I'm giving this 3.5 stars because I liked it less than The Instructions (which I gave 4 stars), but I'm rounding it up to 4 stars because it's better than some of the short story collections from other authors that I've read and reviewed previously, and I gave those 3 stars.
I found most of these stories very entertaining, and intriguing, and strange (rewardingly so), but others just didn't do anything for me, especially The Extra Mile
, the collage of mini-stories in the middle, and How To Play The Guy
Basically, with a voice like Levin's, I think I just prefer him in the longer format. Of course, this is based on a whopping sample set of two, one book of each type, and who knows what the future holds. Hopefully, it holds a novel next, though.
