Ninety-Three Very Short Stories

This book has been written for those of us who are on the go, busy, in a waiting room, an aircraft, commuting or just wanting a quick read with a coffee. You should be able to read each story in under five minutes. The stories do not have a common theme - some are amusing, some sad, some about relationships, some are based abroad or in a different time - but all encapsulate the human condition.


Great Stories!

These stories grabbed me from the very start. They are so entertaining and varied and I would recommend them to anyone who wants a quick read. If you have not tried short stories before, you should try these. The author clearly has a lot of perception and writes with clarity and humour.

Great Read

This collection of short stories is entertaining and thought provoking. Each story is captivating and different and so I never became bored. Sue has a real gift of understanding human nature that is expressed in irony, humour and clarity. The book is well written and I would recommend it as an ideal holiday read. Ideal for the train or plane

Short stories compendium

Sue Cross has won awards for her short stories and many of these are very relatable to most of us. "Stories to Go" are just that: easy to dip into while waiting at the doctor's, the dentist's or the bus. Sue Cross's cosmopolitan and much-traveled background comes through in her stories and there's always an interesting twist in the end. As a British expat living in the US, I had no problem relating to some geographical references and English idioms such as pinny for apron. Each one of the ninety-three short stories is unique and I find it difficult to single my favorites but I did find "Mother's Word of Wisdom". "Head Banging", "On the Rocks", "A Moving Experience", really entertaining. There is something for everybody in this book and I certainly recommend it.
