Marry Me by Dan Rhodes 174 pages

Is Marry Me by Dan Rhodes what is known as “flash fiction”?  If so, I confess that I am not much of a fan.  Some of these short stories are only a paragraph long. The longest is three pages long.  They are all told from a man’s point of view and describe the various stages of a relationship: meeting, dating, falling in love, planning nuptials, breaking up, etc.  Sometimes these were funny, sometimes brutal, sometimes sad. 

The book was a quick read, but I found myself putting it down and reading it in small doses instead of reading the whole book in one sitting.  It is not that I did not like the book, maybe I just did not “get it”.
