Aww? Doesn't she realise...

...that everyone's supposed to love my book without reserve?
Although there are some fantastic pieces here[...]I think the collection peaks with "Singing My Sister Down", and all too often I got the impression that Lanagan was more interested in coming up with new customs with which to confront her characters than she was with telling a story.
Never mind, Abigail Nussbaum has been very supportive of 'Sister', and likes a few of the others.

Hi, I am a Freshman at Fredericksburg Academy and one of the short stories that we needed to read was "Singing My Sister Down" now a lot of people in my class didn't particularly care for this story. I was one of these people, but then I got to thinking that it isn't the story or how it is written that we don't like, we just don't like the fact that Ik had to die in such weird conditions even if she did kill her husband. I thought that the idea was weird but the actual writing was very good. My school blog is call www.fablogs.org/cnfa16 if you would like to visit it that would be awesome. :)
