Kate Walbert/OUR KIND

With my pedestrian tastes, I couldn't get past how the book was set up. I don't need my stories to be linear, but it would be nice if they actually related instead of just having the same characters. Walbert calls the book "A Novel in Stories," but I disagree. It is a group of stories about the same people, I'll give her that.

Plot: Well, there isn't really one, as each story is separate. But essentially, a group of ladies who lunch is growing older and remembering their youth through parties.

I did thouroughly enjoy the writing. Definitely no wasted words here.
