This is my first short-story collection ever read. While some stories are rather cultural-specific, most of it really was just interesting and different perspectives on life and on humanity in general. Many of them could be interpreted in different ways, of course, but most leaving something behind. I particularly liked "The Charm", "Lulu", and "God Bless You, 2011", all of which I was tearing up while reading. I also have to say the introduction was very well-written, and the finale thing to make me read this book. It's really quite beautiful, and I will be sure to return to my favorite stories. ( )
