Exceeded Expectations

Any additional comments?

I am not usually a short story collection fan, but this anthology was better than I was expecting. I think the stories were well-selected and tended to be more along the lines of the novels that I enjoy (19th and early 20th century). It was my first introduction to D.H. Lawrence which I enjoyed. I ended up liking the narrator more that I expected as well. I am glad that I chose this title and if you are looking for something thought provoking but with multiple story lines, this is a good option.
