it was amazing

This book is FANTASTIC. Maud, an 89-year-old lady who lives in a big apartment that everyone but herself believes she doesn't deserve, takes justice in her surprisingly capable hands. You might think that the worst an elderly lady could do would be putting a bit of arsenic in her guests' coffee... but you haven't met Maud yet. (This is probably for the better.) Hilarious, enchanting, and to use that awful word – unputdownable!

I only have one complaint – this book is way too short. It's a collection of short stories about Maud. Too short a collection and too short the stories! I fell in love and I want MOAR. It only took me a few hours to read the book, and now I will have to re-read it in order to check how Maud is doing – again. (Spoiler: she is definitely up to no good.)

If you're on the verge between buying and not buying it – do it, and you won't regret.
