well, this was different! the movie 'The Box' is based on a short story (I won't give any of it away) this book is just several short stories, some are good and some are not, depends on your taste in stories, for me it was 'ok'
I could not set this book down after I got it. Truly a page turner. I was completely submerged in this book from the first sentence. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. Normally I avoid books that that are just short stories because my brain refuses to separate them. I love it!
Anyone who likes or loves short stories-this is a must read. The stories goe fast and they end great. A very enjoyable way to spend a moment here and there between mundane daily tasks. These stories are sustantially readable with well developed characters, a neat little plot, and an ending that always goes KAPOW-one you didn't see coming.
