My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Thoroughly enjoyed all of the stories in this essential collection for fans of the Lunar Chronicles. It was nice reading some background stories that fleshed out many of the characters we have all come to love -- yeah more Carswell! Also would be good for those who have never read the series for a good introduction into this brilliantly developed world full of rich characters and snappy witty dialogue. Only downside is there wasn't enough Kenny, I really think Ms Meyer will have to write a story all about him. The wedding story was a tad too sweet for this cynical old lady, but I am pretty sure I would have cried when I was the target age for these stories. Also now extremely intrigued to pick up Heartless when it finally comes out in the Fall. The little excerpt from the book at the end of this collection has made me kick myself for not lining up in that huge lineup for the ARC of it at BEA.
