My personal opinion in general is good. I like the book a lot, because the stories were too interesting, although I don't like the end of some stories, because I think that there wasn't have emotion. The stories that I more like are "Smee" and "The judge' s house", because the development of the theme is good and the end is too exciting, better than the others. I don't understand some expressions because the book isn't for my level but if it is of a higher level it can has better stories, in my opinion. In conclusion, I recommend the book to everyone because is interesting and it isn't heavy, the book can be read quickly.
