really liked it

I'm not a short story person. I prefer novels, and I actually don't think I've read a book of short stories in about 6 years (excluding the ones I read in college). I gave this one a try, though, because I loved The Monsters of Templeton and I knew that I was going to meet Lauren Groff. I am so glad I read it. Short stories are just a different reading experience, and these are like miniature novels. The characters are incredibly well-developed, and each of the nine stories has its own flavor and feel. They didn't necessarily convert me to short story-lover, though--I don't think any other collection could compare to this one.
