My dad has always loved mystery/ thriller stories in books, movies, TV shows, anything. He has read my whole life but when he was diagnosed with stage four cancer last year he slowed down a lot and reading was a form of escape for him while he was going through chemo and infusions and surgery. I got him this subscription box for Christmas right after we found out last year and he raves about how much he has loved every single book he gets in these boxes. Especially the ones he would never have picked out for himself or stories he didn’t expect to be interested in based on the dust cover description. This subscription box has done a lot more for my dad than just provide the gift of a few stories a month and I’ll always be thankful for the great selection of stories that got him through a difficult time. I highly recommend.
