did not like it
bookshelves: short-stories, abandoned

Unfortunately, this wonderful writer is not for me. Her stories are so dismal. I've tried to read Ms. Munro's work many times and I always end up abandoning it. OK, let me be perfectly blunt: For me, this woman's writing can ruin a perfectly good day. Her writing is magnificent; her subject matter plunges me down a dingy well.

Laura Totten So true. I was so glad when I finished her book,"Selected Stories." Strange subject matter and her stories were just unfulfilling.

Kishwar Agreed! She may be a master of her craft, but for me it wasn't enough to make up for the bleak characters and stories.
