The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing
By Melissa Bank
Thorndike Press, Large Print Edition (2000)
ISBN: 0-7862-2169-0
Genre: Fiction

Reviewed by Laura Hortz Stanton - September 8, 2006

Melissa Bank's The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing is a series of short stories that center around the events and relationships surrounding a single main character, Jane Rosenal. The reader follows Jane from adolescence, where she begins to learn about relationships through her older brother's romances, to her late twenties or early thirties, when she is experiencing love on her own.

Each of the stories is about Jane, but the writing in each is unique. Bank has written some of the stories in the first person, some in the third, which serves to refresh the reader with each new tale. The short stories are laced with humor, drama, and sentiment but never seem forced or improbable.

It is impossible to write extensively about this book because by saying too much about the stories and characters the perspective reader will not have the joy of discovering and unraveling the plots and characters for his or herself.

The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing is routed firmly in the chic lit style. The light stories, which can be quickly read, will be entertaining for anyone who enjoys the genre.
