  • Hidden behind the landscaped yards, inside the spacious homes of suburbia are people haunted by paranoia Flash Fiction for the Cocktail hour is a collection of eleven suburban noir tales Like a shot of vodka, flash fiction is a quick hit to the brain, a startling peek into another s life at the end of the day You can think of it as as an alternative to a martini.

    It is hard to write good flash fiction. The space constraints prohibit any kind of real plot or character development. That being said, Flash Fiction for the Cocktail Hour does it fairly well. This is a short collection of roughly a dozen stories that are anywhere from one to maybe five or six pages in length that deal with the underside of suburbia. We tend to think of the burbs as a purified middle-class sanctuary from crime and deviant behavior, but what Cathryn Grant manages to do is use the [...]

    I would think it's harder to write short fiction and be able to convey an idea or emotion for the reader but Cathryn Grant manages to do this beautifully. I really enjoyed all the little stories in this book. Some could almost be called vignettes as they are quite short but I found that some of the shorter ones had that much more of an impact. Easily read in about a half hour and I would recommend to all.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Cathryn's collection of suburban noir tales. These are great little stories, which will certainly give me something to think about the next dinner party I am at, or a solo lunch, or sitting in traffic waiting for the car ahead of me to move. Very enjoyable indeed these "little peeks into the lives of others"

    Hilarious short tales that are also perfect for reading at the gym or in line at the bank. Or, as I became enthralled with Grant's style, mostly all at once with a couple shots of espresso.The character development is impressive for the length of the stories. And each story has a bit of twist that will make you go hmmm or GRRRR.

    This is my first experience with flash fiction. I love it! I am very impressed with the author's talent for immersing the reader in a situation, only to leave it unresolved. As in filmmaking. sometimes it is best left to the audience to decide each character's fate. I will certainly be reading more from this sub-genre.

    I love flash fiction. I love the fast pace, the emphasis on what is really important, the twists, the intensity. This book was everything I expected to read and more. I read it twice and I recommend it!

    If it wasn't so short, I wouldn't have finishedI like the idea of flash fiction, but this just isn't well done. Fortunately it a short book. If it was much longer, it would have earned one star.

    I did not like that not one story actually felt finished to me. Instead of ending they simply stopped. I did like what was written though.

    Like Twilight Zone with the suspense amped up to 11 and all the sci-fi sucked out, leaving nothing but paranoia.

    A quick and delightful read! It takes talent to write flash fiction that tells a story and adds unexpected spice to the ending.

    Some lovely flash fiction drinks, all chilled perfectly. More like shots than larger drinks, but hey. Excellent stuff. Hitchcockian. Just as I like it.

    Uneven collection - some stories were wonderful - others just ok. But certainly worth the read.
