    1. I received a free copy of this book from First Reads in exchange for an honest review.Dark City Lights is a book of short stories with NYC as the common theme. Some are from the past as well as one from the future. There are 23 stories contained in the book, the longest at 38 pages, the shortest comes in at 4 pages.Many of the stories happen to be my first exposures to their author's writing. It was a perfect book to carry around for a few days, casually reading while waiting for appointments, [...]


    2. Dark City Lights is a compilation of 23 short stories based on New York City with lots of diversity between the authors. The stories range from every day events that you might find in New York to the strange and bizarre like alien invasions and goddesses. There is a little bit of everything that will appeal to everyone.I like reading anthologies because you get introduced to many different authors and you get a variety of styles. I also like the short stories to pass time between appointments an [...]


    3. Dark City Lights is a really enjoyable collection of short stories. I liked the fact they are all set in New York City. The setting is where the similarity ends and the unique aspect of this collection is the diversity of the stories. The subject matters are far ranging including the apocalypse, crime stories and love stories. I enjoyed the element of surprise and how I never knew where the next story was going to take me. I like it when an author takes me somewhere unexpected. This happened aga [...]


    4. Come And Spend Some Time in the Dark Underbelly of New York CityWhat I like most about this anthology is getting to read the work of 23 writers, the majority of whose work I have never read before, all in one place. In "Dark City Lights" the editor, Lawrence Block, has chosen a wide array of stories and styles with the unifying thread of the location, New York City. But the location in no way limits the scope of these stories. I found them fascinating, scary, thrilling and, with the best of them [...]


    5. I won this book in a giveaway in exchange for an honest review. The book is a compilation of 23 stories all of which take place in New York. All the stories reminded me of the old Twilight Zone program. The stories all had an eerie vibe to them and left you with a "hmmmm" attitude when they were finished. I prefer a book length story but occasionally like and enjoy short stories such as these.I recommend this book if you are in the mood for a group of interesting and somewhat unusual stories by [...]


    6. Lawrence Block has brought together quite a collection of short stories in this work. Many of the stories had me wishing the short story had been longer. Block features a variety of styles in the book and there should be something that appeals to practically everyone in the collection. I received this copy through the Firstread program and it was good to read and see New York City in many different lights.


    7. So yea, I hated some of those stories and loved others. Just a mix of eclectic backgrounds and characters. The shortest story on there by Warren Moore was the one that has still stuck with me. Besides Block's story which is bound to be a good setup Moore's was my favorite. Just a good opening to other authors to check out.


    8. A great collection of short stories. Only a few are hard to understand, most are really meaningful and fun to ponder over. I really am glad to have won this book here on . Ill be keeping this to read stories again.



    9. A collection of short stories set in New York city. Of rather uneven quality, some exceptional and some forgettable. The problem is that, as a whole, rather than noir they just seem to be dreary.
