I received a KINDLE version of this short book from the author through his giveaway on LibraryThing.com and the following is my honest opinion. Given the length of this endeavor I read this twice as I ate my breakfast.

As a child of the 1950’s in school I can remember the teacher having her class read short stories my O’Henry.

O’Henry was the pen name of William Sydney Porter who was an American writer who became known for writing short stories similar to the ones in this book. And like this author, Mr. Akopyan, the few short stories he has included in this collection, are ones which contain good characterization, wit, and the obligatory surprise ending.

I wish the author would have included several more short stories here; still this is not distracting me from giving his endeavor here 5 STARS.
