I just finished reading another book by Daris Howard, again I did not think I would finish this book so quickly but, much to my surprise the book was a quick read that I did not want to put down. I usually don’t read short stories and when I finish a book I wait till the next day to start a new one so I don’t get the stories mixed up in my head. With these stories I did not have that problem because it was reading about one person in different situations in life.
I have been pleasantly surprised about how much I have enjoyed these stories and the writing of Daris Howard. His little adventures in Life seem so fun and amusing. From his run in with the cute Skunk who was too smart and became a pesky intruder. To the story of his kids not wanting to weed their garden and his plan of placing store bought watermelons in the garden backfiring on him. Each story had a fun or emotional twist to it, making me laugh or bringing a few tears to my eyes. This is a great book to have around for those who have but a few moments to stop and read a short story, or for anyone who wants a good real story!
