Bright Shiny Morning was loaned to me by a friend with good taste. The only reason I read it was because she told me to… I am glad I did.
I tend to be one who it much more interested in story and plot than writing style. I love books, I love to read… but what I really, really love is a good story. This isn’t that. At least, not really.
This is a well written collection of snapshots of life in the greater Los Angeles area. Some of them are heartwarming. Most of them are depressing. (LA is nothing if not the City of Broken Dreams) All of them are interesting.
Just read it. Or, you know, don’t.
