Lives of Girls and Women

The Lives of Girls and WomenI finished Alice Munro's Lives of Girls and Women today.

I can't say that I really liked it. I don't think that I ever really made a connection with Del. Truth be told for about half the book I probably couldn't even have told you her name.

Basically I just went through it reading because I wanted to be at the end. There were moments where I was interested but mostly I was just going through the motions.

I guess I just don't get what makes this a "great" book.

Or maybe I just don't really like the supposed greats of Canadian womens' fiction.
