Re-read so as to remember for book group next month. Saw more themes & appreciated stories more than on first reading. Quality did not seem as divergent as at first reading. ( )

short stories of varying quality. some, like the seven fat brides, are like old fables, which are just ok. some, like looking for the answers and the eight day, were somewhat pointless. many were about sad relationships, such as gifts and elvis, axl, and me. my favorite were pu-239, the hall of meteorites, stone, what must i say to you, mrs saunders writes to the world, and mr. mitochondria. they're mostly realistic and provide characters to ponder.
