I received this ARC from Netgalley in return for an honest review.7 top French authors got together to write this collection. Each wrote different parts and then passed it along to the other so that all contributed to the stories.I don't know that shorts are for me, as I could not get into this book at all. I knew what I was getting into as I had read the description but I felt that it was very disjointed due to the many different authors switching back and forth every page or so.However, it is obvious that the authors know what they are doing. The stories do come together and are cohesive. They range from crazy to touching and everything in between. I recognized a few of the authors names. If you're a fan of any of them I can see this being a must read.
