I picked this selection as Munro was awarded Nobel prize.
I was not disappointed, the style and short story structure is highly mastered, and she creates a very sensitive little world with each sensible story.
Yet 3 stars only? well, I expected some sparkle of genius or at least something beyond great craftsmanship... and I did not find it. My failure?
Honestly, I prefer S Maugham by far...

Look I don't mean she does not have good writing style and I am sure she deserved the Prizes she's won. I personally stopped reading her book because every story is a DOWNER. I enjoy reading uplifting stories, that make me smile in the end. Or that make me learn interesting things. These stories are more of a "life sucks" type of feeling. So no never again will I read Mrs Munro
