really liked it

These stories are very beautiful, creative, and well-written. I liked some more than others, but as a whole collection, what most impressed me was the tone: a combination of melancholy, tenderness, gentle humor, heartbreak, and hope. I loved "That of Which We Cannot Speak," "The Thing Itself," "We've Got a Great Future Behind Us," and "Someday is Today." I thought some of the dialogue was too clever and stilted, and I wished the collection had not been so entirely heterosexual (there seem to be no gay people in this world), but otherwise, this was a very pleasurable and often moving read.
