Book Review: Three Modern Shorts: The Park Stories by K. Kris Loomis

30 Mar

No time for novels? Try these Single Sit Stories!
What happens when a distraught teen and a whacky old woman meet in the park? How about a couple that weaves tales about spies and incurable diseases? Or when a father and daughter are presented with the opportunity to get to know one another better under unusual circumstances?
In these three modern short stories, author K. Kris Loomis offers us glimpses of universally shared moments in everyday relationships and life. They are humorous, thought-provoking, and written to be read in one sitting.

LOVELY HORNS
FRIDAY AFTERNOON
THE KING STOMPER

Available on Amazon.

 

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

These are short stories about different people meeting at a park bench, whether by accident or on purpose. “Lovely Horns” is about desperation, kindness, and hope. “Friday Afternoon” is about avoidance. “The King Stomper” is cute but is about communication, or the lack of. 

If you’re looking for something to read in one sitting, I recommend Three Modern Shorts: The Park Stories. They’re short but well written and intriguing. I’m hoping to read more of this author’s short stories.
