    What a terrific and witty collection of stories by mostlywell known writers They are thinly linked by a death andor murder but are not murder or detective genre More typically they appear to be selected for their wonderful use of language and absurd or gripping plot Thoroughly entertaining and good for many laughs out loud If you co habitate you will be overwhelmingly tempted to read bits aloud You could do much worse

    Well I didn't uite make it through this book It happened somewhere around story # 4 or 5 I realized I was finding ways to avoid reading this When I found I preferred hand washing dishes and polishing furniture to sitting down with this book I understood that I just wasn't that into it There were a lot of authors' names that I recognized but I'm thinking now that I must have remembered them from a stuffy English class textbook These were the kinds of stories that begin seem to be going somewhere but abruptly end on the next page leaving me wondering how I missed the point Similar to looking at an odd piece of art and wondering what the motivation was only these tales didn't piue my interest even to that point But to be fair I didn't even read half of them Maybe the better stories were toward the end but I doubt it

  4. Noelle Noelle says:

    Completely entertaining Some stories are fun some intensely serious I didn't necessarily enjoy every story I don't have an affinity for some of these authors eg Cheever Trollope Faulkner but all of the stories were well chosen for this anthology My favorites were 1 The Fat Man by Isak Dinesen the most affecting2 The Macbeth Murder Mystery by James Thurber the funniest of course3 The Widow and the Parrot A True Story by Virginia Woolf the happiest most satisfying ending and a surprise since Woolf normally makes my eye twitch4 In Vino Veritas by A A Milne excellent surprise ending#ReadICT category 8 Essay or short story collection

  5. Bruce Bruce says:

    Pretty interesting Light reading but still murder mysteries

  6. Cindy Cindy says:

    Very impressive collection of stories My favorite is the one by James Thurber 'The Macbeth Murder Mystery' I also enjoyed the ones by Rudyard Kipling W S Gilbert and A A Milne What was interesting about this collection was that none of the stories were written by people considered mystery writers It just shows that everyone loves a good crimeGreat collection for mystery lovers those who love short stories and those who love good writing

  7. Kristen Kristen says:

    A solid anthology Some of the stories were fantastic and others were uite dull My favorites were the selections by James Thurber and Muriel Spark My least favorites were the offerings by Rudyard Kipling and William Faulkner

  8. Anne Anne says:

    Excellent middle of the night book by writers you wouldn't link to mystery and suspense

  9. Joanne Joanne says:

    My favorite story was The Widow And The Parrot but I liked the whole anthology

  10. Nadine Nadine says:

    The stories were boring and didn't really have a point
