I liked the stories and how the different authors combined their writing styles to create a cohesive book. ( )

"That’s the thing about finding the right person to love. When someone loves you, all their hang-ups don’t really mean much. Because loving that person is a choice you have to make every day, even when that day isn’t what you expect."

I love the way the stories were woven together in this anthogy-ish book. What a fun read! ( )

Clever book that makes you forget that it is written by different authors because it links the characters through brothers and sisters and residents of an old people's home when the electricity goes out in New York City one hot Summer's evening. People are left to find their way to check in on those they care about, people are trying to get to a big party whether as guests or as acts (DJs) and all the stories intertwine in the darkness as people move across the city anyway they can aby walking and also by the buses and cars that are still moving although there are no traffic lights.
I guess the point of the intertwined stories is to show how small the world really is - we all know someone who knows someone that knows us - and despite our differences , can pull together when times are difficult.
