Not so impressed with the stories themselves but vocabulary wise it was pretty good. A very clear progression in increasing language difficulty from the first story to the last. The last story was just a barrage of tough vocabulary and writing style (a writing style that perhaps went a bit over the top). Perhaps will need to read it again in a few months to enjoy the stories better.

Decided to level-up my French texts. Out with the simple "101 French Proverbs" / "101 French Idioms" and moving on to real literary pieces. Figured short stories would be a nice place to start. The introduction promises a good collection of famous French and Francophone authors. Excited to go through this book :)

Translating these stories represents the bulk of my preparation for the French proficiency exam. Let's hope it goes well...
