Very personal choice of the editor,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Story: Love, Loss & The Lives of Women: 100 Great Short Stories (Kindle Edition)
I chose this book because I was heading for a course in London and imagined that the short story format would suit my commute. I did give it a good try - I sat on the tube for three hours and read most of the chapter on Lives of Women - but the stories were invaribly dismal and uninspiring - they really bought my mood down. This was a Kindle purchase, maybe if I'd bought it in paperback I might of found it easier to select from the stories? Unfortunately, since it is on my Kindle - I can't even pass it on to a friend who might enjoy it more - possibly all for the good - I love my friends and wouldn't want to be responsible for bring them down too!
