An acceptable addition to the collection

What did you like best about Summer Days and Summer Nights? What did you like least?

With both short story collections I liked the Stephanie Perkins story best. In the holiday collection, I found it was the most relatable (to me personally) and there was something special and low key about it. This time, however, I was just relieved to find something I could count on.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Honestly, I'm not sure what disappointed me this time around. Maybe it's because we all experience the holiday season in such different ways that the stories are naturally easier to differentiate, but this time it felt like, as a whole, they were trying too hard. I want to be clear that a few of the stories -- Last Stand at the Cinegore, Inertia, The Map of Tiny Perfect Things -- with strong concepts were very good and really helped propel me through the book; unfortunately, they were few and far in between.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I have no complaints about the performances.

Any additional comments?

While not as good as its predecessor, Summer Days and Summer Nights is a totally acceptable way to spend a warm weekend in June.
