I didn't enjoy this one very much. It's a short story collection, so it cycles through many different characters and situations--except that they aren't really that different from each other. This book makes it seem like Weiner doesn't have all that many ideas, so she remixes the few she has. Maybe that could happen with any author, but I found it a bit wearisome. I liked it a little better after I read the backstories to each story in the back of the book, but not enough to bump it up another star.
