    I loved this little book! Because I'm a fan of Soyon Im (I follow her blogs and am a fellow pet societyaholic) I was excited to read more of her work. I absolutely love her writing style and humor, her short story did not fall short of my expectations. The charcaters in 'Love.com' are realistic and easy to identify with. The protagonist is a normal married woman,a mother, who lives a normal life- no over the top career, or looks or exaggerated hectic daily life that leaves you spinning. Just a normal person, like me and you. Even the adventure that she endures is normal, something that has probably happened to many people! Yes, it's normal but not boring, those are two very different meanings. We live her life for a couple of days and empathize with her, become involved in her adventure and truly care about the outcome. More importantly, it leaves you pondering your own relationships...past or present. The other 2 stories were equally as good. You become involved in a totally...

I hope there is plenty more to come from these two talented authors! *5 stars*!< Less

    It's an exciting time to be an author these days, especially if you're internet savvy. And if you are willing to take that leap, you can self-publish works that might be otherwise difficult to get into print. I enjoy short stories, but I don't remember the last time I read one before today. I used to subscribe to piles of magazines and read the stories in the New Yorker, or even Playboy (mee???). I had to get more frugal with retirement, and my magazine reading has become mostly limited whatever might be in the doctors' office. But today, this fun little book arrived, and it was perfect for the end of a hectic day. Soyon Im explores the wonder of internet relationships in "Love.com." Her prose gives me the light and airy feeling of a walk through lotus petals, with the side-jab humor of a Seoul thing. The story takes us through the ups and downs of losing your heart in instant messaging. It was easy to identify with her character Sunghee. David Massengill completes the book...

And even though we know where the story is going, it still gave me the creeps along the way. And with "No Mas, Mi Amor, he shows his talent for developing a personality conflict within a short conversation. I loved it. I give it four stars.< Less
