Review: One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories

One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories
One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by B.J. Novak

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

**3.5/5

As with most short-story collections, it’s often difficult to find a star-rating that best represents the book as a whole — you’re torn between the stories you liked more than others and maybe even ones you straight up disliked.

Hence I give this a solid, but still positive rating. I really enjoyed some of the stories from this collection — the one on the tortoise and hare rematch might just be my favourite, but there was one involving a date with a warlord that made me laugh pretty hard (and feel a little inappropriate for doing so). But, despite this, where were some stories that just didn’t grip me — not necessarily bad, but just uninteresting. Hence, I couldn’t quite bump this up to a 4-star rating.

If you’re looking for an eclectic short story collection, this is a good place to start!
