it was ok
Read from June 06 to November 13, 2010 , read count: 1

It is interesting the way I have been reading books lately I have associations with other than the contents of the book itself. I finished this book during the great power outage of 2010. (OK, it was only on my block and only lasted 24 hours, but hey...). But I will remember that.

I started this about 10 years ago and only read about 40 pages, not even finishing the first of 3 short stories comprising this collection. I picked it up and finished it in a few days once I put my mind to it. As for the book, I think Ms. Porter is one of those authors people who are serious book people and English teachers love, yet no one reads and they never reached a wide audience. I'm afraid I'd have to side with the masses on this one. I found the writing pretty dry and altho the characters have some life to them, I wasn't gripped in any way, shape or form.
