Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lori | 2/19/2014

    " Hard to rate a collection of short stories. Four stars for the first story. Three stars for Escape from Spiderhead. One or two stars for the rest of the bunch. I love how Saunders creates a world just slightly askew. But in all but a couple of cases, I think he doesn't quite show the inner lives of his characters in some of those weird environments. "

    " Note: I am not a fan of the short story genre. I like to take more time to get to know my characters. But I made an exception and read this book because of the all the reviews. In my opinion, the wonderful reviews were completely accurate. George Saunders does something very interesting in every one of these short stories - he drops you into the mind of a completely formed character. So, my problem with short stories was void. I didn't love every one of the stories, but most of them. And all of them left me a little startled, or even in stunned silence. Very emotionally charged. Will read more by this very talented author. "

    " This is a wonderful book. So creative and surprising. Lots of unexpected juxtapositions that make Saunders a joy to read. I dig this collection of short stories. Some R-rated themes. "

    " No one is writing like George Saunders today. Three of the stories, the longer ones, are absolutely incredible. The others merely great. It's not for everyone, but everyone should check it out. "
