While I appreciate O'Brien's gift of language, I almost think I would have enjoyed these stories better if I'd heard her read them in her rich Irish voice. The themes are mostly trite and not anything I can really relate to. I do appreciate the fact that she can take rather ordinary material and enrich it however.
