A quick introduction to many of the popular "chick lit" authors writing today. It gives you a brief taste of their writing style so that you can explore longer works by those who interest you. While in and of itself not extraordinary it is an excellent reference and starting point to help you find authors whose work you might enjoy and which will definitely be better than their short pieces featured in this book. The book was created as a fundraiser and the stories contributed are not necessarily the best representatives of what the author can produce but many of them are good and it gives you direction in your books to read search.
I'm thinking that romance isn't really a great genre for a short story. What I like - the development of a relationship - just doesn't have room to grow in a short story. Those that do try to develop a whole relationship fall flat because so much gets skipped. There were a few stories in this book that I thought were okay. There were several that were dull. And there were quite a few that I just didn't like at all. I kept reading because since each is told by a different author, I wanted to give each one a separate chance, but I really should have given up as no story satisfied me and I just became frustrated during each one.
I really liked this book. Lots of quick little stories. A couple were a little weird, but the majority were lighthearted and interesting. A good read.
Most of the short stories were cute and funny, few blah ones but none were insightful.
Lots of fun stories and it gives you a great way to try new authors without having to "sit through" 300 pages if you are one of those people who once you start a book, you want to finish it.
Very good! Goes along with Girls Night In....
A great collection of chick lit short stories.
Coudn;t get into all of the stories. But the ones by some of the authors I like were good.
A great collection of short stories.
