    "Very Gentle & Enjoyable"

    I got this because I felt I had an Alice Munro shaped gap in my listening/reading, plus I love short stories. I especially like short stories where not an awful lot happens - and these fit that bill well, too. In fact, her story telling is so cleverly subtle, there are actual plots (usually - others meander rather less purposefully, but that's fine too), you just don't always see the plot until quite some way in.

    Some of the stories were a little too inconclusive even for my relaxed approach to a tale - but I enjoyed them all very much anyway.

    Highly evocative of time and place.

    The narrators were very good, with voices that changed well for different stories - especially the male reader; and with gentle styles that suited the writing.
