** spoiler alert ** Gonna have to write a longer review for this one.
I've loved every single one of the books that Alexander McCall Smith has written so far, so really enjoyed finding this on the shelf in oxfam for 50p.

But I hated it, the back said short stories in the style of Roald Dahl which I do like, but as I said I hated this.

I found the stories pointless, I kept waiting for the twist, or maybe it was there and I didn't get it.

Stories such as Nice Little date that dealt with a man hiring what he thoguht was a 14 year old girl for the night? That's paedophilia, I know he didn't actually sleep withthe child, but do I want to read a story thinking he might?

I tried each of the stories hoping for more enjoyable reading and apart from Far North I was disappointed.
