Alice Munros' short stories are always exceptional including this collection. There is a sense, unfortunately , that Munro may be winding down her writing career. This collection contained attributed autobiographical materials. I eagerly await every piece that Munro authors whether it be a magazine piece or a complete book of stories. I hope that she writes forever!

I have to say that I am very disappointed after reading the first three short stories. All three were basically the same story. Young woman gets taken advantage of by a man. The stories had no depth. Frankly, I don't think that they were all that well written. None of them left me wanting to read more. or to read the next story. They were no exciting or satisfying. They were just a story with no real purpose as far as I can tell. I don't plan on reading the remainder of the book. I gave the book one star but really I would say it did not even merit one star.

    I enjoyed only a couple of the stories - best were the ones in back.

    Very interesting and complex stories

    Alice Munro writes stories that ring with the truth of life experiences and leave a person thinking long after one has finished reading. They are well worth reading in any order. I think these stories would encourage lively discussions at book club meetings.
