Fun little books of stories of 25 words or less. Some stories were breathtaking. Some stories I didn’t get. Some stories were just okay. I read it in less than an hour. I’ll will probably revisit many of the stories again. Certainly I will use this idea as a writing assignment in my classes. ( )

Some real gems, some others that were ok. Nice quick read. Read it in a few chunks. Great to see so many of these quick stories compiled in one place. It was a nice way to study the form. ( )

Really interesting type of fiction. I am intrigued enough to maybe try my hand at writing a few myself. ( )

The book defines its new genre as “a story of 25 words or fewer that suggests a larger, more complex story.”

Could such a form suggest a smaller, less complex story?
