This review is from: ELEMENTS OF LIFE (BOOK 1) (Kindle Edition)
I've been a long time fan of short fiction, and this collection of shorts from author David Kendrick doesn't fail to deliver.
Elements of Life is an interesting mix of standard short fiction, and even shorter 'flash' fiction. And whilst each story has some sort of earth, water, air or fire theme, the actual element they each share is emotion. An author friend of mine once told me that the stock and trade of a writer is 'emotion', and this being the case Mr Kendrick delivers a lot of bang for your buck.
Take for instance the lead story, 'Elements' - my favourite of the eight - a story about a young boy coming to terms with the loss of his grandfather. Whilst I lost my own grandfather in my thirties, and he was a very different man to the sun worshipping Father Christmas lookalike Kendrick presents to us, something inside me resonates none the less. And that is the power of a good story teller.
Looking forward to your next book David.
