was too much down for me to handle.That being said, I found the first story, Mercy , very moving Centered around a woman whose husband has recently unexpectedly passed away, the manifestations of her sorrow accurately echoed the same I d seen in a friend s mourning for the death of her marriage a couple of years ago The second story, from which the book s title is taken, is a sad yet hopeful tale of the constantly shifting moments of self awareness and perception of oneself through others eyes accurately or not Interesting but, because of the previously mentioned lowest point of their life aspect for one of the characters, hard to read.The third story, What It Takes , contained my favorite line of the whole thing A character speaking with a rare flash of teen girl confidence thinks But I was cool, too, cooler than him in some ways, if you factored in that I was a girl I loved that I found the fifth story, Friday Night , to be touching as well a brief moment relating a soon to be widow s denial of her situation cast aside to reconnect with her husband.The sixth and seventh stories The Someday Cat and You The Animal are actually the same story told from different people s viewpoints I had the strange experience of wondering what time period the story was set in when reading the first partit very much had an early 20th century Flannery O Connor feel to it, imo.until I read the second story and, because of the life experience of the person telling the tale, the setting became clear.I d be interested in reading from this author, if they wrote something upbeat but I can t say I d recommend this particular collection to anyone flag Like see review Jan 18, 2019 Stephanie Kerr rated it it was ok Rutting Season is a collection of short stories I received the book

difficulties of working in Child Protective Services The topics covered in the stories were, for the most part, interesting I think there was some real potential in the stories I would have liked to have read full novels from some of these stories However, I was rather disappointed in the characters I didn t find them relatable at all in the way that they reacted to the situations they were in Additionally, each story seemed to have the same main character They were different ages and genders, but they had the same thoughts and the same reactions to things This may have been the author putting herself into these situations and writing about how she would react That in and of itself is not a problem for any one story, but when you put nine of them back to back in one book it makes for a monotonousness read.I would recommend, if you read this book, don t read all the stories, at least not consecutively Break them up, and read something else in between, maybe something lighter Also, maybe skip the last story Animals altogether It was by far my least favorite and the least realistic flag Like see review Jan 31, 2019 Kathleen Gray rated it really liked it Short story fans know that sometimes the best way to read a collection is to dip in and out not to read the whole book at once That s true for this slim volume of seven stories Smith s characters are women or girls
