Vincent wows readers with his no-start-nor-no-end writing. By this I mean some tales just seem to be a continuation and as a reader you left to connect the dots while others just end in mere anxiety.

The stories are succinct and bravely told. What is more intriguing is the fact that the succinctness does not in any way hinder grave issues from addressed. They are beautifully woven with twists and turns that leave the reader in awe. Nicely plotted conflicts which thrive on suspense completely hooked me.

Nothing short of outstanding, Vincent De Paul really displays he's mastery of the flash fiction form. He's able to get hold of his readers from start to finish, you won't realise the book has ended, yet you crave for more.
