Review copy provided in exchange for an honest review
I love the 100 word format, and seeing what a writer can accomplish with this specific amount of words is a lot of fun. Years ago when I first discovered stories were being written with just 100 words, few were attempting it, and even fewer were excelling at it. I see it is catching on and I’m thrilled at what writers are coming up with.
Reviewing a 100 word story is extremely difficult. What do I say without giving it all away? Well, in this case I can say the stories in this collection are wide ranging. I found some to be a bit predictable, while others were down right fantastic. Many went full force, gave great twists, held no punches. I shook my head at many, felt a knife to the chest from other, and was on the edge of my seat at times. I did a few double takes, had my brain twisted, was out right shocked, and even laughed. With 100 stories I can’t possibly mention them all, but the following left their mark. These were my favorites, I’m sure you will have your own. This was a great read, a lot of fun, and a book I can easily recommend
