So sang Andre 3000 of Outkast. He'd just read The Mistletoe Murder and Other Stories by P D James.

He's given us his review, now give us yours. Whatcha think?

Do we review a story at a time or do we wait and review the book as a whole?

Fine. Then I can exclusively reveal that I have read the first story and was entirely whelmed.

Should I have done 4 polls? So we could assign degrees of whelming to each one?

On a three card GT/BT/T (Good Thing / Bad Thing / Thing) scale it was definitely A Thing.

On a five card system (VBT/BT/T/GT/VGT) it still ranks a Thing, actually.

I am reading story 1. I just have to step in here to admire "given half a chance, he would have pawed me and assessed my second hand value." Clever.

[the book will always score well with me because of the charming events of last Saturday morning, with Badgo and Serrers alerting me to the choice on twitter when I was within sight of Ye Bintshoppe]
