    1. 5 5 StarsThis is a collection of short stories that focus on the struggles that women face both as inherently being a part of the female gender and also being part of the bigger patriarchal society that we live in These stories employ the concept of magical realism to talk about women s struggles in an indirect way Brownrigg talks of everything from women in the work force to women not wanting to have children to anorexia Brownrigg weaves beautifully lyrical stories that will surely stick with y [...]


    2. Very disappointed This book is a compilation of 10 stories, each written about a special woman in the author s life The problem is that the stories were just too abstract It just didn t make any sense It was as if the author took a certain personal chunk of the women s lives and wrote about that I felt like I was witnessing an inside joke but she forgot to explain the background.Since I really liked Pages For You, I trudged through this book, but if any other author had written it I wouldn t hav [...]


    3. This book has been at work, so I decided to read it I wasn t really a fan of it The story I liked most in it would be the bird chick The least, would be I think it s called Husky Hussy or something like that.


    4. I thought this was a horrible book I read the first 2 stories and put it down because it was not exciting There was not anything keeping me tied into the stories at all.


    5. This book was really confusing and I felt I was on the outside of an inside joke the entire time I was reading it.



    6. as with most short story collections some were good and some were weird I liked the Mistress of Many Moons the best
