    One thought on “Sudden Flash Youth: 65 Short-Short Stories”

    1. I’m starting to like short stories more and more. They are very refreshing, especially after a big book. However, I have never read a collection like this one. The stories are so short that I found myself wondering how the writers managed to express an idea in so very few words. And because the stories are so short, some of them only half a page or even less, the connection with the reader is made quickly, with detailed paragraphs which drew me in from the very first words.In Heartland, by Dap [...]

    2. This collection of short stories addresses the theme of childhood/youth experience. Most selections are shorter than 2,000 words, and there is a well-chosen range of writers from Richard Brautigan to several first time published writers. The quality of all the selections is quite good, and the styles of writing range from the "realistic" to post-modern, but the criterion for selection for the anthology seems to be quality, which is quite refreshing.

    3. I’m not going to review this anthology like I would normally review a novel because this book contains dozens of short stories that have their own merits. What I really liked about this collection as a whole was the fact that all the stories were short, very short. Some were cute, others were funny, and others were depressing. All worth reading. Definitely pick it up if you’re looking for something to read and not wanting to connect to a character emotionally. This collection won’t give yo [...]

    4. When planning over the summer for the creative writing elective that I am teaching this year, I noticed this collection on amazon.The pieces, which are between one and four pages in length are well chosen literature shorts. My student enjoyed them, and any of the pieces will fit nicely into a short story unit.

    5. I picked this book up hoping it would give me some good material to teach to my 10th graders. It served that role perfectly. Virtually every story in the collection is teach-able, and would hold the interest of HS students. I strongly prefer this volume to _MicroFiction: An Anthology of Really Short Stories_ by Jerome Stern. Most of the stories in Stern's volume were really confusing. This stories in this volume are much more accessible, while still being subtle--there's still plenty to unpack/a [...]

    6. When I read New Sudden Fiction: Short-Short Stories From America and Beyond, I remember really liking it. A couple of the stories in there really stuck with me - there was one called "Reply All," and another one by David Foster Wallace which was a bit much, but will always stick with meThis collection had flashes of brilliance, but I can't imagine I'll really remember any of the stories in a year. Or a week.Here are the authors I'd wish to apologize to for the 2 star review:Elizabeth Ehrlich, Da [...]

    7. This book really captures the raw emotions and confusing times of what its like to grow up. The book, "Sudden Flash Youth", contains 65 short stories written by multiple authors, describing how different scenarios can cause a person to suddenly grow up. Although each story is different, all stories starts off with characters that are living in their own world, but as the stories develops something happens that causes the characters to suddenly wake up and face the reality of the world around the [...]

    8. There were some lovely stories in this collection. There were some that made me think, some that gave me the feels, some that were hard to read because of the subject matter, and some that surprised me because they went somewhere I didn't expect.If you like flash fiction, this is an excellent collection of it. There were only a few stories that made me wrinkle my nose in distaste. Anthologies can be hit and miss at times, but I think this one was far more hit than miss.

    9. I really enjoyed reading these short-short stories. There are a handful that are 5 stars and a few that are probably only 2, but over all it's a good collection. They were collected around the theme of youth and children. So one of my favorite themes in one of my favorite formats. I recommend it!

    10. Absolutely loved some of these stories (all very short, 1-3 pages, usually, but spanning genres All somehow set in youth ), liked most of them, and only found a few to be just okay. Real gem for class, writing models, inspiration, and reflection on life.

    11. Though it did peter out a little bit in the last third or so of the book, this was a great anthology. I've found short story collections can be a real mixed bag, but this one was definitely worth reading all the way through.

    12. This was an interesting book. The stories were so short that you could not get bored reading it. Although many were depressing and sad, the book had a few excellent highlights.

    13. Full disclosure: my short story, "No Wake Zone," appears in this collection along with great stories by Steve Almond, Ron Carlson, Dave Eggers, Alice Walker, and many others.
