The tying together of short stories with one central event is not a new storytelling technique, but it is one that can work well and Honey Brown has done that with this collection. While the tragic death of a man is the plot that connects the characters the theme is desire and attraction. As the subtitle states it does connect us all.
I applaud Honey Brown for taking a leap into a completely different genre and doing it successfully. Her writing talent speaks for itself as she tells the stories in her usual engaging and compelling style. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with Six Degrees and while I would probably have liked the connecting thread of the stories to be stronger I did enjoy the book and wouldn't hesitate to read more of a similar style.
