Opportunity | Charlotte Grimshaw

 I'm not too sure about this one. It's a collection of short stories from a New Zealand author. There is plenty of local flavor in the stories but I'm not sure that's enough.
They are engaging enough but I feel frustrated that they are only short glimpses of the characters. I keep comparing it in my mind to Tim Winton's book of short stories, The Turning, which somehow is a more satisfying read.

I've managed to read two other books in between trying to finish this one off, not a good sign.
