I found these a bit of a slog to get through but then felt like discussing them at book group opened my eyes to how much I'd enjoyed them. They are dense and complex stories which reward later discussion and thought. The one I remember most now is Before the Change, a story about illegal abortions. ( )

Once again I find Munro to be sort of infuriatingly slow to read. It took me several weeks to get through this collection. Her prose is precise to the point at times almost of tedium, and yet her precision is also somehow effortless and right. So I find the stories simultaneously hard to get through and awfully engaging. It's obvious to me that she's a good writer, but I can't say that I find her writing inspiring. My favorite authors tend to be the ones who make me want to write my own work, and Munro does not have this effect on me. ( )

My applause for this 1998 collection of eight stories is lost in the mass exultations from the arena - those who have long known of Munro's terrific skill. I'll simply say that all eight stories I found enjoyable; the title -and lead - story is my favorite here. Munro explores the complexities of human emotions, their inner lives, secrets and regrets, in a clearly evinced way. Several of these stories make rather complex journeys toward the truth. Besides the anchor novella/story, another that stands out is "Save The Reaper", from The New Yorker -1998, in which a mildly distressed grandmother takes a ride into a gothic, menacing place suggestive of Flannery O'Connor, before the story resurfaces into a slightly more reputable atmosphere.

Oh yes, I'll be revisiting her, sooner than later. ( )

This is a collection of short stories. All of them are set in Canada, often in small towns or summer cottages, most of them in the 1950s or 60s, and feature love and sex, affairs and babies, and people who sometimes feel almost painfully realistic.

The title story was actually the first thing of Alice Munro's I ever read, in some anthology or other, and I was immediately impressed by it, particularly by all the tiny little details that simultaneously seemed so true to familiar human experience and so utterly original. What strikes me now, having read the rest of the stories in this collection, is how often Munro provides us with these deft little details while simultaneously leaving the big emotional stuff that's actually at the heart of the story mostly implicit and hinted at. This doesn't always entirely work for me; there are pieces in here that I find a little unsatisfying, no matter how well-written they are. But when it works, it really works.

Rating: I'm giving this one a 4/5, but the best stories definitely rate higher than that. ( )

As this book is a collection of short stories, it is hard to give this book an overall rating. These four stars are an average between two and five. Some stories left you wondering what was their point at all and feel "undertold", while others have truly touched me. I especially enjoyed descriptions of Vancouver before I knew it. She has truly captured the spirit of that city!

Overall, once you get used to Munro's disordered "life snpashots" style, the stories are very enjoyable if a bit repetitive by the end. Not sure if I will ever pick up another Munro book but I am definitely glad that I have read this one. ( )

For the last couple of decades, there has been a museum in Walley, dedicated to preserving photos and butter churns and horse harnesses and an old dentist's chair and a cumbersome apple peeler and such curiosities as the pretty little porcelain-and-glass insulators that were used on telegraph poles.
