really liked it
bookshelves: fiction

I'm so surprised how much I liked this book (I thought it might be chick-lit but it wasn't). I was moved to check the book out from the library believing (for some reason I can't defend) that the title story involved what happened with Elizabeth Darcy (nee Bennett) after she married Mr. Darcy. This turned out not to be the case, but even with my mistake, this book of short stories was engaging. The characters are interesting, the narratives are snappy and modern and occasionally lyrical. Each story stands on its own (not linked) and each one was its own little world.

Surprised by how much I liked this.

This is not chick lit.

Not one story about shoes. Or shopping. Or any of the other things I usually associate with the genre.
