Long Story Short answers these questions and many more! These stories are about characters who fight personal battles and win. They are a metaphor for the heroic spirit an average individual exhibits. They narrate life events that mirror the battles readers are likely to face in their regular lives and offer deeper underlying lessons. You will definitely find glimpses of your life in these stories!
The cover is beautiful. The title is apt for the plot.. It’s a collection of long short story. The narration is perfect. The best thing about the book is that it flows very smoothly and without any loop holes. As the author points it right in the foreword that in a busy schedule one has now-a-days it is hard to find time during the day to read a book. It is then, when a quick and refreshing read like short stories play their part and keep us entertained. It does that for me and I guess many more share the same views. One might feel the emotions of those characters while they read. The author has done a good job in narrating all the stories with ease. The language is simple to follow which make it easier for the reader to connect to the characters in the stories and resonate with them.
