    1. I really quite like this one. I wrote it about ten years ago and it's still one of my favourite short stories. I humbly submit that it deserves a better average than it has here :)A rather less violent story that you might be expecting.Give it a try. It's quick! It's free. It's here:marklawrence/story/qu



    2. 2 STARSThis was not a story which I was expecting. It was just like its title "Quick" or should I say very Quick. I didn't get many part of story due to its quickness. QUICK OVERVIEWIt's a story of kitchen boy (works in a restaurant) who has been sent to bring quails' eggs from Madam Jimla who lives on Street Seven. When he reach there, he come to know that Madam knows everything about him like: why he is here? After he gets the eggs, he begins to go back during which he hits a guard with whom h [...]


    3. An extremely entertaining short story by one of my favourite authors. Fantasy in an asian setting, I wish it was longer


    4. I added it, I read it, and it is done in short order. Nothing can be quicker than Quick. A fun little short story, where opportunities are high or low for someone who's quick enough. Not bad at all. And I did like the ending.Final rating: ★★★★☆ – Really liked


    5. A great little story that shows things can be viewed from different perspectives.Not everyone wants to rule the world, sorry Tears for Fears. I enjoyed seeing a main character who is special but not so prone to violence although I must admit, that bloodthirsty bastard Jorg will forever be my favorite.



    6. This short story was AWESOME. Quite easily the best short story I've ever read. It could easily be turned into a book, or novel, or an entire series. PLEASE MARK, turn this into a novel.


    7. 3.5 Not much to say. Nice story albeit really short. I just like his other stories a lot more so it's kind of underwhelming. But that's just me and it's far from bad.


    8. Forgot that I had read this quite a while ago. It was fantastic! Literally fast-paced and fun to read. I want a full novella for this storyline! It was so engaging but what else would you expect from Mark. Sometimes I find myself more impressed by Mark's short stories than I am by his full novels, but for different reasons. He manages in less than 4k words to give you the perfect build of a protagonist you can't help but to root for, with the right balance of reveal so that you want to know more [...]


    9. The big problem with this read it is a short story. I want more of it. More. Should probably give this one 5 stars. What Mark Lawrence delivers is very fast, action-packed, with a little mysterious under-tone. Hiro, the kitchen servant, is destined for some greatness for which he does not yet know. This short episode is only a glimpse of the future. And maybe a full length novel? :-)







    10. Nice. Wish it was longer. It's been too long since I read some fantasy fiction in an Asian setting (even this short).





    11. It played like an anime piece in my head. I didn't get it though.Hiro chose his smaller dream of becoming good at his server-boy job than a chance at becoming king. I didn't get the point of this. Something like the Alchemist? Find happiness in what you have? Still don't get it.






    12. The short-story that lives to its title. I'd really love for the setting to be presented more thoroughly, as it is a novelty for me when it comes to Mark Lawrence's writing.
