    1. 24. Toronto Noir edited by Janine Armin and Nathaniel G. MooreA wonderful collection of noir stories, enhanced by the fact that they are set on streets that I am only too familiar with. However, with some of the things that have been going on here for the past few months, we may be inspiring enough for a second volume. Other reviewers have complained that these tales are not noir enough, but this is Toronto, eh. I loved how Ben Mulroney showed up interviewing a teen star. There was a great Toron [...]

    2. I expected dark glimpses of Toronto, I didn't expect to be so entertained. I've read books by some of the authors in this collection and the added bonus is I have some new authors to check out.

    3. As a fan of the noir genre, I am thrilled that Akashic Books’ first entry in the “noir project” (Brooklyn Noir) became sufficiently successful that it now has over 30 anthologies in the series, and counting. Starting with my home town, Toronto, I will be working my way through these collections of themed short stories as time and finance permits.For those not familiar with this series, all the stories in a given anthology are noir in style and set in the particular city named in the title. [...]

    4. Sometimes a place - a country, a city or a neighborhood - inexplicably captures my attention and imagination. I want to read about it, watch movies that are set there, talk to people who have been there, all in preparation of (perhaps) one day visiting the place myself. For the past year or so the city of Toronto has been the place that captured by attention and imagination. I also love mysteries. When I sawToronto Noirat a book festival last April it felt like a sign. Here was a book that combi [...]

    5. Toronto hides. It conceals the dark vices found in any city of size. From time to time, these vices bubble to the surface creating headlines in the Sun and Star that shock the populace and Canada. More often, much more often, these stories are buried. In this collection, some of those stories are told and told eloquently. I lived in Toronto from 2001 to 2007 and have visited extensively before and after. It has never felt big. It never felt overtly scary. Trouble can find you anywhere. What puls [...]

    6. For the uninitiated, Akashic Books is a small publisher who has found a niche in producing a series of short story collections, each set in a different city or location and featuring writers who live or have some connection to that area. The stories are all noirish in tone, although that depends largely on what each guest editor interprets as noir. The quality of these collections is generally uneven, depending largely on the available writer population. Despite all that, or maybe because of it, [...]

    7. This is the worst book of the city noir genre that I have read. When I pick up a short story collection that is in the, "Noir", genre, I expect it to have stories featuring the gritty, underground of the city in the title. This book is full of stories about middle class people in Toronto. Very few of the stories even feature an actual crime. Every story reminded me of a Margret Atwood novel.I'd hate to think that that is the only kind of authors that get published in Ontario, because that would [...]

    8. +Gives great insight into the city of Toronto; paints vivid pictures of little worlds that exist within the city and just a few blocks from each other. In reading this, I realized how unfamiliar with the city I actually was.+Some stories, such as “A Bout of Regret”, are great. Most are good, and one or two are just bad. Look forward to seeing future installments from Toronto. -Was not a fan of the excessive quotes in the first short story, I felt they took away from the narrative more than t [...]

    9. I gave this up partway through the fifth story. I only liked one of the stories that I'd read to that point - "Walking the Dog" - and it missed out on being a great story by not ending with the first plot twist. "Filmsong" was OK as well. The other stories weren't as fun as they seemed to be trying to be, and tried a little too hard to squeeze in every possible reference to the neighbourhood that they were trying to evoke. A disappointing effort.

    10. Most have good use of neighbourhood/location. Standouts: George Elliott Clarke's story for gorgeous language and interesting situations; Peter Robinson's send-up of/tribute to old noir; Ibi Kaslik for an interesting journey.

    11. I read this one because I was going to Toronto to see the Red Sox play the Blue Jays. It got me acquainted with the seamy side of some of the Toronto neighborhoods. Maybe I should have stuck to Fodor or the Triple A guidebook. Three of the short stories were interesting, the rest forgettable.

    12. Like most such collections, the stories were uneven. But I did appreciate the extent to which they all were pretty evocative of Toronto and seemed well-rooted in the city. I enjoyed that aspect quite a bit, even when some of the individual stories were pretty "meh."

    13. My "official" book souvenir (not counting all the other books I bought) of my trip to Toronto. Purchased at "The Biggest Bookstore in the World", which being just a Chapters was a major disappointment, especially since they did not have a special bookbag, but c'est la vie.

    14. A wildly inconsistent set of short stories all "set" in Toronto. Some are quite enjoyable and use the setting to enhance the story; others merely throw in a couple of local references and call it a day. Mostly designed with someone who does not live in Toronto in mind.

    15. Not a particularly memorable collection, but there's just something about reading about the places you live and the places you know. Some of us don't get that very often.

    16. Very odd mix of stories. Unlike the other editions in this series, I found the quality of the writing to be quite disparate. Interesting at times, but I cannot recommend this one.

    17. Some of the stories didn't quite sit well with me. Obviously regarding the subject matter, but also, some of them left me wondering or shaking my head.

    18. Truly noir not my fave genre but it's my hometown so I add a star. la! A couple of stories are worth reading the whole book.

    19. un-remarkable. un-memorable. I had forgotten I'd read previously till I was half way into the second story. "Potboiler" is too kind

    20. Only stories I really enjoyed we're walking the dog & a bout of regret. The rest sort of fell flat for me
