1. I thought it was well written for one and kept my interest throughout the book so i was always looking forward to reading the next story.

  2. This is a book of short stories, stories that make you think, make you shudder, make you wonder what is in the mind of the writer. In particular the story entitled THE DARKENING MOON caught my attention, I do not think the writer really wanted to project pathos, but that is exactly what comes through. Loss of hope, loss of love and eventually loss of life. What do you do when you are thirteen: pretend the moon is your friend, your mystic friend, but it also reminds her of her mother who came, like her, to get solace from nature - the field of wildflowers but ended up drowning in the river. Suicide ? perhaps ! the innuendo is there. The moon, the blue mystic moon, also failed the subject of this story, sad but oddly significant. I have enjoyed reading MINDLESS SHORT STORIES, and look forward to the next offering from this 'new' author. Well done, sir !

  3. Mindless short stories is more than it sounds, the stories are not mindless, but may leave you mindless after they twist and bend your perception of reality, and story telling. These stories will make you feel curiosity for characters and how the stories will end, sadness for characters, bewilderment at the human mind, fear of the human psyche, and much much more.

    There is rarely a dull moment in this collection of short stories by J.N-Turner, he will keep you turning the pages reading faster and faster for more and more of stories, and their twisted endings, beginnings, and everything in-between.
    With influences such as the great Edgar Allan Poe (evidenced by the story ‘the white rabbit’ and tribute to Poe’s ‘The Black Cat’) and probably others such as Alfred Hitchcock, and Stephen King, you can just guess what kind of ‘mindless’ you are venturing into.

    There are stories of all kinds, ranging from all kinds of lives, from the poor to the rich, the sad to the happy, confused to the sane, and much much more. J.N-Turner packs a punch to his first collection of short stories, and first published work. If you are looking for a good read, something that will grip you, and hold you there for hours until you finish the last page, you have found one of these books.

  4. This is a awesome book! it keeps you on the edge of your seat and you never want to put it down. Throughout the book there are many different types of stories which are full of suspense..action..and will even shock you at times. I'm the kind of person who struggles getting through books if there are even if it is a little bit boring. For this book however i read through the whole thing and as said before i didn't want to put it down. Check it out! its all over the web! just Google it and get one- trust me its completely worth it!!

  5. i like this book because it doesnt only have one twist to it it has many twists to it. this book eases you into different levels of emotion, it will be funny at one point then it will ease you into sadness and then take you to some scary things. this book is mind boggling and confusing but if you read over some parts again you will understand it and its so cool how the story goes.

  6. This book challenges you psychologically! Normally I like a book with a happy ending.....don't be fooled by this one! I really enjoyed reading it and you can easily get "lost in the story". There are so many short stories in this book that you are sure to find a favourite! I really thought I would like the story of "The White Rabbit" but, now I know why it is a tribute to Edgar Allen Poe! If you liked anything about "The Black Cat" you will enjoy this one! I found it kind of gross. I liked "Age Of Indifference" but, it was spooky to me since I work in the healthcare field.......If you buy this book you won't be disappointed!

  J.N-Turner was born in Tamil Nadu, South India.
  Four years later he was brought to Canada to stay with a family. Going into his teenage years, he found himself on the streets of Toronto causing trouble everywhere he went.
At age nineteen while laying on a cot in a cell he found peace that lit up his darkness through Jesus Christ. Although he was still in maximum custody he now felt more free then ever before; he had become a new man.
  Joseph now lives in Niagara with his two year old son and wife of 12 years who has supported his writing no matter how tough the times were. Having a passion for writing and an avid imagination since young he put his heart into becoming a author penning down all the things he imagined or dreamt.
  His first book 'Mindless Short Stories' takes the reader into a psychological twist of his own mind and those of others. If you do get lost, or experience a migraine, take a second to breathe and a pill, then return to reading, you'll be just fine. After all, it's just stories...Enjoy!
