These stories are short, snappy, and completely engaging. The thing that struck me the most about them is the many different shifts in tone. One story is told by a female, rural veterinarian; and another by a male, army cadet. A pregnant woman tells her tale, as does a guy who has the chance to meet up with his long-lost love. Every one of them is convincing. My only complaint is now I’ve read all Gavalda has published. I want more.
