    One thought on “Misery Bay: And Other Stories from Michigan's Upper Peninsula”

    1. This was one of the worst collections of short stories I have ever had the displeasure of reading. I recently moved to the Western side of the Upper Peninsula from Northern Wisconsin, and I for the life of me cannot fathom how the "Yooper" stereotype is anything to be proud of. This book is an insult to every resident of the UP. I can't believe that anyone would waste there time writing such drivel.

    2. This was a fantastic book. Especially if you are at all related to or familiar with the people in the UP. I felt like I was listening to coversations (tall tales) told by my Uncles and mother from their life in the UP. I can even place most of the stories. It was like coming home!

    3. Very charming collection of short stories focused on Finns in the U. P. There is a nice variety of characters and subject matter, and I really enjoyed them as they reminded me of many of my relatives and friends from the U.P.
