review 1: If a novel is like a movie, then these short stories were like photographs, interesting snap shots that absorb your gaze because of the depth of the characters. As the story progressed I saw different things and by the end was glad I had visited each photo, each story. I was surprised at how much empathy I felt for so many of the characters, how quickly I became absorbed in their story. I have never read a collection of short stories all by one author before, but I would certainly try it again. I am interested in seeing what else author Alix Ohlin has written.

Slice of life short stories. Not an anthology, all stories are by the same author.
(3.7/5.0) Cute stuff, only a few with great substance.
My favourite - "Bruno"
