In 2012 Pete Sortwell did something no one had ever done before: He wrote a book based entirely on Amazon product reviews. The book was so successful, he wrote a series. The series was so successful, he spent the next year releasing other projects he'd been working on. Now, for the first time, the stories he wrote while learning his craft are available.
From people stuck on roofs to stalkers following their wives to Weight Watchers meetings, this book is filled with oddballs, thieves, lowlifes, and other such lovelies. This book also contains the side story to Pete's debut novel So Low, So High, so if you're interested in finding out more about Fred, then this is the place.
Short stories:

"Noang lish"
"So Low, So High"
"Apt Pupil"
"One Flew Over the Policeman's Bonnet"
"Inside I'm Dancing"

Contained in this book are also samples of all of Pete's other books. The short stories amount to around 11,000 words.

Who Likes Short Shorts? These are funny, funny short stories. IF you don't mind hilarious salty language. Pete Sortwell cracks me up with his sense of humor. These are great laugh-out-loud stories that you just can't turn off.

Ian Barker is crazy funny. Great narration.

Funny, but Dark

What made the experience of listening to Who Likes Short Shorts? the most enjoyable?

I think negative humor is especially hilarious. Reminiscent of Anthony Jeselnik(sp?). Totally side-splitting, if you can laugh at the bad parts of the human condition!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Who Likes Short Shorts??

The weight-loss watchers meeting had me laughing so hard!!!

Which scene was your favorite?

The one where he was caught stalking his wife, who had a restraining order!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I DID listen to it in one sitting. At less than two hours, it was the perfect length.

Any additional comments?

Just that the narrators voice and expressions were perfect!
