I have just the two stories left. I find there is no real need to read the stories in any given. The length for any givens story varies considerably, and they cover a range of emotions. Some end in a lot more doom-laden a manner than others. It's been a while since I've consistently enjoyed a short story collection, but they usually work for me, perhaps given my often shaky attention span! :)

I'm always behind with BOTM, but I have acquired Holding Fire and am throughout three stories so far. If they are any indication of what's to come, then this book is definitely worth the purchase.

If I may ask, would this book be similar to the movie that is almost of the same title? The other movie that comes to mind is Hunger games which I thought was ok but was rather meant for the young teens age group.

Awesome you have many great reasons and I am going to make sure I get myself a copy. I think that it is great when we support one of our own in the community. I am excited about reading this book and sharing it with my family and friends.
