The incisiveness of its observations, a peculiar sense of comedy, and an understated ruthlessness give Vast Hell its inimitable tone and originality. However, the pleasure derived from reading it can be traced primarily to one thing: the ease with which these ten stories are narrated. The gradual shift of their plots towards madness, the absurd, or a distinctly contemporary horror contrasts with the calm and even joyful style in which these stories are told, placing the reader in a contradictory and far from tranquil reality.
