My Thoughts

A compilation of short stories that plunge us into a different society and it shows us the good, the bad and the ugly side to it.

The narration reminded me of a storyteller gathering individuals around to listen, it also served to remove me from the stories a little. However, it did nothing to remove the grit from the stories and the raw quality to them.

There were some hard to swallow topics, sad and sweet ones, it really was a mixed bag of moods. Nair did a great job infusing cultutural aspects into the stories in a way that wasn’t dropping information and taking away from the story.
