This is another short read that I found on Kindle. It takes around fifteen minutes to read it, that’s all.
There are these 10-minute reads that are becoming popular on Kindle these days. I find them perfect when I need to read something to refocus before a longer read. I was happy to see Jeffrey Archer among the authors of such 10-minute reads.
Short story collections are wonderful to read because there are different stories, different characters, different settings, all coming together in one book. It can also be read slowly, a couple of stories at a time, not really tempting to read the whole book because each story needn’t be related to each other.
They say a well told story doesn’t have to be very long. So many writers love writing short stories. This book takes the stories a notch further. These are flash fiction. Would they still be “thrilling”? I’ve read the author’s work before, and knew the genre would definitely play to her strengths.
I’m reading quite a few short books of late. In a way, it is wonderful. I am able to see that it is not the length of the story that makes quality reading. I’ve not read much of Satyajit Ray’s works, so when I saw this book among the ten-minute reads option, I had no hesitation to pick it up.
I mentioned in one of my earlier posts about some eBooks being there now which you can read in ten or fifteen minutes at most. It was nice to see a couple of books from Ruskin Bond in that list too. I have always admired the writing of Ruskin Bond. It’s simple writing that anyone can follow and enjoy reading.
