Re: Best of the Bestiary (e-book)

Marvelous collection of stories.

Most notably - "<strong>Maybe it was me</strong>" (me look back in memory), "<strong>Atrophy</strong>", "<strong>It was a bright cold day in April</strong>", "<strong>the devil and the sea</strong>", "<strong>Saw no evil</strong>" (made me look back at myself), "<strong>White Powder</strong>", "<strong>kindness from strangers</strong>" (made me want to start traveling far and soon), and "<strong>the story of Martin Emundo</strong>".

A special mention needs to be made about "<strong>Suicide</strong>" written by... (let me get his name right)... a <strong>Hari Ravikumar</strong>. Seeing as how it was a period piece, I tried to check the literature for factual errors. There was none. It give it a 5/5 for being error free on that front. It also give it 5/5 for ability to give life to its characters, who seem 2 dimensional and instinctive. And I give it a 5/5 for some humour it was able to pack in barely 4 pages. But the story is abrupt at the end and so I give it 0/5 and therefore, a 0 overall.
