      I used to do A-Level English and during that course I had to study some short stories by Raymond Carvers. I knew nothing about Carver or his stories. I was handed the story ‘Neighbors’. It wasn’t a masterpiece by any means but it was stylishly written and caught my interest. As our English teacher gave us more and more stories I became more interested. When the course was over and it came to my holidays I picked up this book because I had already liked what I read from Carver and I wanted more. The collection of short stories in this book are a strange mixed bunch. Some are just your average read, but most are outstanding! Carver manages to catch ones interest, keep it, and hold it till you’ve finished reading. Some of the stories that stand out include ‘What Do You Do in San Francisco’, ‘Why, Honey?’ (Not something I suggest reading before you go to sleep!). And of course the title story ‘Will You Please Be Quiet, Please’, which has its place as one of the best stories I’ve read. They’re called short stories so they aren’t designed to take up the whole of your time. But if you do strangely find yourself with a bit of spare time and you don’t know what to do with it, then don’t laze in front of the TV. Pick up this book (or any of Carver’s books) and read a short story… or two! By the way, I failed A-Level English ;-)
