Luc Reid's stories are often laugh out loud funny, but also thoughtful. Not to mention plentiful. You would think 172 stories would get old after a while, but they never do. A lot of fun, this book, and a steal at the price. Having finished it, I hope the next one is coming out soon, and this time it's 272 stories.

I'm still working my way through this collection of delightful narrative snacks, saving them for small moments here and there, but I figure my enjoyment isn't going to flag, even if it does take me a while to finish, so I'm rating it now. Great stuff. Hits exceed the misses by a very large margin.
