Bridget's Review

  • Dec 6, 2010
Rating:
+5
I loved this book! The short yet entertaining stories are unlike anything I have ever read before. Hint Fiction was refreshing because it proves that a lot of fluff isn't necessary to make a story work. This would make a great gift this holiday season, even for those who aren't avid readers.

About this book

Wiki

Some of these stories suggest entire novels in just few words. So, in this small book, you have a whole library. It’s reading at the speed of light. (Robert Shapard, editor ofSudden FictionandFlash Fiction)

The perfect story collection for all of us with too little time on our hands is a brilliant reminder of the magic that happens when you string the right words together. A must-read for anyone who is or wants to be a writer. (Jodi Picoult,New York Timesbestselling author ofHouse Rules)

The stories in Robert Swartwood'sHint Fictionhave some serious velocity. Some explode, some needle, some bleed, and some give the reader room to dream. They're fun and addictive, like puzzles or haiku or candy. I've finished mine but I want more. (Stewart O'Nan, author ofLast Night at the Lobster)
