I felt ambivalent about these stories the whole time I was reading them. I think they're definitely for some people, just not for me. I didn't find the ones in the beginning interesting at all, but they were short enough for me to continue, which I guess was a good thing, as I then found some (mostly in the the middle) that sparkled.

I liked the more serious stories over the humorous ones (which says something about me, I know) and of those more serious, the longer over the shorter. The former seem more developed (which again says something about my tastes), yet I was almost in despair over the longest one that ends the book until the last two lines redeemed it for me. If not for that, this collection may have gotten one less star from me.
