This compilation was extremely good value when I bought it so I have no complaints on that score. All the books featured were readable and covered a wide variety of tastes. I enjoyed some more than others, though I have to admit I skipped almost the whole of the magic one, just not for me.
I admit it, I read a lot . Having spent the last few years of my life commuting for up to 5 hours a day, I felt any book was better than no book at all. However, I am trying to change that attitude, but, still find myself bulk buying whenever I can. Consequently, I frequently find I have to wade through a lot of rubbish while hoping to find something worthwhile. This set was a challenge. I enjoyed a couple of stories, Holding out for a Hero,, and Long Distance Love. Both had some credibility and realism. The rest of the bundle was embarrassingly awful. Also, please note, the final story ,Silent Partner, is not only awful, it is totally unrealistic. Most deaf mutes are only mute because they are born deaf and never learn to talk. Should hearing loss occur after a child has mastered speech, voice and language will not be affected. Any hearing impaired person able to lipread would not waste time and effort with signing to non- hearing impaired. Sign is hard work, believe me.
