I found these stories rather dull. Most of them were from the days when the big name telling the story was a nobody. When something odd happens to a nobody, how interesting is that? I expected something much more entertaining and as I turned the pages I kept hoping the next story would be great. Never happened. I'm not even sure this thing was good for a smile, much less a laugh. Don't waste your money.
