Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

An interesting love story.Though in the beginning the plot seems a little bit boring,it becomes interesting by the change in views of Darcy and Elizebeth.The most interesting about the book is that it gives a well collection of various natures found in humans.

Murder Rides High

by Leonard Finley Hilts

[From Mammoth Detective, September 1946]

Tight little short story of murder on a US Navy flight base. A quick read with an aerial dog-fight thrown in for good measure

Two Timer

by Fredric Brown

Two very short stories 400 words or so each taken from Galaxy Science Fiction, February 1954. Despite their brevity, they both manage to set up their twists perfectly.

Nine Short Stories

by Rex Stout

I agree with the previous reviewer who likened these stories to those of O Henry. All nine are wry, humorous and, more often than not, have an enjoyable reversal at or near the end. Perfect short stories, in other words.

[Side note: there are some minor transcription errors throughout, no doubt from the OCR process, but these do not affect comprehension or enjoyment.]
