Publisher's Summary

In 2012 Pete Sortwell did something no one had ever done before: He wrote a book based entirely on Amazon product reviews. The book was so successful, he wrote a series. The series was so successful, he spent the next year releasing other projects he'd been working on. Now, for the first time, the stories he wrote while learning his craft are available.
From people stuck on roofs to stalkers following their wives to Weight Watchers meetings, this book is filled with oddballs, thieves, lowlifes, and other such lovelies. This book also contains the side story to Pete's debut novel So Low, So High, so if you're interested in finding out more about Fred, then this is the place.
Short stories:

"Noang lish"
"So Low, So High"
"Apt Pupil"
"One Flew Over the Policeman's Bonnet"
"Inside I'm Dancing"

Contained in this book are also samples of all of Pete's other books. The short stories amount to around 11,000 words.

Short Stories Based On Darker Side Human Nature

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a collection of Pete Sortwell's works. I have enjoyed almost all of what I have listen to from this author – the exceptions being a cultural difference, they were good, I just didn't get it!

This was a lot different than the lighthearted humor of Dating in the Dark or the Father Diaries. These are 10-15 minute stories. It is cheeky humor about more serious issues? I'm not really sure how to explain. Perhaps, if you have a loved one with mental issues or weight problems & you have no sense of humor you probably want to avoid this. Or maybe it would help you through.

The narration was perfect for the material. Great performance.

I received this book as a gift in exchange for my review.

Who Likes Short Shorts? These are funny, funny short stories. IF you don't mind hilarious salty language. Pete Sortwell cracks me up with his sense of humor. These are great laugh-out-loud stories that you just can't turn off.

Ian Barker is crazy funny. Great narration.
