. "A unique voice" gets thrown around a lot, but when you're crossing zombies, llamas, and a poetic mind, you can't really get more unique. Radium Girls is a collection of stories and a novella bundled together with coloring book flare, in yet, another amazing Thunderdome Press production. You know at the end of the first Matrix movie, when good old Keanu does that thing, where he straightens out his hand to get a little bit more distance, and he chokes Mister Smith with his fingertips? That face [...]


    12. A singular voice telling stories of characters on the edge of madness, both wary and attracted to those ready to push them over. Gowin's writing is at times maddeningly elusive (in a good way), and then raw in its truthfulness, with most stories deserving multiple readings. But then despite all of the content of coiled violence, despair, anxiety, and dangerous desire, the book manages to be charming as hell. Now I'm curious to see what she does in her promised novel.




    13. Amanda Gowin is a unique voice—gritty and raw, surreal and poetic, but always powerful, one story on the surface, another just under your skin. This is a fantastic collection of stories.


    14. An important story, glad it was told. I fear corporations aren't any better now. The writing struck me as overly dramatic. I listened to the audio book and the reader was even more dramatic.



    15. I enjoyed the book thoroughly and the illustrations both in the book and on the page edges were brilliant. That being said the first couple of stories were bad, to the point that I almost stopped reading. It felt like I opened up book 2 of a 5 part series and someone redacted some of the information. However the later stories are good especially Pink Manatee, which is the about as long as the other stories combined.


    16. When I started reading this I got a little freaked out that it was one of those "weird for the sake of being weird" books but it grew on me as I kept reading. There were a few stories that didn't do much for me but there were some I really loved. And some came through with a shining brilliance. Definitely worth checking out.


    17. I was getting sleepy when I got back to this book tonight, and I was only at 41%, so I thought, eh. I'll just read one story and go to bed. Turned out that one story was the entire rest of the book, and it was fantastic.




    18. This isn't a review, I just couldn't figure out enough to post that RG is free for kindle right now, today and tomorrow are the last days! Link: tinyurl/q2yxkaf


    19. Stellar, a mix of excellent shorts and a novella stuck in the middle (almost end). Each of these stories left me wanting to read more
