Interesting


(3 stars)

This was an interesting series of sorry stories that may or may not include previous story characters. This made it difficult to follow sometimes. The author had a dry wit at times that would have you laughing if you were paying attention. There were several stories with surprising or shocking twists. The readers voice improves as the book goes on.
