The forbidden one is a fresh take of short stories involving the human behaviour under the forbidden situations and circumstances.
The stories provide the glimpses of human psychology with a roller coaster ride of emotional conflicts within oneself.

The Cover:
As rightly said, do not judge the book by its cover. The book is not something what it seems from its cover page. The title word “Forbidden” is referring to the unethical or wrong doings, unusual conducts by human beings under the specific situations.

The Stories:
The stories are emotional; way of writing is quite simple and easy.
However I felt that some stories were monotonous and quite predictable. Author should work little more towards making the stories more interesting and binding for a reader. Some narrations seem dragging at some point of times.

The effort by Author to get into the forbidden tales is praiseworthy. The stories are real life and do not seem work of fiction at all. Human behaviour under the given circumstances and emotional conflicts are nicely presented by the author The stories deliver the right messages in the end. The highlighting factor is when you find yourself rooted to the story and wondering what next? The story suddenly comes to end and it will leave further happenings to readers to imagine.

I thank the author Zaarra Khader for providing me the review copy of her book.
This review is my own views about the book and in no way biased.
