What Gregory does so well is barely show you anything you want to see. “We Are All Completely Fine” easily could have been twice as long as the 192-page novella it is. Every character hints at a back story rich in dark fantasy and inventive malevolence, any one of which could be a novel on its own. Instead Gregory gives you just what you’d experience if you were sitting there with the group, and the story zips along at breakneck speed with a few surprises along the way.
“We Are All Completely Fine” is creepy rather than scary, unsettling rather than gory. But it’s also touching, and funny in that dark and sarcastic way only people faced with unstoppable horror can be funny, and when you’re finished you’ll wish there was more. And that’s not a bad way to end a therapy session.
