What I liked about this book was the different stories of first meeting. I can’t think of which story was my favorite (because all stories are my favorite!), but I really enjoyed the experience of listening to the variety of stories. I also liked that although they were love stories, they weren’t all lovey dovey and happy. I can’t remember the last anthology I read, much less listened to, so this was a good experience.
What I didn’t like about this book was that some of the stories weren’t as good and engaging as others. Some I didn’t want to end, but some were too long. I didn’t know where certain stories were going, and can’t remember the endings.
