Very entertaining short-short stories-good for reading in those few minutes when you don't have much time to read
Another entry into the 100 little stories series.
This one was not the best one. Many of the stories suffered from editor fatigue or maybe editing intern fatigue. Most of the stories didn't allow the short-story format to shine. Roughly 10 of the stories made the foray into this anthology worthwhile, though not exactly satisfying. Mystery, the most popular genre after romance, becomes formulaic at the twitch of a corpse's finger. If you are a student of short-stories, or of writing, you may find this book an interesting exercise to figure out who may have started the formula for a given style of story (Christie, Doyle, Chandler, etc), or perhaps how to create a more satisfying version of the story that was presented. Either way, enjoy!
Stories are short and delightfully fun to pick up for a quick reading fix. A great mix of authors and styles.
