After having this on my wish list with Amazon.com and the swap for several months, it was such a let down when I finally read it. The first story wasn't bad, just not great. The second story had promise but was confusing from the start and while I do enjoy a story that has some regional dialect and nuance so that you get a stronger feel for the setting, there was too much for me in this one. I found it very distracting. So about 10 pages in, I shut the book and put it back on the swap.
Perhaps I'm being unfair since I didn't finish the second story but I'm so glad I didn't spend money on this book. That's the beauty of the swap--win some, lose some!
