I was pleasantly surprised by this collection. Tom Hanks can write! The stories are diverse and interesting (even though they all contain a typewriter) and I had a joy reading the majority of them. That said, there is one story that he returns to time and time again that I couldn’t stand. I would be feeling very good about the book and then would be so incredibly disappointed.
One of the stories has stuck out to me more than the others since I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. Hanks has worked his way into my head, making this a story collection that I will never forget.
