Coffin Humor by John Brinling
Review by Jeanette
This was an interesting short story in a ‘gotcha’ format. The story opens with Noah waking up in a coffin in a funeral home. The funeral director discovers him lying there and an ongoing discussion results. Noah can’t quite figure out how he ended up in the coffin or why he woke up. This is an imaginative and interesting short story with a cool twist. I don’t want to go into too many details because of the nature of the story.
I like John Brinling’s style. He keeps the reader entertained throughout and the story interesting. The only problem I had with the story was that I thought the wrap-up was too abrupt. It felt to me that there should be more, that the tension should build a bit higher before the reveal. I look forward to seeing more from John.
Nearly 4 stars.
