    1.

    2. A delightful read Interesting, humorous and soulful characters I usually shy away from short story collections but this one captured my attention as it follows the wise main character throughout the love hate relationships of her life This is one to read again and again as you ponder the many questions of life.

    3. I loved this book of short stories It had some of the best lines that it made me want to go buy the book so I could refer to them again I read it in one day and wished there were stories Will go find her other books.

    4. I got this book after reading one of her stories in The Sun, You Choose I think she s a really good writer but I didn t like this collection quite as much as I had hoped, maybe it was just how grim many of them were I thought the last story, Final Dispositions, was quite good.

    5. Alice Munro s blurb on the cover says it all These stories won me over at once, heart and mind together I laughed and I cried Loved this book
