Most of the stories are excellent, and I had so many LOL moments that I lost count. The stories are heartwarming, poignant, and so real that I felt like I knew the authors. I liked this book so much that I bought 3 copies as gifts.

The Moth is a collection of short stories told by real individuals. I first heard about The Moth through their podcast, also titled The Moth. The podcast has the real people whose stories are in this book telling their stories. It is a radio show featured on NPR. I was lucky enough to hear an episode on CBC Radio one day.

This book is excellent. Well written, short, and meaningful stories. Perfect for gifts and also perfect before bed, when you don't necessarily want to read a lot. I gave this book to my grandmother who reads it to the residents in her retirement home. They all love the stories. The tales told appeal to a large audience. I hope they come out with a second book soon!
