I haven't read Munro before and it didn't take long to warm to her writing. My problem was that I didn't realise this was a collection of short stories and the more I read the more I was waiting for all the stories to tie-in with each other. I got so involved in the characters and as each new character/story evolved I was desperate for the link. When this didn't happen I was frustrated. My initial thought was 'why'. Each story was so good, I just felt cheated that they were so short, surely each could have made a book in their own right.
On reflection, once I realised that they were indeed short stories, I admired the writer all the more for packing so much into each story and for making me relate to the characters.
I am still left with the feeling that I want more though.
