    One thought on “Most Men (A Short Story Collection #2)”

    1. From the author:MOST MEN is my first novella and second collection of short stories. I hope you enjoy it. The following is my brief synopsis of the book:"History dwarfs the accomplishments of most men. Don't be like most men." It was his father's dying message to Joe Richman. Joe had a rewarding career, but lived his adult life wondering if he ever lived up to his father's expectations. Joe and his wife Claire retired to Pine Lake Country Club in the Blue Ridge Mountains nestled beside a 1,000-a [...]

    2. Shoultz Shines with Pedal-to-Metal PlotsShoultz's writing has a solid, methodical feel to it. Plot-driven, with the occasional pit-stop to smell the roadside daisies, he pulls back onto the asphalt and brings the story home in high gear."Most Men" has ample plot twists in a murder mystery with a children's group home in play. The author's soft heart is readily apparent, an emotional touchstone for his main characters. Pride and virtue are measured by the pound.Some of the short stories are brief [...]

    3. “Don’t be like Most Men.” Joe’s father’s last words never made much sense to him until he was put in the position of questioning his life choices having taken early retirement.Like all good novellas Most Men succeeds in telling a story that is nicely paced, with rounded characters and detail enough to leave the reader satisfied. Add-in the twists as the story unfolds and it makes for a great read.The accompanying short stories in the book were equally as good, and I may never eat a pum [...]

    4. I borrowed this title via the Kindle Unlimited program.I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of stories about Most Men. Thoughtfully developed characters and intriguing details of small town America enhance each story. Certainly pick up this collection if you are in the mood for short stories.

    5. I enjoyed "Most Men" even more than D.R. Shoultz's other short story collection, "It Goes On," and I LOVED "It Goes on." Shoultz is a gifted writer with an uncanny ability to simplify complex themes, combined them and turn the whole thing into page-turning prose. While the book has 7 superb short stories, about half of its 217 pages is filled with more of a novella, the story of Joe, a businessman forced into early retirement who is itching to "stay in the game." Joe is a complex character, a bi [...]

    6. The description of this book sparked my curiosity, a novella and a collection of short stories, all in one book. How is that possible? After reading, Most Men, by DR Shoultz, I am impressed. The author was able to do just that. The first part of the book contains a novella that is suspenseful and well-written about the retired life of Joe, a man who wasn’t quite ready to retire and his wife, Claire, who felt she should use her retirement doing something useful in the community. Joe on the othe [...]

    7. I am always intrigued by short stories and find myself in awe of writers who can produce what seems like an entire novel, into so few words. Such is how I have felt reading Most Men by DR Shoultz. The first part of the book comprises a novella that grabbed my attention immediately. Being a story that I would place in the suspense or crime genre, I felt like I was reading a much longer novel, with the way the language was used to impressively describe people and the events that unfolded. Beyond t [...]
