    • I think I must have read a library copy of this when it was more contemporary and forgotten I had, because while I know a few of the stories in here were familiar from other collections or magazines, I found that sooner or later, I recognized almost all of them. Though this has some standouts -- "Big Me" by Dan Chaon, "The Smoker" (which I recently rediscovered), "Servants of the Map" (Andrea Barrett, whom I'd forgotten how well I like -- overall it's a bit of a bleak collection. You expect thin [...]


    • This book was quite a good selection of short stories but, unfortunately, it reminded me why I don't read short stories very often--it's too hit and miss, even when talking about the work of just one author, and I'm finally getting into the story when it, to me, abruptly ends. My favorite story would have to be the winner of this collection, the Deep. It's very lyrical and poetic, haunting and intriguing. The preponderance of cancer stories were not the most enjoyable or even that insightful, wh [...]


    • I read this in college and I could almost give it 5 stars just for introducing me to George Saunders. "Pastoralia" is to this day one of my favorite pieces of writing. I recommend that story and the collection of short stories that has the same name to everyone. I was reading a lot of short stories at the time and the fact that the names of the short stories in this collection, ring a bell, must be a testament to something. I think this is a solid collection and you should be able to find some s [...]


    • I dipped into these stories after reading the first one "The Deep." It was a little too O'Henry-ish for me, so then I read the ones by authors I knew. These were fabulous and include stories by T.C. Boyle, Alice Munro, Joyce Carol Oates, Louise Erdrich, and WV author Pinckney Benedict. These have stuck with me and I know I will be thinking about the plots, characters, and symbolism for weeks.


    • Dreadful. The first few were alright, but after that they degenerated into simple shock-value and complete boredom. Somewhere along the way irony must have either lost its meaning, or taken on an entirely new one. I don't think O. Henry would have been impressed.


    • A few snoozers, but overall the stories in here were interesting. Not sure how necessary it is for this book to exist though, as pretty much all the stories I liked were by writers I already knew about because they frequently publish in outlets like The New Yorker.


    • I never thought I would read short stories, but I did enjoy these. I didn't read all of them, but the the few that I did read proved to me that I can pick up a book of short stories if I don't feel like delving into a novel.



    • Some of these "best of the year" collections can be a little boring, but this one was pretty great. Lots of good stories.


    • I'm not sure I'm on board with "The Deep" winning 1st prize. But oh, I love short fiction.Oh, and Joyce Carol Oates is officially the most depressing author ever.


    • stories I liked (i.e. stories that I read) were:the girl with the blackened eye, joyce carol oatesthe smoker, david schicklerthe mourning door, elizabeth graverpastoralia, george saunders
