A Collection of Mediocre Stories
on April 29, 2012
I am not sure about the high number and quality of reviews for this book. Is this yet another case of "reviewer bias" in which an otherwise forgettable book is propped up by friends of the author to make the product seem better than it is?
The stories in this book are simple and consistently mediocre. There is no great story telling or writing here. The book contains several grammatical errors and misspellings, and the stories themselves suffer from a lack of oversight.
This book is a solid three stars. Re-shaping and editing some of the stories could perhaps bring it up to a four.
Usually I spend a little time going through each story to talk about the qualities of each, but in this case the exercise would be superfluous. There are several books and compilations out there to read. My recommendation is move past this and check out one of the others. See my other reviews accordingly.
