Sixty Seconds

Sixty Seconds - Claire Farrell I enjoyed reading these stories. They're well-written, with interesting perspectives, and they go deep into the point-of-view characters' experiences.One small disappointing thing is that there's some head-hopping - just when the reader is deep inside one character's experience, seeing what that character sees, feeling what that character feels - suddenly the point of view switches for a sentence or a paragraph, jolting the reader out of the experience. I found this frustrating, especially for this kind of story which is in deep point of view. It wouldn't have mattered much if it was a more shallow point of view and characterisation, but at this depth, it definitely jolted me. Admittedly, I'm more sensitive about point of view than the average reader, and some readers may not mind.I would describe them as contemporary urban stories with a dark slant.
