A vacation on the island of ex- Boyfriends By: Stacy bierlein

Published March 11, 2012 by Hollys~BookShelf



In three days we have played, cried, ran, fought, laughed, danced, and built fires with them all–every man we’ve ever wanted. We’re exhausted.

Two friends plan a visit to Nantucket, but find themselves on a different island completely, where the men they have loved are lined up on the beach in chronological order. A grieving mother and daughter encounter naked strangers in unexpected places en route to the Dordogne River. A restless New York artist travels to Madrid to find a European lover, only to fall for another persnickety New Yorker. Such quirks of fate are the hallmark of Stacy Bierlein’ s debut story collection. From that mysterious island in the Atlantic to the crowded highways of Los Angeles; from the Charles Bridge in Prague, to the temples of Luxor and the most remote regions of the Myanmar peninsula, Bierlein’s characters are women of dazzling ironies and introspections, always in motion and trusting in love–even when it remains out of reach.

My thoughts:

I won this book through A LibraryThing giveaway and was really excited to check it out. I received it in the mail yesterday and finished it this afternoon.

This Book contains a collection of stories from different women about their encounters with their lovers,exs, one night stands.

I really enjoyed this book, I think the author did a great job. From the start it pulls you in and keeps you interested. The author does a very good job with description. The flow of The stories was great, I never lost my interest.I think this could be a book I would read a second time.

so, overall I would recommend this for a read.  I gave it a 4 out of 5 : )
