Read in March, 2012

I Am Me is not your average collection of short stories. It is decidedly
your above average collection of short stories. Just as the top half of the cover is a reflexion of the bottom half, the front half of the book is a reflection of the back half. Each story in the book has a 'reflection'. This is so hard to explain and so cool to read. Starting with the Author's Note and Acknowledgements and moving through the book, each story is retold in the other half of the book. The stories have the same title and format but each explores the topic in a different way.

Ram's writing style is engaging and thought provoking. Each of the stories captured my interest and I loved reading through the book story by story. I read title by title, turning the book at each story so that I could compare what the author had to say and I enjoyed reading the differences in the narrative. It makes for an almost philosophical experience of comparison.
