About the Book
This is a collection of 31 pieces of Flash Fiction: one for every day of January.
What I think
As a writer of flash fiction I was obviously interested to see what a collection would be like. I wasn't disappointed! What I love about flash fiction is that you can read it so quickly. Even if you've only got a couple of minutes, you can delve into this book and read about someone's life.
These tales are extremely varied. Whenever you start a new one, you never know what to expect. Some are funny, some adventurous, some read like science-fiction and some are sad.
Flash fiction is on the rise. People have less and less time and it's also easy to read on e-readers and iphones. If you're thinking of giving flash fiction a go, I would recommend this collection!
