I don't know if i was not in the mood or what, but i tried this book to see why she won the Nobel... It got me so bored!!! I rated it with 2 stars because some chapters are interesting, but it kinda get you lost, and with that, you lose interest on the book. At least that happened to me

Paul Teese Guess I was in the mood. This book made my week. I greatly admired her craft. I'm thankful for Alice Munro.
Tanis Dennis You all realize that this is a collection of short stories not a novel, right?
Renee I am struggling as well. I will definitely finish it, but but I was expecting more.
Danita L Hmmmm, thought that was a question but it looks like a review. There aren't any chapters. They are short stories.
Mari Leme I got the exact same impression! Of all chapters I really liked only two. I felt quite dissapointed with this book from Alice Munro. My expectations were really high about Alice Munro, so I felt quite frustrated after all.
