I simply adored each story … but grew to avoid this collection the more I read.
Carver has a way of tearing down each person, removing any sense of security and hope. Reading it once is fascinating. Twice and you begin to see what he’s getting at. Three times and the pattern sets in. And then story after story? Ugh. I found myself returning to this collection less and less. It’s all too hopeless. Too insecure. Too depressing to the human condition.
What we talk when we talk about love
I've never been one to read any type of book because I'm a lazy reader. However, after reading this short novel, It captivated me to the point of wanting to get to the finish line. And although it sort of leaves one hanging, it also helps you reflect on a your present relationship with your spouse. I could clearly relate to one of the couples.
