I’m on a reading spree this month. Hoping to read more books and review them as and when I get the time. I used to be a bookworm once upon a time. Anyway, keep reading folks!
As an e-book, I think the cover of this one is okay. It’s a simple bouquet as per the title of the book.
Name: Unspoken: A bouquet of Short Stories
Author: Sadhana Wadhwa
Number of pages: 32
Availability: Amazon (Buy the Kindle edition here)
The title was pretty much what the book contained; A bunch of 7 short stories. Unspoken were most of the endings. So, it was pretty apt. The subtitles were also good for the stories that followed each of them.
The author has written in simple English. I was happy not to find any grammatical errors anywhere in the book.
It was a general summary for all the stories. From the blurb, you won’t know what is happening in which story. But, that is okay. Just go ahead and read the short stories. Caution: If you’re Indian or know about the culture of India, you will understand the stories more than would a non-Indian.
Without taxing your brain too much, this is a good read while you’re travelling or need to quickly read a few stories on your way to the market (if it’s far away from your house).
The stories are simple and most of them had happy endings.
7 stories are not too less nor too much to read in one go.
I would love to suggest that the author write more and release a paperback book with all her stories in it.
One of the stories could be continued to a happier ending. Or the story needed more to it.
This book was a perfect read to continue my night reading habit. It was short and I finished 3 stories in one night and left the rest for the next one, only because I did not have another book waiting to be read yet. Or perhaps, I was just lazy.
