The Long Road
This book is a collection of short stories that was written over a span of more than ten years. These stories all pack a punch, and may keep you interested enough to keep reading.
For people with short attention spans that find reading an entire book too difficult, it's been written for the most basic of readers.
You will have to think about what is said, because it may not be obvious at first what is really meant by these stories.
It will give you something to talk about with someone else, and if nothing else will put some culture back into your life to have intelligent conversations with others about.
Read them all, and move to the next set of books written by Christopher Thomas, there are more.
