    1. There are people, he thought, who are easy to love. And that is that.wait, it's not what you think!! sure, it looks like monsterporn, but it isn't! this is monsterlove, with all sorts of romantic emotions and tenderness!this tor short is charming and cute and full of animals. it's about the recently widowed agnes sorensen, who truly loved her husband of thirty years, but had always felt unfulfilled by her marriage.It was as though her soul was hibernating. even as a young girl she was drawn to n [...]


    2. A Tor originally published short story, Mrs. Sorensen and the Sasquatch is a joy to read.With simplicity and charm, blending ecumenical and druidic themes and images, author Kelly Barnhill has created a gem.After old, quiet and unobtrusive Mr. Sorensen dies, his pretty widow has the attention of all the men in the town, and a Sasquatch.Set amidst a casserole dish small town and with a coven of church lady crones, and with a paunchy but inspired parish priest, Barnhill creates a captivating tale [...]


    3. Agnes Sorensen was happy, and Agnes Sorensen was alive. So be it.Mrs. Sorensen has always had a way with animals and this proves to be a comfort after the death of her beloved husband.Some gossipy church ladies are mocked in this tale, which kind of made my day. The moral is be kind to critters and make a joyful noise. This is a sweet story, but otherwise, there's not much to it.


    4. #7 short story read for this month. 3.5 stars.Intolerance (those 3 meddling women) and lots of love in this story (Mrs. Sorenson & co). The Sasquatch was a little weird. My favourite part in this story:"Agnes-""I thought I was anonymous.""And you are. All my confessionals are Agnes."


    5. This was a sweet, lyrical, lovely little read.And the moral of the story, to me anyway: love is love is love. It is precious when it appears in any of its myriad forms.


    6. A short "book" deserves a short review. Snow White grows up and is a true evangelist, encouraging all her friends to attend church. (Come to think of it, many of the Disney princesses are able to talk to animals--there's Ariel and the crab and flounder and Cinderella and the mice too. Poor Belle only talks to candlesticks and dressers.)


    7. This was an adorable story. I may be slightly biased, since I am a nature-lover and Barnhill's descriptions of nature in this short story/novelette were gorgeous.Agnes, in her knee socks and mary janes, in her A-line dresses that her mother had made from old curtains and her pigtails pale as stars, simply had an affinity for animals. In the old barn in their backyard, she housed the creatures that she had found, as well as those that had traveled long distances just to be near her. A hedgehog wi [...]



    8. A delightful story of love, life, and the overthrow of those nasty little fusspots who don't approve of either. Ideal for fans of My Boyfriend is a Bear, and vice versa.


    9. I read this because I had recently read The Girl Who Drank the Moon and The Witch's Boy so I thought I might like another Kelly Barnhill story. This is a much shorter story so it is considerably less complex. I plan to read this aloud to 4th graders as a way of introducing them to this author and then suggesting that they check out her other full-length novels. This story has a little more silliness but I think students will enjoy that.


    10. Charming and tender, this is a story of unconventional love in a natural setting. Family is defined by more than blood ties and spirituality isn't just a religious expression limited to humans. Big concepts for such a whimsical story!



    11. Another Tor short storyThis was a nice story, and I quite enjoyed the way it looked at loss and grief and community. I especially liked the Father, he was so decent and good and accepting.


    12. An interesting standalone short story that calls into question if nature has a communal place in religion. Particularly in the course of love, and how it stirs up a village's structure here.


    13. Father Laurence has been asked to speak to Mrs Sorensen. She had always been an unusual girl with an affinity for animals. That all stopped when she got married and her husband was allergic. But he died recently… and she’s back to her old self, much to the local men’s interest and the local women’s gossip. She is a very pretty widow.He gave a quick glance up and down the quiet street to reassure himself that he remained unobserved. The last thing he needed was to have the Parish Council [...]


    14. I think Barnhill makes it to being one of my top authors. This is so new and old mixed in the best way. This time the newness is on the way the people are perceived (not in a negative way but just the modernness of individuality and openness) with the old being the idea of a Sasquatch and the fairy tale tropes.




    15. This was a sweet, unconventional love story, between a woman and a sasquatch.To be fair, the short also takes a look at small town mentality, the spirituality of humans vs the perception that animals are lacking in spirituality, and the awkwardness of sasquatches not wearing pants. I'm pretty sure that the woman/sasquatch pairing is the big draw, though.I'm guessing that sasquatch was chosen as the term for the Wild Man, because the story would just be completely ridiculous if it were called "Mr [...]


    16. Sweet, whimsical monsterlove! This is the story I shall now think of any time I hear All Creatures of Our God and King.Here is a paragraph I love (and it's as close to monsterporn as this little tale comes):The Sasquatch sometimes wore Mr. Sorensen’s old seed hat and boots (he had cut out holes for his large, flexible toes), and sometimes wore the dead man’s scarf. But never his pants. Or some kind of shorts. Or, dear god, at least some swimming trunks. The Sasquatch was in possession, thank [...]


    17. If you liked this book, you might also enjoy:✱ "How Old Holly Came To Be" by Patrick Rothfuss from the Unfettered anthology.


    18. Very sweet and fluffy and not much more, but it's an enjoyable read for what it is. Mrs. Sorensen falls in love with a Sasquatch. The town is aghast because small towns like their outrage. Everything is filled with a sense of magic and wonder and strangeness.


    19. Took a shot on a new author. However, this story contained a level of whimsy that was beyond my personal taste. (I feel as if the preceding sentence is the most uptight thing that I have ever written. Regardless, it was my reaction.)


    20. A bizarre little story but very well-written and lovely to read. Very much enjoyed it - looking forward to reading Barnhill's long fiction in the future.




    21. Strange story of a female Dr Doolittle - a very beautiful one choosing a Sasquatch as a companion. Weird but great writing.
