I found Stories and Places I Remember: A Collection of Short Stories by Joe Giordano to be a fun read. I was entertained from start to finish. I enjoyed every single story. The over twenty five stories were a delight to read. I laughed out loud at times and warmed my heart at others. It was great to read.
I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
