This blog is about my literary adventures in different genres. I like variety in my reading and will read books from most genres but particulary book with some literary merit.
Short Stories are not my favourite genre. Usually once I'm into the story it is already over again. There are only very few exceptions to this rule. Sometimes a story is better kept short and the rest left to the reader's imagination.
In this collection there were several of the latter type which made me rate it 4 stars. If Goodreads had a system for half stars it would only have been 3.5. There were some stories I liked a lot (Amundsen, In sight of the lake, Night, Dear Life), others that were good but not my favourites, but also a few I didn't like or didn't care much for (To reach Japan, Train).
I definitely want to read more of Munro's writing now because one thing is sure (even from the stories I didn't like): she's an excellent writer.
