Short but Sweet: Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks

Short but Sweet: Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks


Tom "Yes He Can Write Too" Hanks' collection, "Uncommon Type: Some Stories" serves both those scenarios, offering up a few short but sweet tales intertwined with a few longer-running chapters that leave you hoping for a sequel.

With such a variety in the storytelling, the result is a different favorite for everyone that reads the collection. I'm not sure which I enjoyed more — one man's continuous trips back in time to visit the woman of his dreams, another woman's obsession with a $5 typewriter or a quartet of friends led through life adventures by what can only be described as the alpha-est alpha female that has ever lived.
