Mechanics of Falling Blog Tour

The Mechanics of Falling and Other Stories, by Catherine Brady, is one of those books that falls prey to my finicky reading habits. Unfortunately, it's the first book I've been unable to finish that's also touring through my site. That's not to say that it isn't a good choice, but it's a collection that just didn't tickle my fancy particularly. If I were to try to pinpoint the problem, I would say that each story is slow to start and didn't reel me in the way a Lauren Groff or Tricia Dower story might. However, I can't help but wonder--if I had more time on my hands or more ummphf to read if I would've liked it better!
Therefore, I urge you to visit any one of the other tour stops for The Mechanics of Falling and decide for yourself if you'd like to give it a try. I'm keeping my copy around for a time when I'm less stressed and craving short stories in hopes that I can make more headway.
