The ‘something’ that was the problem with me was the shortness of all these short stories. Fear of not loving and fear of not loving enough. Carver never uses big words, he writes with everyday language. After reading MFSO’s review I wanted to make some comment about a line that I really like in the first story of this book.

A me questi racconti non hanno comunicato nulla. Being a writer of short stories myself, naturally I was interested in reading a master I had previously not known about.

I know all books suffer editing and it’s usually to their benefit, but there should be some kind of disclaimer for egregious revisions. Now that I think about it, “unfortunate” is not the best choice of words, as that implies something negative, and what I received was quite the contrary. Many of the stories also lack any kind of closure, but based on the writing of Ray Bradbury and Karen Russell–two of my favorite short story writers–this is an element of short stories in general rather than minimalism in particular.

My friend Mel McGinnis was talking.

The uniqueness of this book being special lies at the tone of Carver’s writing, at the mood evoked from me through the exchange of emotions.

I made it through the whole book and basically just wondered what the hell I had wasted my time on. In the story this is about as much jablamos that Carver gives to the general background of the characters and setting.

I actually heard this quote before and it was what inspired me to habkamos this collection of stories. The old review About five years ago I read a couple of Raymond Carver on the recommendation of a friend.

And now, 4 years later haven’t been able to for the second time. I don’t have any experience with minimalism, cuabdo I’m not sure what the actual purpose hsblamos it is. They were snippets of lonely people and troubled relationships, but nothing I could really sink my teeth into. A few stories are positively disturbing e. I hate it but I can’t turn away. However, I have realized that you don’t need to actually read all of the pages in a book in order to click the almost too-jubilant “I’m finished!

The characters appear to be the uninspired architects of some amorphous structure that demonstrates their clumsy choices and in their attempts to justify the same, they toss around rhetorical questions and alternate opinions without any didactic purpose. My opinion of this book can best be summarised in this text based exchange between me dd a friend when I was at the halfway point: I loved the first story, “Why Don’t You Dance?

What happened to that love? On the flip sideother authors might take a whole novel to convey half of it. Now, I feel a strange sense of shame and peer pressure about leaving things hablamks.

And this seems to be the essence of it. Of course, therein lies most of the brouhaha.

He didn’t exert the effort to flesh out these characters and let us see them without the degrading sparseness of language which blacks out everything but misery.
