    Short but amusing.

    Too bad there weren't a few more stories in here. It was amusing, and well written.

    You probably shouldn't read this.

    It is about 12 pages long and I regret not listening to the people before me who said to not even read it. Like they said, these are pretty much dead-end stories that are a waste of time.

    Good thing it was free. Would be a great book if the author took

    Good thing it was free. Would be a great book if the author took the vignettes of the people he writes about and wove them into a story.

    Nothing special

    It was something to read to pass the time. Kinda like a store circular. Although I do get excited reading a circular because of the sales. I didn't hate it, but there nothing I absolutely loved about it.

    Just Not Enough ....

    This "book" is way too short, just a few minutes of reading; but I'd sure like to hear more about it. Where's the original Tales if this is More Tales????

    Don't Bother...

    I can't say that this is the worst piece of fiction I've ever read, but it certainly isn't the best.

    This short piece of fiction is simply some quick sketches of potentially interesting people interacting with concierges. While I always try to give each work a fair shake, there are multiple problems with this short prose. First, there's no conflict at all, which lends to boring writing. Second, these sections are just too short to appreciate any of the people within them.

    This piece would be better suited to use as four writing prompts to expand and develop.

    I'm definitely not saying you shouldn't read this, but just be aware what you're getting.
