    I thought this play book was really entertaining and I had a blast reading it I read this for a book club online and it s a book we all voted on and I was so happy to vote for it It was interesting reading something that came out in the 1940 s, and noticing things that made it stand out for that time period This book made me want to hunt down some old radio shows on tape or CDgreat stuff back then.

    Strange, short, and sweet Sorry Wrong Number is a clever story within a story.
