Overall I enjoyed the short stories in the book. Some I liked, some I disliked, some I really enjoyed. Short stories are hard to stand out and show what the author really has to show, unless it's an entire collection of short stories by them. But I enjoyed them because they were all about different types of women facing issues of love, becoming of them selves, and other life "bumps". Two of the stories I liked the best were, Say Cheese and No Baggage. They had the best characters, and best ending. I think for some of the others, as to why I disliked some of them, was that some were very particular (Al and Christiens World of Leather, The Clutter Rut, are two that come to mind). These were very odd, and the ending for both made little since, the characters in it were also unbelievable. With that being said, for the most part, the stories and the book as a whole is a good read.

A collection from some of Europe's most esteemed women's fiction writers. Probably something in here for everyone. ( )

I found most of the stories uninspiring and only one of them had anything to do with a bookclub. Although the cause is worthy (Supporting Breast Cancer Care and they get extra in the score for that) I honestly only really enjoyed one story and that was the one that involved a bookclub. Mediocore at best, turgid at worst. ( )
