I like a lot of what I have read by Munro. However, there is a lot of truth in what this reviewer points out about the various formulae she uses.

I thought The View from Castle Rock was very well done and different from the other stuff I'd read by her.

Overall pleased, but part of that pleasure is an egotistical vindication (while knowing it's all nonsense anyway).

I think The View from Castle Rock is really outstanding. I got it onto the English text list for final year students here in Victoria against opposition from other panel members who said it was too difficult, and I feel really chuffed about that. I hope the Nobel encourages more schools to select it.
