I am never sure what I think about short books on Amazon, often when I get reading them and get to the end I feel that really the story should be one book, there has been no real end to the storyline and it is more like the end of a chapter than the end of the book. You are then left with the problem of payout out more money and buying the next in the series or deciding that it is not worth it. After that you have to weigh up how many there is in the series, $1 for a book might sound really good value but when you find out it has 10 short sections in the series and some are $2 you can find yourself paying £15 plus for a book, so it is no longer the original bargain you thought you were getting. Something else that happened to me recently was I got to book 6 of one of these series and the the author has vanished, stopped writing in 2012! I looked on Goodreads and found other people had hit the same spot as me, the story is mid plot and now we have no ending, one lady had even found the official facebook for the author and tried to contact her with no luck. Should Amazon still be selling these? I did wonder if I would get anywhere putting in a complaint to them and asking for a refund because they are really not fit for purpose. No one buys half a book do we? What are your thoughts on these styles of writing?
