    1. I read this because I had enjoyed Amatore's restaurant so much. This is very different, consisting of five short stories. All of them contain surprises and things are not what they seem to be. I liked Night Reception in which Phil is not sure exactly what happens during the night he spends at the hotel. Cliff Hanger's homecoming was unexpected as I thought I could see the way the story was going to turn out, but the ending is unpredictable. An air of suspense runs through all these stories and I [...]


    2. I read this after reading and enjoying Amatore's Restaurant by the same author. I love short stories, always look out for them and was not disappointed when I read these. These five stories are all about different subjects. Comedy Hour is about a housekeeper who is fed up with the old lady she looks after. Beautiful Land is a story with a surprise ending, you won't expect what happens. My favourite is Night Reception, a creepy story set in a old hotel which I always think are scary places anyway [...]


    3. Amazingly written. I can't believe the details of each character that was thought out. Well done, Mr. Sillwood
