Conclusion: OK if you need to have something on your phone for when you have to wait for someone or something, and certainly worth the 99 cents. But don’t expect greatness. However, do read the two Kangaroo novels; they really are amazingly good.
A few of the stories felt more like first chapters, or excerpts to longer pieces, but surprisingly, the vast majority of the 512-word stories stand well on their own.
I was originally reading one or two stories in my free time--in the morning before work, on the bus, etc--but they're so addicting I ended up reading entire sections in one go. I look forward to reading other things by Curtis Chen.
