Format: Hardcover
This collection of short stories by Lisa Moore is quite original, emotional and intense in its own right. However, for me, it also comes down to style, and I just couldn't get a handle on the writing style chosen by the author. It is very clipped, one might even say "poetic", but it made it difficult for me to remain interested and read on.
If you don't mind this style, then you will surely enjoy these stories that have been praised by many reviewers.

I found this short story collection by Lisa Moore to be very Comfortable. I love her writing style; short sentences, vivid imagery. Her words leave me with feelings, I never knew I could have. I loved this book. It always left me with something to think about. Great read.

Format: Paperback
Pontificating from the short story is one thing. But to do it, you should at least be a good writer. I picked up this book on the suggestions of someone whose opinion I THOUGHT I could trust. Guess I was wrong.

The stories are transparent, the writing is choppy and reads like a fifth-graders English assignment and I guess she must have used her family for all the characters, because they all look alike to me (on paper, anyway). Don't waste your time OR money. Buy something worth reading.

I'm sure Ms. Moore is a very nice person. But I hope she hasn't given up her day job yet.
