I bought this book because an author whose novels I love compiled it and it’s raising money for a great charity. If I’m honest I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy it as I’m not really a huge fan of short stories but this book may just have converted me because it is simply fabulous. The stories are all brilliant and even though they are all under one hundred words they have such power. I actually cried over two of them and nodded my head in recognition of the emotion in others. There is somethi ...more

It felt like a lot of the stories relied too much on the songs that inspired them to set the mood or explain things. Some were good, but I wish more had been able to stand on their own.

Love the concept, love the idea and love many of the tales. Consumed in under two hours on a Sunday morning, this collection has seriously inspired me and was a really fantastic read. I may not look at YouTube in the same away again but I will look Nik Kershaw up (he may be before my time).

100 RPM is not a collection you should miss out on, it made me want to sit down, listen to my favourites and write like crazy, a feeling which hasn't come to me for a very long time - wonderful.

Completely biased rating as I'm in this.

I loved the concept behind this book and downloaded it because a couple of authors I talk to on Twitter have work in this anthology.

It's a brilliant little book to dip in and out of, but I chose to read it all in one go. I have not given it a star rating as there are some stories I would give five stars to and others I wouldn't. I've also come to the conclusion that star ratings don't really mean much without a context.

It was fun to try and guess which song had inspired the author before peeking

This is an interesting collection of flash fiction inspired by songs. There are 100 stories that are 100 words or less. The songs were listed after each piece, but I would have preferred they were written underneath the titles since I wanted to “hear” the songs in my head while I read. I recognized many of the songs and want to look up a few I’ve never heard of. Some pieces were stronger than others, in my opinion, but that’s how it goes with any anthology. Overall, 100 RPM is a great read.

I've found that with microfiction, sometimes I get what the story is about and sometimes I don't. And these stories were no exception, especially because many were based on songs I've never heard of.

Nonetheless, they were a quick, enjoyable read, perfect for the Kindle app on my phone. And I don't regret buying this book because it's for a great cause.

My friend wrote one of the pieces in this book. It was short but effective. I have never read a book of short stories that were max of 100 words. I never knew you could relay something in such few words. Very clever.

No stars for this anthology. I had very high hopes for it when I downloaded it to my Kindle. Sad to say, it disappointed on every level. I hate giving bad reviews, but I had no option in this case.

I love reading short stories and one of my stories is in this compilation so it was a winner for me from beginning to end.

Not really my thing, stories of 100 words, an OK book to dip in and out of I suppose!
