Hmmmm...The problem with reading multiple books by the same author is that I tend to judge all books by his/her best work. This book pales in comparison to Beartown, my favorite Backman book to date. This is a good story and well written. Great, realistic characters...but it still just didn‘t click with me.

RaimeyGallant I do that too. 1y

Because, well, do I really need a reason?

Loved this book!! I don‘t know if it‘s because my 7 year old son is just starting his obsession with hockey or if it was the memories of my own bang, bang, bang as I threw tennis balls at the back of our house. Whatever the reason, this book was so compelling. I didn‘t want to stop listening for even a second. It‘s staying with me as I keep thinking of what a different book it could have been if just a few details were changed.

This book was OK. It would be a good book club pick. There‘s some good ethical and racial discussions that can come from it. I wanted more from the mom‘s point of view!

Too sick to knit, too sick to take care of the kids who have a snow day, but after 18 hours in bed I‘m finally not too sick to read!

GloVerdino Oh no! Feel better! I'm crossing my fingers that my flight gets cancelled today so I can just stay home for the next two days (cause I already took the days off work!) 2y

Hmmm...this would have gotten a thumbs up if it wasn‘t a big tease!! It was a bookbub freebie. I love all things Elizabeth and Darcy. The stories were pretty well done. Elizabeth was a bit too bold for my liking, but still well done. The problem: the second and third stories were part 1s of multipart stories. Of course now I want to know how the stories end. Eventually I will, but not worth spending that much money on them right now.

Valink Are these short stories? 2y
