An interesting collection, some stories are better than others, I found some of them rather thought provoking. As promised in the introduction one of the stories is only two words long. I must admit, as I read through the book, I kept waiting to stumble on it. How good or bad could it be? I loved it!

Could have gotten by with half as many words in the title and the body of the work. but going all out and doubling the word count added that little bit more, that catches you in a split second and makes you smile.

This going in my 'read again' and 'find more' piles

A very entertaining collection of flash fiction pieces. Lots of twists and turns, surprise endings and wonderful exposes into fragments of lives. Great for a quick read between train stations, bus stops, or before going to sleep. Although, after some, you may not want to sleep! Thanks for the free read - really good.
