Little Stories is a collection of 11 short stories. Jeff Roberts takes a look at life and the challenges it offers. Roberts demonstrates that we only think we are in control. The best stories are the ones that look at relationships between man and woman. One story discusses a young couple living together, more than roommates--but less than committed. The female spends time with an old flame, forming a rift between the two roommates. In another story, a married couple decides they need to spend time apart. When the husband returns early, his wife does not show the sentiment he expected.
Roberts writes in descriptive manner. He conveys the hurt, confusion, and disappointment his characters experience. Each story expresses the depth of emotion that we each feel when we face a situation gone wrong. After pondering this read, I feel that Jeff Roberts is demonstrating death. Death of a man, death of a pet, death of a relationship, death of trust….. Roberts is an extremely talented author, and we will see more of him in the future.
