MOTIVATION for READING: Length. It was short!
WHAT’s it ABOUT: This is a story collection and let me share the warning:
HIGH RISK OF TOXIC HUMOUR AND SEVERED LIMBS!
I couldn’t resist.
WHAT’s GOOD: These are fun. and short. The character names were great. (Like Rhapsody Gershwin.)
What’s NOT so good: I’m not sure how suspenseful I would rate these but they definitely have dark humor.
FINAL THOUGHTS: My favorite was the Green Acres story that was set in a nursing home (and had an adorable dog as foil.)
RATING: Three slices of pie.
Vocabulary: Grotty – unpleasant and of poor quality. (not in any way meant to describe these stories; only a word IN the stories that I did not know.)
