Thumbprint - Joe Hill
Thumbprint: A Story - Joe Hill

A veteran from the Iraqi war comes back to the states to live in the house of her recently deceased father and begins bartending at a local bar. One night she finds a patron passed out in the parking lot and promptly steals the money out of his wallet and the wedding ring off of his finger. Soon afterwards, she mysteriously begins getting photocopies of thumbprints and we learn that she was made to do some unsavory things during her deployment in Iraq.

 

While Hill's writing is always good. This story falls flat due to main character being unlikable. While she didn't have it easy while in Iraq, it simply feels like she wasn't that nice of a person to begin with. It makes it hard to have any sympathy for her plight back home.

Thumbprint - Joe Hill,Jason Ciaramella,Vic Malhotra A mediocre story with the uninspired realization riding on the wave of revelations of atrocities committed in Iraq and Abu Ghraib

Thumbprint: A Story - Joe Hill

Here we are again Mr. Hill, with a book that starts good but with an ending that makes me just as frustrated as the last short story I read written by you. This is so tormenting that I don't know if I should continue with your short stories but I probably will...
