  • The cover is extremely pretty. It is so beautiful that I stared at the cover for a couple of minutes.
  • The blurb is extremely interesting.
  • The plot is very unique and at the low points it even filled my eyes with tears.
  • It is pretty enticing and gripping that you would finish it in one go.
  • Character development is is done on a good note.
  • The two different timings have been represented in a way that makes the reading smooth without breaking the flow.
  • The twist is amazing but what I loved was the conclusion and would definitely recommend this to others.

Review

  • The cover is extremely simple but it is extremely attractive.
  • All all the poems are extremely good.
  • Starting from narration to underline emotions there is a myriad of images that will flow through your mind while you read the book.
  • The the poems are not just written but have a lot of weightage and knots within themselves.
  • Despite the concepts and emotions mean so so complex the language used is lucid and easily comprehensible.
  • There is love, despondency, elation fervor, perturbation all at the same time.

You don’t need to fear the monsters lurking under your bed. The only monster you need to be fearful of is the one buried deep within your own self.

Small is big Vol II

#qotd: How many of you like tiny tales?

Well I love them, especially because in a few words, phrases and sentences they create an aura of an entire storyline which is relatable almost every time.Small is big Vol II is a book by Rafaa Dalvi which is a collection of 100 micro tales.Rating:⭐⭐⭐🌠/🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 (3.5/5)This potpourri of tiny tales is mainly of the genres romance and thriller. The book is arranged in a lexicographical manner with the letters J, K,U, X, Y & Z not being in the run.The ones which I really liked are:

  • Abandon
  • Allow
  • Bully
  • Castle
  • Family
  • Familiar
  • Fat
  • From dusk till dawn
  • Free
  • Guilty
  • Look
  • Memory
  • Peace
  • Survival of the fittest
  • Touch

While “Abandon” tells about the wish monster, “Touch” talks about the perverted monsters we have in our society who takes advantage of a small child and take pleasure by destroying their innocence.The book is a good read although at one or two places I didn’t understand the inner meaning but overall it’s a good endeavour to go through the micro tales once.

Review

The cover of the book is extremely simple with just the title and some drones flying which justifies the content of the book. The plot is a bold concept and also a new one. It talks about how gradually technology and artificial intelligence will take over our lives. Mostly the advantages or good effects have been discussed extensively; the disadvantages have not been thrown light onto quite well. The narration is pretty good and the vocabulary too. I am unsure whether beginners can read it, unless they are technology freaks. The book is divided into sections here being five which are further divided into several chapters. Topics like genetics and nanotechnology has been discussed extensively and has given me a new look towards it. The quotations from famous technicians is a new way of not Letting the readers getting bored. I am personally a student of Mathematics and I really liked the third module/section – The Magic of Math. I never understood Bitcoin until now (after reading the book). I would recommend others to give a read.

  • The cover is nice.
  • I am not a fan of non fiction books but the title provoked me to pick it up and I wasn’t very happy picking it up.
  • The preface lists as to why the book is unique but it’s all the same.
  • The chapter worth spending time on is Chapter 9 on how to eliminate negativity in your life.
  • The grammar has a lot of errors and has to be rooted out in order to make the read a smooth one.
  • The second module is better than the first one as it isn’t so monotonous like the former.
