Anyone who knows my reviews or my reading habits will know that I hate short stories. I picked this book up when I was clearing my shelves in the study to redecorate and thought I would give it a try. I am trying to clear out some books to donate to a charity booksale at my husbands work and I thought this would be a quick read, mainly as I foresaw myself giving up after a couple of the tales.
At last a collection of short stories that were enjoyable. Each of them were complete stories and did not leave me frustrated by lack of description or ending (like most other short stories I have read). Ok they are slightly old fashioned, sexist! and happily ever after but still managed to be enjoyable.
Perfect for reading in a situation where you don't have a lot of time or concentration but still want to grab a quick read. 5 out of 5.
