    Missed The Mark

    This anthology of essays concerning The Great Garden State was a great idea but the contributing authors didn't seem to get it right. Perhaps they didn't understand the assignment. Perhaps the editor misled me. Whatever the situation, the book was basically a letdown for me.

    What was billed as a book of stories from New Jersey writers on life in NJ, turned out to be a bunch of stories about how the writers grew up in Jersey hating Jersey only to move away and realize Jersey made them what they were and now can half-heartedly admit they miss the place just a tad. Who needs to read that story over and over and over again.

    There were one or two jewels in the rough. One story in particular about ghost hunting and general weird NJ living was the highlight of the collection. All in all however I did not identify with any of these stories of life in New Jersey. Many of the essays seemed meaningless or pointless. And to bring the point home once again, the collection as a whole seemed very one-demensional.

    A great idea gone wrong. Would like to see someone else revisit the premise and pull it off correctly.
