I really enjoyed this book. The stories are short, but interesting with some fascinating characters. I bought 2 books authored by Jeremy and they certainly won't be my last. Highly recommendable for a rainy day or even a day on the beach.
Another nice book to read by this author. I liked the settings of the stories and got emotionally attached to some of the characters. What happened to some characters, I can easily relate to. I read this book twice.
Very interesting and I will recommend it to my friends too !
