I'm still not interested in reading her.
I'm with you, not appealing at all. I'm glad that a neglected genre like the short story was finally rewarded, but I'm sure there are better short story writers out there than Munro. I cannot stop thinking this is a Nobel Prize that should have ended in Antonio Tabucchi's persona a few years ago.

To me, Svetlana Alexievich would have been a better choice. She also belongs to a neglected genre (non-fiction) and her themes seems more relevant to depict contemporary human history.
