Having attended a live reading and knowing the author personally, I know for sure I will never let Antoinette watch my children. Good thing I don't have any.

This collection of 10 tales is perfect for some light reading while on the bus, train, passenger car, pontoon, frigate, steamer, 18-wheeler, x-wing, y-wing, tardis or bar stool. Worth every penny and more.

Of the 10 stories in this book, only one ("Will Fluffy Live Forever?") lived up to the title as the kind of story you use for the express purpose of traumatizing the little poo-maggots. Of the remainder, they show an admirable amount of hatred towards children but none of innocent cruelty that causes kids to randomly wake up screaming and run to their parents bed.

That said, it was well worth 99 cents, and stories like "Kevin's First and last Trip to the Zoo" may not increase bedwetting or therapy bills but are fun to read aloud with weary parents, grade school teachers and other people with a grudge against the young.

The transfer to Kindle wasn't proofread very well. There are font changes in the middle of stories and the stories don't break onto new pages. There are also some transfer errors (lower case L showing as a one, for example) that are annoying.

The stories themselves are decent. They have some adult content, so don't plan on reading them to your kids. Mid to late teens should be fine with them and will probably enjoy them.

If you havent read any of Roald Dahl's adult stories, you will love this! The stories are funny and strange and quite unexpected. Unfortunately, since I have read the aforementioned books, I kind of knew where it was going after the first story.

If you want something that is quick to read and quirky, go for this. Make sure no-one is reading over your shoulder :)

On the Kindle side, it is distracting that the font changes half way thorugh the book. Disappointing.

Three stars overall because it was fun but I wont read it again, it just didnt quite work for me enough to rate it higher.

I enjoyed these ten, dark, twisted tales by fledgling author Antoinette Bergin. I hope to see more installments in the future.

If you happen to have an extra buck lying around you should buy this book. It's short but the stories are great. I didn't expect much when I purchased this book, it definitely exceeded my expectations.

I came across this while looking for children's books for my niece. I knew it wasn't for her, but I got it right away. It's a little short, but it's funny in a twisted way. I recommended it to my friends and I know a couple of them are already enjoying it as well.

For the price the book is worth it. It is full of short stories that are perfect to read between stops on the bus. As an added bonus the stories are usually pretty funny.
