Christine A. Kirchoff’s “Body At The Beach”Â in Short Story LibraryÂ is a prime example of flash fiction with a twist.Â Not all flash fiction will contain a twist at the end but the twist can make the piece memorable.
This twist (and especially so in “A Girls Pleasure“) is the equivalentÂ of watching two characters in a movieÂ have a conversation on a park bench until the camera pans out to a wider shot – what onceÂ looked like a conversation in a park turns out to be a conversation on the grounds of a mental hospital.
TheÂ mood of “Body At The Beach” is peaceful.Â The unnamed main character is jubilant with his good fortune.Â It is up to the reader to decide if he made his good fortune or if he stumbled upon it.
Thank you very much for your kind review.
I look forward to reading more of your work, Christine.
