    " I was expecting more about this book. They have short stories, and most off them aren't so goog. "

    " some of the stories in this collection were great. In fact, I thought that a few could have easily developed into novels. However, more than a few we're lack luster and I was ready to finish them easily. this collection is not like her other 2 books which I felt we're pretty captivating. "

    " Better than Gilbert's self-absorbed autobiographies. The characters are full of charm, humour and heartbreak. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 7/28/2012

    " Well written, engaging stories. Got tired of the rebellious characters so I didn't finish it. "

    " Worth reading just for the story, "The Famous Torn and Restored Lit Cigarette Trick." Fantastic. "

    " I really didn't enjoy this book. I just didn't connect with the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 11/18/2010

    " What a great read from start to end! Gilbert has a fascinating (and sometimes frustrating) way of keeping the reader guessing as to the fate of the characters. Interesting read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jaime | 11/8/2010

    " There's a few decent short stories in here, but nothing earth-shattering. Quick read though--I'd recommend this for an airplane ride, commuting, etc, but only if you're a devoted Gilbertee and are interested in her other works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gosia | 10/3/2010

    " wooow. what the...? I never expected that kind of writing from Gilbert. from Carroll, Coehlo, but not from author of Eat, Pray, Love. strange one, you don't know exactly what the stories are about, what did the author take to create them, but it didnt stop me from swallowing this book. "

    " Aweful. Collection of short, unrelated stories. Couldnt even finish the book- and I can suffer through almost anything. I LOVE Elizabeth Gilberts non-fiction, I am so glad she found her calling and quit fiction!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicki | 6/7/2010

    " Collection of short stories. I was not as much a fan of this as I have been of other works by Elizabeth Gilbert. Decided I would not re-read so gave the book to a teacher who teaches short stories as a senior English elective. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 4/24/2010

    " I really liked this book of short stories. Each one was the right length for reading in one sitting. And each one felt like the beginning of a story I'd happily keep reading. The characters were strong and often unusual. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Benjamin | 4/7/2010

    " The first two stories I've read are wonderful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/19/2010

    " Very good short stories - not always as bleak as I often find short stories. This was Liz's first published book, I believe. "
