My First Experience with Flash Fiction Apr 16, 2008
Reading You Have Time for This was really exciting! The stories in this book were the first pieces of flash fiction that I had read. I am now an avid fan of the genre! The organization of this book was well paced, and as interesting as each of the stories individually.

Very compelling short-short stories Feb 19, 2008
A writer friend of mine recommended "You Have Time For This", explaining that it was an anthology or short-short fiction. I was very dubious. Well, I bought it anyway, and found, to my complete surprise, a series of stories that are quite compelling. This was, for me, an entirely new and exciting literary experience. The stories, by dint of their brevity, make for very compelling pieces. One is, in a way,mesmerized by what is often a surrealist effect created by the shortening of time and space.I read it from cover to cover, without once taking a break--which is unusual for me.
I was drawn in Feb 13, 2008
The experience of reading flash stories is qualitatively different from reading a novel. It's necessary to be a more active participant in the story telling - and that's what I find so captivating. Rather than sit back and be a passive observer of the author's fully-presented vision, we are only allowed a thin slice. A tantalizing peek through a partly open door. If the author is skillful, the peek is enough to let you tease out the story. If you have the least voyeuristic tendency, you should read this book. It's filled with sly glimpses into the lives of others - and don't be fooled by their briefness. You'll be mulling over the characters long after the story is finished.
You do have time for this. In fact it's better if you don't have a lot of time. The pleasure is extended and the stories are there for you whenever you have a minute to read.
