Please comment here on Victory over Japan from Chapter 8 through to the End. This incorporates short stories titled Nora Jane and Crystal.

Jim | 10 comments I gave this book 3 stars. Probably a 3.5 if I could have. I thought it was well written and most of the stories were quite interesting. That said, I suspect short stories in general aren't for me. I find it disconcerting to find myself at a new story with new characters invariably just when I start to get into the story.

Ginger Bensman (dispatchesfromamessydesk) I just finished Victory Over Japan. The Nora Jane section was my hands down favorite section of the book. I thought Chrystal was exhausting. Gilchrist's writing is often funny and always energetic, and her character development is outstanding, I enjoyed the book but didn't find Chrystal, Rhoda, Lady Margaret, or the majority of the supporting characters very likable.
