    Particularly liked the comic strips and the pieces by Junot Diaz and Jami Attenberg but fairly rough reading

    I read Love is a Four Letter Word out of nostalgia rather than actual interest in the stories This is a collection of broken heartrelationship stories both heterosexual and homosexual which are sometimes disturbing funny and heartbreaking If you're feeling bad about your relationships read some of these stories and I guarantee you'll feel good about even the worst choices

  4. Jill Jill says:

    I picked this up thinking it would be comforting to read about other people's misfortune in love It wasn't It was depressing And disgusting And kind of creepy The only reason why I stuck with it is because they were short stories so I only had to suffer in small doses Very ready to move on to something uplifting And sane

  5. Ellen Shull Ellen Shull says:

    There's nothing better than living vicariously and this book is just stuffed with life

  6. Penni Penni says:

    What a great book for those times you can only read in small doses Read it for the Junot Diaz essay alone Of course do not expect any Jane Austen happy endings

  7. Caleb Caleb says:

    a few stories stood out but overall it was pretty lackluster and disappointing bonus points for including gay and trans content though

  8. Cindy Cindy says:

    Since it's an anthology of 'break ups and bad relationships' there aren't any happy stories in here Still most of the stories were interesting but certainly not all Rather a uick read at least

    An uneven collection but with a great representation of authors
