This book, however, is perfect for that kind of reading time. Most of the stories can be read in their entirety in just a couple of minutes.
A clever concept, of course, cannot by itself make a great book. But thanks to this author's unfettered imagination, quirky sense of humor, and great touch with twist endings, these short stories provide entertaining and often intriguing micro reading experiences. Highly recommended!
If you're a writer, this collection also proves useful as a mine for ideas. If you sometimes get writer's block or are looking for better ways to develop your ideas check out his inspirational, The Writing Engine: A Practical Guide to Writing Motivation.
Hats off to this writer, what a terrific imagination. I'll be looking for more of his work. Highly recommended.
Reminded me of a book of similarly brief stories by Frederick Brown. They are great to dip into when you have some spare minutes or want a quick diversion.
And there's just lots of ideas in here. It's like someones head exploded and all the imagination just rained down.
