5.0 out of 5 stars Taster
Bought this as a taster for the author after reading a favourable review from Jonathan Franzen. Will definitely read more although I don't normally favour short stories which appears to be her only genre
Published 24 months ago by P. T. Hartill

2.0 out of 5 stars Rather a pointless read
I'm sure many will disagree with me but I found it hard to get into this book, I did not care much about any of the characters, the plot was thin and meandering and it seemed to come to a rather sudden end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Alice Munro, un-put-downable., 4 April 2013

This review is from: Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage (Storycuts) (Kindle Edition)
Loved the story. I was disappointed when I came to the end as I hadn't realised it was a short story - too good to be true, I suppose, at that price.
Have ordered another of Alice Munro's collections now.

Just loved this book - my kinda book - short stories - no time to get bored. Alice has deserved the Nobel Prize and in her 80s too.

Briliant author, so richly deserving of her recent Nobel Prize for Literature. A unique talent, wonderfully accessible yet always surprising.

Charmed by her writing, get lost in the characters, you get the same warm satisfaction you felt after you had finished 'To Kill A Mockingbird'.

4.0 out of 5 stars good story, 27 Oct 2013

have not read Alice Munro before so new genre for me. I enjoyed the story but
would have preferred it to be a longer novel. I felt there were so many points
which could have been developed Too much left unsaid and I suppose in one
way a good thing, left one wanting to know more.
