    So here's my uick thoughts on The Six Pack ThreeMarisa Maepu '88 I enjoyed this nicely told and the right length for the material it covered Maybe the ending is unrealistic but I didn't have a problem with it while I was reading itSue Wootton Virtuoso This was very well written my only reservation is that the harried businessman who's alienated from his own life is something of a stock character in New Zealand fiction Sue Wootton is a very good poet I think this story shows that she is a good short story writer as wellAroha Harris Write Poetry I like poetry and I enjoyed these poems especially Rain Again One of the things I like most about the Six Pack series is that they include poetry as well as proseIan MacKenzie Mirror Mirror While it's good to see a genre story included the scenario of this story is almost exactly the same as a prominent plot element of the first season of the TV series Heroes Although Ian MacKenzie has definitely got talent this story was a miss for meDavid Geary Gary Manawatu This was by far my favourite story in the collection Such a mixture of humour art world satire sly political comment and verbal exuberance is all too rare in New Zealand fiction This makes me want to read of David Geary's workKate Duignan Swallow Yet another in the long list of sensitive young artist struggles with difficult family which doesn't appreciate hisher genius stories by New Zealand authors Katherine Mansfield did it first and best Kate Duignan puts words together beautifully but I'd prefer a story with oomph to end the collection

    Took this along on a tramping trip as was light east reading I forget how unsatisfying I find short stories Doesn’t feel like proper reading They were however for the most part interesting especially Gary Manawatu

    The Six Pack Three brings New Zealanders another six kiwi short story offerings for 2008 five chosen by judges one by popular vote The first offering '88 shows a lot of promise beginning well But all the credibility Maepu builds with the reader is instantly destroyed with the hopelessly idealistic climax Are we really meant to believe a teacher talks a kid out of committing murder with a lecture on ancient Greek symbolism? gagWooton's Virtuoso however is a charming piece of work capturing the atmosphere of New Zealand's capital and the despair of an overworked lawyerAs for Harirs' collection of poetry I'm not a big poetry fan and her collection failed to convert me However I did enjoy Defining moments in her history although that’s probably because it resembles a short story than a poemMacKenzie's Mirror Mirror is easily my favorite out of this year's collection telling the story of a man struggling with himself with all the darkness and suspense of a good urban legend As for the last two Gary Manawatu was amusing but not really to my taste and Swallow is confusing and forgettableSo is it worth reading? Given the range of stories presented everyone is likely to find something to enjoy in this year’s Six Pack and for 6 you’re bound to get your money’s worth

    Great introduction to New Zealand and New Zealand short literature

    Six short stories from six New Zealand writers I thought they were OK but not great Lots of relatively minor slice of life type stories Harris' poetry I thought was dreadful
