Great stories. Gripping from the first paragraph with unexpected endings that often leave you thinking. Always about simple life situations that she manages to portray in very unusual and interesting ways.
She is a very creative writer

Ms. Munro is my hero. I'm not going to mince my words. Such talent deserves to be recognized as extraordinary.

But her talent comes not from flash and flourish. Ms. Munro's stories are insightful and get under the skin. They ring true because of the immense literary background from which they come.

Other reviewers will latch onto the details. I can only say: begin reading Alice Munro. If you love the short story form, it is imperative you read the very best.

I do not understand why Alice Munro's writing rates the Nobel Peace Prize. There are so many better (Canadian) authors who could win this award.....Amy McKay comes to mind in The Birth House. Munro's stories deal with human relationships, and to give her credit, she is an amazing word-smith, but her stories lack resolution. I am always left hanging - wondering where the ending was, what did I miss?
Having said that, I was spell-bound, finishing the book quickly. (likely looking for that elusive ending somewhere....) I am from Wingham, her hometown, so I always feel compelled to read every book she writes. I still don't get it...

This is Alice Munro's specialty, the short story. A must read for Canadians and any else who loves a well-written story.

As always Alice Munro has given us another great read, I enjoyed it very much. Her description of the characters is so well done.

Munro writes real people, as though she knows them, and she probably does. I finish her stories with mixed feelings; disappointment that I don't get to spend more time with the people she's introduced me to, and a sense of ponderousness, that I must have missed something, because the moral she is pointing out is not the one I got from the story two sentences before. Really enjoyable reading, and the last story is truly revealing.

As so many have said before, her writing is taut, both elegant and elegiac, and surprises the reader with crafty new uses of familiar words. And gives the reader much to ponder -- usually of vanished times but yet so current emotions.

When I drove through the quiet towns of Ontario I used to wonder who live there and what they do for a living. Of course these towns have changed from the time when Mumro wrote this book (a lot of them maybe more deserted, which is sad). But I belive you don't have to grow up in Canada to understand the people in this book. Many of these stories remind me of my mother and her friends living in towns of China, twenty years ago: Life may be simple and satisfying, but can change because of a slightest thought.
