's review

I couldn't sleep until I finished the whole collection. This book is just fantastic. And I loved reading it in one night. You know the feeling when you think you need to sleep and you close the book and something whispers 'Just one more?' in your mind? Exactly!

The writing is gorgeous and the stories are lovely too. Lesley has the knack of shocking the reader at the end of her realistic stories and holding the reader in a trance at the end of the few magical realism stories. This is a straight 5 STAR read for me. But I think I will wait a bit for the stories to sink in before deciding on my final rating. Because a 5 star for a short story collection is a BIG DEAL. As of now, I love the book. And I already want to re read it. Definitely a favourite for 2017.
