HARD TO READBy L. K. WeissVery disappointing - I returned this book as the text was hard to read. The print looked as though it had been typed on a typewriter which had keys


that didn't strike fully. Weird.....1 of 1 people found the following review helpful.

Entertaining and Thought Provoking Collection of Great StoriesBy David"The Lady or the Tiger," and other stories by Frank Stockton, the penname of clergyman Thonias Hewlings Stockton, is one of his most popular works. This is a collection of short stories and the title story, "Lady or The Tiger," is the most thought provoking. Originally written in 1882, this classic is a good story for children to develop their critical thinking skills. All of these stories can be enjoyed by adult readers as well. Each story is entertaining and a great read.Stockton's stories contain strange occurrences and events. Coupled with a touch of irony, Stockton weaves tales of complex plots and paradoxes, combined with a dash of satire. Not only is this a great piece of literature, but an enjoyable read as well.The characters created by Stockton appear genuine as well as being colorful and memorable to the reader. The narrative flows well and the reader soon becomes absorbed in the story.I thoroughly enjoyed every story and highly recommend it to all readers, young and old. Enter a magical realm of fantasy and adventure...a world of brave heroes, daring quests, and fabulous monsters!A sleepy village is thrown into a flurry when the local man-eating monster decides to pay a call in "The Griffin and the Minor Canon."A gentle beekeeper undertakes a dangerous journey to solve a sorcerer's mysterious riddle in "The Beeman of Orn."Having angered the ruthless king of a faraway land, a young hero is forced to face the ultimate challenge...choose "The Lady, or the Tiger"?And re-enter the tiger's arena with "The Discourager of Hesitancy"--the rare and difficult continuation of "The Lady, or the Tiger"!These are but some of the timeless tales in this collection by a master American storyteller!
