    Love Stories in This Town is a smart and insightful look at women and the infinite number of ways they love.

    Love Stories in This Town is a smart and insightful look at women and the infinite number of ways they love. There are women loving their husbands, boyfriends, parents, and babies. There are women leaving for love or staying, being heartbroken or up-lifted, letting go of their dreams or clinging to them fiercely. The breadth of the stories is impressive and yet Amanda Eyre Ward somehow manages to get the feel in each one right. The stories are sharp, but also a little mysterious and beautiful, like love itself.

    I especially liked the series of stories about Lola, following her through life as she experiences different kinds of love and as her love for each person in her life matures and changes. I felt like each story offered up a subtle lesson and I often could relate to what the characters were going through. I didn't love this book quite as much as Amanda Ward Eyre's novels, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

    Not at all what I expected

    I picked up this book thinking it would be a series of love stories between couples with different plots and endings. What I got was completely different. For me, all the characters were slightly neurotic. I couldn't identify with them at all and their stories didn't have much to do with love at all. I'd give this book a zero if I could.

    Love Stories

    Amanda pulled me into the book quickly, with her wit and sense of hope. I love the series of stories about Lola, where I got a good pictures of how a woman can change over the course of her life, and how she can love differently, yet perfectly, each time. My only complaint is that the book was over so soon. I read it quickly, and was hungry for more.
