    Recommended if you like a short story. Tragedy with a smile.

    This is a lighthearted, creative and well constructed story about two pensioners. Both divorced. One happy, the other sad. They need money to start a new life, so they rob the robber. Life gets even more complicated when they start dating two new girlfriends. A tragedy, but 100% with a smile. I love these men.

    Nice story, bad spelling

    This is an entertaining short story with a nice 'some like it hot' intrige. It is from a Dutch writer. Regrettably the translation is bad.

    Lousy book.

    Short story that had horrible spelling and used words that didn't go to the story. I hope noone proof read it. The story was along the same lines as a plot that has basically been used a million times.
