Guide Review - Hunting's Best Short Stories
I am a re-reader of books that I enjoy, and I've read some books many times. This book is partially re-readable by my standards, which is as good a method of comparison as any. Some I didn't care for at all, others are eminently re-readable.
Hunting's Best Short Stories starts and ends well, both tales involving elderly hunters leaving behind their passions, albeit in very different ways. The "meat" between these enjoyable slices is split, in terms of its appeal to me. Then again, I've been told more than once that I am not easy to please when it comes to reading material.
