THESE WERE FUN SHORT STORIES – NONE TOOK MORE THAN 30 MINUTES TO READ – A GOOD READ WHILE WORKING OUT ON THE TREADMILL! IT WAS NICE TO BE ABLE TO PUT THE BOOK DOWN BETWEEN STORIES AND READ ANOTHER BOOK WITHOUT LOSING THE PLOT OR MOMENTUM. I’M NOT USUALLY A FAN OF SHORT STORIES BUT THESE WORKED WELL FOR ME…
