liked it

This is an interesting compilation of stories -- many of them good-- I liked some better than others. The author has a strong voice and the book is well written. I can see why critics and academics praise this book. However after reading many of her stories they started becoming formulaic. The first half of the book I loved - fresh voice, haunting tales, raw, savage humanity described in a tender, no nonsense way. The second half was not as interesting. I think this book is worth reading, but it has some obscene content and isn't a feel good book - not that it's supposed to be.
