Stories to Read While Driving: Kill the King and Other Tales by Jim Heskett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a strange, yet compelling collection of short stories. The longest story centered around a plot to kill a very unpopular king, told through the perspective of the official food taster. Although the stories were a bit odd at times, I found myself intrigued by these stories; they were engaging and kept my interest well. The author chose to include discussion questions at the end of each story, but I did not find these questions helpful or useful. If you like short stories, these are a fun and interesting way to spend an afternoon.
