My Opinion:
This is a fun set of short stories. The first, Homecoming, is a sad story with a happy ending. (3/5) Next, Haunted, was an awesome ghost story! I loved the twist, but I got to say, too much Elvis will not make anybody deaf! (4.5/5) Then, The Christening, I thought this would turn out a lot different than it did, and I'm pleasantly surprised. (5/5) Next, She Climbs A Winding Stair, had me until the very end, then I was left going, "huh?" (3/5) Then, Must See to Appreciate, was weird. That's how I'm left feeling. Lastly, The Three-Dollar Corpse, when I finished my thought was, "hmmm." It just wasn't my cup of tea. (1/5)


3/5


Recommend? If you like short stories, this set would be perfect at Halloween time.
