I enjoyed these stories and the reader. The English Colonialism point of view got irritating, but nonetheless, it remained interesting.

Good book

(5 stars)

This is an unusual book. The first section of 11 chapters is one story, and the rest are short stories, but they are all exciting and end well. I really enjoyed the book. The readers are also excellent. Mike reads the majority of the chapters and is a wonderful reader; his voice is well-modulated and expressive. All in all a great book. Enjoy!
