Man V. Nature by Diane   Cook
Man V. Nature: Stories
by Diane Cook (Goodreads Author)

Clear rating
The stories in this collection are exciting and fresh, but they're also grim to the point of exhaustion. There's a spareness to the language that makes them more like tales than stories, and that level of remove makes them less present.

Aziz Ansari could read the phone book and it would be entertaining. So the audiobook was a lot of fun, even while a lot of the information the book and scientific studies about modern love seem obvious. Ansari elevates the material from the mundane.

Don't Let Me Go by Catherine Ryan Hyde
Don't Let Me Go

This was a bookclub read. It's shallow and trite. Maybe I'm jaded, having just read a book with such emotional depth and true pathos (A Little Life). This was like a Hallmark movie in book form.
