I enjoyed most of these quite a bit. I struggled with the post-WWII/Vietnam War era, but I've always disliked that period of literature the most. This was an interesting way of studying how writing and themes have changed in 100 years of American history, and most of the stories were well worth the time. ( )

I have been reading this on and off for nine months and it is wonderful. Every time I come back to it it is like entering a warm house with the wonderful smells of Thanksgiving. Cannot say I loved every story but most were great and thoroughly enjoyable. It was particularly pleasureful to re-read some of the more recent stories that I knew from the annual volumes. The changing and variety of styles and subjects through the last 100 years was fascinating. A great read if you have any interest at all in short fiction. ( )
