Really enjoyed this book. I wasn’t aware of the fact they came from a newspaper originally, which is only annoying because I think I’ve been missing out! This is a collection of 94 - not quite a million - exceedingly short plays, some much shorter than the others.

They provide snapshots of conversations around the country, from all walks of life. I think they are fiction, but they could quite easily be real life overhead snippets. Each one is convincing and captivating in a way that leaves you wanting more, but not frustrated. It inspires thoughts of all kinds of interesting characters and could easily be a jumping off point for even more creativity.

I really enjoyed reading the plays, I devoured them over the course of 24 hours. My only complaint is that there aren’t more in the book! (That and the fact 94 is a really odd number to finish on!)
