    If I was only voting for Low Men In Yellow Coats, I'd give this book a 10, but there were other parts to it that were kinda slow for me.

    Yeah, just reread Hearts in Atlantis (the story, not the book) as part of Hearts in suspension. I had no recollection of the story when I started the re-read, but then I started to remember some things. Over all I found it boring and pointless. Some of the other stories were ok, like Low men in yellow coats, but the other 2 stories I have no recollection on, other then I think they were connected to Hearts in Atlantis. However I recall not being impressed with them, so overall I had to give it a 2.

    3. Average. LMIYC was good. HIA was pretty good. Do not even remember the 3rd story.

    I think this may be only the first 5 I've given out. Maybe the second one...

    I've never really considered this to be a collection of short stories. I've always seen it as one long book since all the stories fit together chronologically and I really love it.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Strong collection with a cumulative effect. Not quite up there with Different Seasons for me, but strong nevertheless.
    So we've gone from "of course we didn't do that!" to "...ok, we did, but it had a really cool name!"
