Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I enjoyed these stories I found these stories enjoyable though they didn't involve me emotionally as much as I would've liked. Some have World War II connections that I found interesting. The Day Time Stood Still is my favourite story. The most admirable character in my opinion is the protagonist in Just Out for a Drive. His actions and words advise us to "Have compassion for others. Don't think you're better than anyone. Ask God to forgive you."
