    1. This book was given to me, for free, through First Reads.When I first read the book description I was expecting ordinary, everyday short stories, and I was really pleased when I found out that they were immersed with science fiction, futuristic and fantastic aspects I have different opinions regarding the 4 stories SPOILERS AHEAD.The one I liked the least was definitely the fist one To the Edges I couldn t connect to the main character at all, and she would just annoy me most of the time The thi [...]

    2. I was really excited by this book as I ve enjoyed other anthologies by Crossed Genres but I ended up really struggling with this one These four novellas featured older women, but I didn t find the fact that they were older particularly relevant to the stories, except maybe the last one Marissa James s The Second Wife In most cases, the protagonist s age was irrelevant to the story In three of the four stories, I found myself bobbing in and out of the story because there wasn t enough contextual [...]

    3. I enjoyed all of the novellas quite a lot while I liked some than others, overall it was a very interesting and engaging collection Although The Second Wife was my least favourite, it did have an interesting and well throughout plot Unfortunately, it didn t leave me with the feeling of me wanting to know about the setting and history behind the society it was set in When I was done the story, I didn t have that feeling of wanting and compared to the others in the collection, it just didn t ha [...]

    4. I received this book through First Reads.As the title of the book suggest, all the four novellas does deal with diverse issues related to older women in futuristic and magical way, written by women authors.I liked To the Edges specially the descriptive futuristic scenarios and technology used but found story taking a bit predictable route The end of story being open ended also adds a nice touch The next story, Copper has a bizarre story line about mystery of stolen uterus,having a lot of interes [...]

    5. I bought this ebook because I wanted to read stories about older women I wanted stories that deal with the aging process and the way society treats older women For the most part, I didn t get that It isn t enough to tell me your character is older unless you show me, too The stand out story, for me, was This Other World It was very much about aging and changing, and the ways our bodies and minds do both Like most things published by Crossed Genres, the stories are populated by a variety of diver [...]

    6. If you don t have this book on your shelves then go out and find a copy This collection of novellas is addictive, the writing is fantastic, and I was disappointed each time the story ended, as I wanted to know what happened next.The stories were varied in their form, their location, and their characters They were so good that I want to go and find other work by all the authors included and read of their stuff.Really I can t recommend this .

    7. The anthology is really strong as a whole There re a couple of typos and formatting issues here and there though.
