Genre – Varies, 13 Short Stories
Rating 3 stars our of 5 Posted 5/20/16
The thirteen short stories contained in Details are varied with no common theme. Some are better than others, but none were great reads because there is not enough detail or intensity to pull a reader in and hold their interest.
The first short story, Dividends, is so poorly written and edited it's hard to believe the same author crafted the others. In it, Aaron is shot in the kneecap, then parachutes out of an airplane and walks, kneels, and runs for a day. Then when he is shot in the shoulder he suddenly dies. The actions are ridiculous.
Continuity is lacking; before jumping out of an airplane the characters are several miles up, after leaving the plane they are a few thousand feet from the ground.
I read half the stories then stopped. The rest of the stories are better as far as writing and editing, but being extremely short they have minimal character development or plot.
A major flaw of the entire book is the formatting. The author needs to reformat or hire a professional to fix the multiple problems. Ebooks do not need page numbers, the author's name should not appear at each new story and page breaks should be inserted at each new story.
