 These short stories focuses on a particular snippet of life, may it be an instant during war, a simple letter to one's family, or a family reunion. And when well done, those can often be more poignant than 5k stories trying to achieve the sane effect. And MarmaladeCat does exactly that well: capturing in a single snippet what would take another less gifted author 5k words.

The messages are also, for the most part, about morality, ethics, and the love between human beings. And that is a gem to find.

The characters aren't as well developed as in longer story, but that is to be expected. And the focus isn't as much about the OCs but on the underlying theme of the stories.

All in all, a great collection: short, poignant, and direct to the point.
