The Blogging of a Book Addict
The Blogging of a Book Addict rated it 3 years ago
In fairness, this is probably close to a 3.5 star review, because I found myself getting bored a few times throughout, and generally was not nearly as captivated as I would need to be for a perfect 4 star review. That said, with a short story collection I prefer to rate according to my favorite shor...

I have been reading lots of short stories this past week, maybe because I'm supposed to be writing my dissertation and reading short things makes me feel less guilty - I'll just read one and get back to it, I'll think. Of course this is just a way to deceive myself, but I'll be voluntarily deceived ...

I loved "To Esme With Love and Squalor"

Am parcurs cartea pe etape, fiindca povestirile aveau viata lor proprie si nu prea mergeau citite una dupa alta. Recunosc, mi s-a parut straniu cand am terminat-o pe prima (cea cu pestii-banana) si am constatat ca povestea este lasata in aer. La fel a fost si urmatoarea, si urmatoarea. M-am lamurit ...

I hated the repetitiveness. I mean I hated the repetitiveness. A few stories were okay, though. But for the most part they were confusing to me.

Fantastic. There were a few bits that required me to Google who or what certain people or things mentioned were.

Alright, well. That was umm... I don't know what that was. I needed to read a non-Goodreads friend recommended book for a challenge, and this is what I got saddled with. I've never read any Salinger, and honestly, this doesn't have me rushing out to change that fact. Thankfully, it was short. I star...

I wish J.D. had written another novel or two. None of his short stories do it for me like Catcher. But there are at least four in this collection that I really like, and A Perfect Day for Bannanafish is just perfect.Also I read this on an endless day of traveling while backpacking, so maybe I wasn´t...

An outstanding book I can read over and over again. I love that a good portion of the stories is happening in the head of the reader rather than on the pages. My favourite stories are Esmé, The Laughing Man, A Perfect day for bananafish and Down at the Dinghy (and depending on my mood Teddy), oh and...
