This book is a collection of short stories and a quick read which has 8 beautiful short stories along with a bonus reading where language is lucid enough for any reader to understand. Let me first tell you that this book is for the readers of all age group.
Cover page and other photos in this book is very creative and beautiful. I would like to mention and appreciate the effort of Khushi Chauhan for this. It is very creative, amazing and thoughtful.
Apart from those 8 short stories, there is something called “bonus reading” which I have throughly enjoyed reading. It was like an icing on the cake. Very thoughtful and a brilliant idea. It shows the different creativity of author.
Out of those 8 short stories, which is based on different story line, background, characters etc, I personally liked “Unlike the the movies” because it was totally a different and a fresh idea, “self- happiness above all” as this is much relatable story in the society and reader can easily connect to them, and “No Witness” because I was speechless the way this was narrated or written. It shows the strong will power of author to develop such a powerful character. Amazing. Simply brilliant!
I liked this line from the book “We’re all so result-oriented and hesitant to take blames.”
It was a great and quick read. Best wishes to author for next book.
