really liked it

I loved these stories. They were beautiful, little slices of life. Each sliver was richly described with characters you could really feel for. There is no pretty little bow at the end of these stories, but I liked that too -- the story ended, but you knew that wasn't the end (though it doesn't leave you unsatisfied in any way). In a couple of cases, you see recurring characters and it's a sweet surprise to know how those lives turned out. There's a lot of heartbreak and a lot of strength. But such is life, no?
