Half in Love with 'Half in Love'
I felt that this collection of stories was melancholy at best. I also felt that there were some general writing flaws that could not be overlooked, and they served as a distraction to what could have otherwise been a wonderful book of stories.Was this review helpful?

Not so good
We chose this book for our book club, and it was declared a unanimous flop! Half of the members couldn't get through it, including the one with the english masters degree. We felt that the stories were unrealistic and overly dramatic. We also felt that as the stories progressed, it became easy to determine their theme. A few stories were good but many were not. We also encountered literary 'no-no's' and wondered how this book ever ended up being critiqued in such a positive light. It felt amateurish and over-the-top.Was this review helpful?
