Grabbed my attention in seconds and within minutes I was connected to the characters wanting more.
Marbles Within The Circle is a collection of short stories just perfect if you can only spare a few minutes for a good read.
Funny thing though I could NOT put it down and every spare minute I wanted to read the next story. I almost missed my subway stop, twice!

Marbles Within The Circle: A Short Story Collection Author Glenn Hayes grabs you right away, setting the stage beautifully. And there is a nice variety - some spooky ghost stories, a slice of life portrait of crazy, a glimpse of army barracks, another about two ancient tribes who are tragically spellbound by greed, one about young boys coming of age, but the one thing they have in common, the characters are so real you "get" them right away. Many of the stories you feel the deep love humans are capable of (I teared up several times). Some show our human flaws. All ring true and this author switches gears quickly following the characters lead. I can already think of several people I want to buy this book for. Prepare to be hooked!

This is such a great book of short stories. As I read each story I would try to determine the direction it was going and I was always pleasantly surprised. Each story gave me something to think about whether it pertained to my life or the lives of others.
I found myself looking forward to the next story that would leave me content that I took just a few minutes to put my mind in a good and peaceful place.

These stories are enjoyable.
Many of the stories have a modern AESOP quality to them. They are prophetic. I identified with several of them; they do address peculiar themes of our nature. Each story causes some reflection of lifetime experience, even if mythical.
A must read!

An excellent read for both young adults and older, a diverse and moving collection of short stories to captivate one's imagination. So diverse it's like reading many a good book. Loved it, couldn't put it down.
