Scoundrels Among Us

We rated this book:


The book is a collection of stories, none of which justifies the title. Some stories begin really well, but then they end abruptly. I found it pretty much impossible to connect with the characters. The stories don’t share a common theme; they are not even in the same genre.

Scoundrel’s Among Us is an incredibly long book; it wouldn’t hurt to remove some of the stories. Editing the rest to give them better endings would also be appropriate. I would be willing to read the book again if the author develops the stories further.

Some stories in the book bear the titles of famous books, but none of them live up to their titles. Their storylines only slightly resemble the books they are named for. I was expecting more from these kinds of stories; I always enjoy reading parodies, but these were a disappointment.

What I did like about the book is that it is well formatted and optimized for reading on all kinds of devices. I also didn’t find any grammatical errors in the book.
