There’s an old saying, proverb if you will which talks about walking in someone else’s shoes. Which in reality means you can't really understand someone else unless you live their life, walk in their shoes so to speak. 

The reason I’m mentioning this is that I’ve written and self-publish a Flash Fiction book myself; in fact the one’s I’ve written are for the most part are only FIVE SENTENCES long. So I understand the skill and complexity it takes to write a story which can be considered to be Flash Fiction.

In her book, Janelle Jalbert has written 40 Flash Fictions each complete with a beginning, a middle, and an ending with a surprise at the end; reminiscent to the short stories by O’Henry. Each of her stories is full of emotions; making for an enjoyable quick read. The best thing about these stories is that each can be read completely while having a single cup of your favorite coffee; and they can be read in any order you desire.

While all this might be the case, the book could use a little editing to tighten everything up, which is why I’m giving this book 4 STARS.
