This was not quite as good as I expected it to be. It was interesting at times, though. Mr. Fox is a writer and Mary Foxe is his muse. They decide to play a game where they write different stories so the whole book is kind of a series of short stories linked together by what's happening with Mr. Fox, his wife, and Mary. I kind of hate short stories because I get really into a story and then it ends and moves on to something else. I was really into the beginning of the book (before I kind of realized it was a bunch of linked stories) and I was really sad when the first story ended. I wanted to see how that all ended. Not the best book I've read this year, but not a complete waste.
