Top Customer Reviews
I enjoyed reading `JP', and it was definitely interesting to read a Slovenian author whose stories had a distinct feeling of that part of the world. The stories were short, and very easy to read. In fact the whole book probably only took me a couple of hours, and was well worth the effort. However, for me, the true test of short stories or novellas is how well they stick in the mind, and I have to confess that `JP' didn't really do this for me. I think that Jancar was very successful in his aims, but this wasn't a collection that I found to be especially moving or memorable. I wouldn't advise anyone against reading `JP', and its something that I may return to in the future, but it certainly didn't blow me away.
