Flash Fiction Addiction: 22 Short Short Stories Reviews
Flash Fiction Addiction is 22 short stories, none of which you'll want to lull yourself into "sweet dreamland" with. Revenge, betrayal, anguish, and rage are the order of the day here, and each piece is a graphic flashing moment in time...raw, gripping, and gasp-worthy. But the stories aren't "horror" - even the ones with a supernatural spin feel as real as the first time you were purposely misled, or the last time somebody stomped on your heart. You truly feel the private anguish of the tortured souls in these stories.This is a well-written book and the author's talent for vivid detail and plunging into the shadows of human consciousness is stunning. I recommend this read to anybody who enjoys bite-sized fiction, and especially to those who like it with a bitter edge. I have nothing but good things to say about this brooding, dark book.
Flash Fiction AddictionSometimes I feel like I’m a Hobbit, living in a hole in the ground, but I only recently learned about Flash Fiction. Imagine my surprise when I learned that it has roots going as far back as Aesop's Fables. No one tells me anything!My take on this type of writing, you tell the whole story in a few words, one short story, or what I would consider a chapter. Direct and to the point, no worries about what came before or after…well, maybe a little.I like it!Garden Summerland has grasped this concept and run with it. Her anthology is a collection of twenty-two flash fiction stories of several different genres; light horror, romance, paranormal & crime, showcasing several of her previously published works, as well as several of her new stories. If I had to describe this book in one word, it would be…PASSION!This book keenly captures the emotions of the human experience. People are in anguish, some in love, and of course there is hatred. Others are just scared, while others, diabolical. Believe me, capturing and communicating these emotions believingly on paper is a gargantuan task, but Garden has done it with seeming ease. This book is a roller coaster of emotions as you delve into the darker side of all of us, a side we don’t always want to acknowledge. You feel the hurt and anguish of an unfettered, yet unfulfilled love, the maddening demons that drive us to revenge, and the horror of the outcome.You feel the prison of a deranged mind, suggesting to you things that you abhor, yet following through on command like a robot is unavoidable, feeding the obsession, a never ending cycle banging in your head. Passion and desire fill your senses, the touch of your lover at once demanding, yet gentle.(Takes breath)Plus, there are vampires… and angels!I think it is good to veer out of you normal read once in awhile, out of your comfort zone. One gets stuck in a routine that I believe, as a writer, or a reader, can make you stale. ‘Flash Fiction Addiction’ certainly awakened my mind to the all encompassing, sometimes devastating, emotions that are in all of us. Garden Summerland has uniquely captured the essence of these emotions in her first published volume. It is a must read for anyone that wants to explore the passion of the human soul.JT Lewis
This was my first attempt at reading flash fiction and I have to say that Miss Summerland was a great author to start with. I loved it. All of her stories were intriguing. I adored the way she'd finish most of the stories off with a quick sentence or two that made you go, 'well, shit. That's what's happening here!'. :D This author has a great way of describing these scenarios so that you get lost in the stories in the least amount of words. I'll definitely be looking up more of her work.
Flash Fiction Addiction 22 Short short stories by Garden Summerland has got to be one the most surprising finds I have read this year. It was filled with short, I mean 'short' stories, full of mystery/thriller/murder and a touch of paranormal flavors. I enjoyed reading the 22 she included in this collection. Garden Summerland does an excellent job pulling the reader in to become one with the characters and feel their emotions ranging from love, hate, lust, and regret. I found myself at the end faster than I would have liked and really ready for more. My only regret is that it was a really quick read. Definitely a heart pounding, gut wrenching, mind bending journey. Well worth the read!
