    I won a copy of this book in a goodreads giveaway It s a clever collection of short stories, some are less than a page long but still tell a fiendish tale in so few words Once I started I didn t stop till I got to the end.

    Bottles a woman whose frustrations with Bottles Pots is a self published collection of nineteen flash fictions and short stories beautifully summed up by the subtitle dark tales of betrayal, mind games and murder Written by 1000words flashcomp winner and eminently qualified psychologist Jacqueline Pye, these stories delve in to the deep, dark recesses of the human mind, shining an interrogative light on the reasons people do what they do There s a little girl faced with her worst fear clowns a woman whose frustrations with the minor irritations of life send her down the path to major calamity and a woman scorned like which fury hell hath no and that s just in the first three stories All the stories hooked me with their punchy and provocative first lines, but my favourite pieces were the shorter stories the flash fictions Here the language is tight and the exposition subtle Plenty is left to the readers imaginations, which makes for an intriguing and satisfying read For me, Graffito, Tonic, Ripples and Sandcastle worked particularly well Of the longer stories, my favourites were Cob Webs, The Stones The Stones, Retribution, Rocket and The Disappointing Tale of Sour Pete which was, I felt, the best story in the book It has a listening to a campfire tale quality to it that I very much enjoyed My only criticism with the longer stories is that there were moments where events were summarised and expository information was dumped instead of beingsubtly delivered by characters playing out scenes.On the whole, I liked this collection Not only does Jacqueline do mind games very well, she does suspense, humour and pathos very well too I m very much looking forward to reading her next book.3 5 I liked it I was given a free copy of this book to review
