I've only finished 2 of the 7. Some fun short stories, but not George's best in my opinion. Not quicky reads either, but definately worth the read.
I thought Portent could have been much more about the second sight than it was, but it was a great short story. The Cruel Painter was a lot of fun.
Very tame by todays standards. He grovels alot and gets nothing to show for it. Not as good as the number of downloads would suggest. It's fairly well writen, but lacking in content I think.
If you like to explore the relationship of how one becomes a slave (without sex) this is for you.
A very interesting what if book. What if you could become the most beautiful woman in the world? How would that affect your friends? How would that affect your life? How would all those changes affect you?
The author follows a country bumpkin that comes to the city to go to college. She is very bright and the teacher's pet. The Teacher finds a way to make people more beautiful and offers it to this girl....
A book that explores all these angles. It's well written, if a bit slow in patches, but very very interesting!
A great collection!
If you like Fairy Tales, definately for you!
Also quick easy reads for waiting in line at the bank or wherever.
