Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks

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.
