Available on Amazon, this short book gave me a long, delectable read. Although it could be read in a single sitting, I preferred to have the thought provoking flash fiction, short stories, micro flash and one liners wash over me slowly, letting me digest the twists and turns and the black places to which Sarah Brentyn took me. Savouring each piece like my favourite meal.
Brentyn is a master at this genre of writing, with twists that are unexpected as they are shocking. No story exceeded 100 words and many, including those that hit hardest, were over in a blink of an eye, leaving you feeling as though you’d been socked in the stomach.
I am going to give nothing away and hence my review is as short as Brentyn’s book but nowhere near as powerful. She describes it “No-one escapes unscathed. Delve into the deeper reaches of the human condition and the darkness that lives there.” I can describe it no better myself and would highly recommend this book of psychological shorts.
