Smashwords book reviews by Prakash Vir Sharma

  • Ship Rats on June 29, 2017

    Ship Rats is an amazing work about the rats. I loved the way how brilliantly the author described their thoughts, fear and communication.

    OMG! These boxes (short stories) are full of delight, suspense, surprise, wisdom, love, regret, disgust, frustration, surrender, sadness and much more. Sally Hanan presented a great collection of 30 flash fiction short stories. Some stories made me laugh, while others left me on the verge of tears. I enjoyed a good mix of parody and true stories. During reading this book I felt myself travelling to courtroom and church. As a life coach, she demonstrated her skills very well in this book. I have found a blank page there, hence it's my personal opinion that the book needs reformatting.
