I'm going to give this book 5 stars. There were a couple of stories that might have gotten "only" 4 stars on their own, but they're outnumbered. All of these stories involve odd situations, unique characters, and an ending that takes a bit of a twist. And sometimes that twist runs right out through left field and into the Twilight Zone. A great way to pass some time!

As usual, Barnaby Wilde offers up a great selection of stories with unique perspectives, humor, and more than the occasional twist. Well worth the read!

I just finished book four and had to write a review. These stories are very unique and well written. You will keep coming back for more!

These are not the first stories I've read by Barnaby Wilde. They will not be the last. Each one has been a pleasure. Once I began this collection I did not want to stop. Highly enjoyable. Highly recommended.

These good-natured, discursive stories are sometimes a little slow to get going, but contain some really inventive ideas. I especially enjoyed "Benny" and "Onwards and Upwards."
