Review by: LoraineT on Oct. 30, 2015 :
A good, descriptive story.
I agree with Michael, it does need to be polished off, especially in the area of punctuation and paragraphing.
Well worth the read.

I received a free copy of this story in exchange for an unbiased, non-reciprocal review.

Drive is an edgy flash fiction contemporary family life story with a dash of mystery. It’s a good example of flash fiction done well - simple plot, flawed characters in a state of change, and a conclusion that lingers in your thoughts long after you’ve read ‘The End’.

The story can be polished off in one sitting, which is ideal if you’re like me, time poor, but needing something to read every day. Read it on your commute to work, and you might look at people driving their cars in a different light.

It’s very much in the style of the modern minimalist short story, with sparse descriptions, but pulling the reader’s focus to a few well-chosen details, allowing the imagination to fill in the blanks. Jon Edgell writes this style well. After reading this story, I’ll look up more of his work.
