    I simply adored each story … but grew to avoid this collection the more I read. Carver has a way of tearing down each person, removing any sense of security and hope. Reading it once is fascinating. Twice and you begin to see what he’s getting at. Three times and the pattern sets in. And then story after story? Ugh. I found myself returning to this collection less and less. It’s all too hopeless. Too insecure. Too depressing to the human condition.
