Concealed Twists

Little Dramas by Glenn McGoldrick is a collection of eight very short stories. They are short enough to be called flash fiction. As I read through each one, I jotted down by one-line takes as I read. There is a twist to each one. The twists are not necessarily grotesque or totally out of the realm of reality but some of them are a bit difficult to detect. I think writing them must have been pleasant for McGoldrick. As a reader, I enjoyed them, and I would give each of them an Amazon star rating. Some were fours, and some were threes; all were interesting. As a collection, they come in at 3.5 stars. I don’t believe the Amazon system allows me to give partial stars.

A Little Drama            In this case, the drama queen really didn’t act like one.

Six Down                    Sometimes puzzles are the answers.

A Deal                         A story of a clueless Dad

Elms                            You have to know when to fold ‘em.

A Letter                       Don’t accept every invitation.

Moving On                  Sometimes it’s good not to be curious.

No Good Deed            Winning is not always what it promises to be.

St Thomas                   Unexpected promotions for unexpected reasons.

This is a pleasant, fast, coffee break time or lunchtime read. It will refresh the mind.
