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.

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.

Something for everyone...

This is a collection of many short stories. Inside this book is something for everyone. We all will like at least 1 or 2 if not more of these stories and some of us will like them all! This audio book is done in a UK accent and author is UK, so keep in mind, some words and /or manners are more funny over there than over here in the USA and not all words mean the same thing. I happen to love listening to accents!

Some of these are funny, some are touching and some just need to be told. My favorite in this book was the story of a man whose family was killed in an accident by a drunk driver who was a lawyer and got off, along with what this man did for his own justice. It was touching and emotional and in a few minutes, tore my heart out! I loved it. To listen as this man told his story is unforgettable.

The author, Pete Sortwell did another fine job writing this book. His narrator, Ian Barker did a splendid job with all his multiple voices and there was a lot of them too! I loved the emotion added into the voices! Good job guys!
