What is being said at Goodreads.

Goodreads, the site which encourages grandma's, "If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all"*  has a lot of nice comments up regarding my "Treating A Sick Animal"   

Here's a few summaries, but to see who said what, click the previous link:

"One of his opening shorts “In and Out” sucked me into a vortex, and I couldn’t escape until I finished the book from cover to cover."

"One of my favorite things is the way the author takes an object and twists it into something else entirely. This concept can be found in many of the sories, but my favorite one was "Just Dessert." The focus of the story is on a belt buckle and then it morphs into a love story. "

"Tim Gager's book of flash and micro fiction reads like an old wooden roller coaster ride, where the carnie is on speed and you've just eaten a plate full of nachos, with extra ghost chilis. It's dangerous stuff, but in a good way."

"Gager does it again with raw, eclectic stories that sometimes make you sick and sometimes give you the warm and fuzzes."

"Tim's flash stories are little gems. He has a gift for revealing the exact moments in his characters' lives when everything changes."

"Sometimes surreal, sometimes all to real, always gritty, raw and original, Timothy Gager's flash fictions say so much with so little. These are literary delights you're going to want to savor."
