My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed every story of this little collection.
Each story is compact in its writing and, I felt, exactly the right length to convey its own message.

There is always a twist in the tale or a clever punchline. The endings are mostly surprises. That’s good!

Some of the stories are dark. Some are humourous.

I particularly liked the slight, but understandable kinkiness of ‘Book Lovers.’ The ending made me chuckle.

‘Operation Flora’ is a Christmas tale with a difference. There is a tiny niggle of regret but the battered fairy comes out on top.

The signature story, ‘A Walk in the Woods,’ is good, but I preferred ‘A Walk in the Park,’ which was blatantly heading for a predictable reunion, but then there was a beautiful twist at the end.

The most hilarious story, again with a nice twist, is ‘The Secret Diary of Marvin Martin aged 14½’.

Its doesn’t take long to read this book and I guarantee that you will be delighted.
