First off, if you haven’t read any “Stories in Pairs” before please be so kind as to go read my review of Two for the Heart in which I explain how “Stories in Pairs” works (and review two of her other works as well, so really, this is a three-for book review sort of post – and you’re welcome for that). It is a neat concept but it does need a bit of explanation.

Now that you’ve got an idea of the format I can tell you that after reading Two For the Road, I’m just as intrigued with these stories as I was with the earlier ones.
If the sign of a good story teller is to make you feel, “Whooo Boy,” then Garg is a good one! But in a way so subtle as to be surprising. The prose isn’t flowery, the stories aren’t fantastical, these are just people. People that could be you, or your neighbor, or the person on the bus. People told with such an honest simplicity that they can’t help but live on in your brain long after the story has been told.
Would I recommend it? Yes I would. This is a different story telling format but I think it’s working!
