's review

it was amazing

A collection of 12 short stories tallying up to 172 pages was one of those 2 sitters reads for me. This book is for people who would love modest quick good read stories which will make muse over our decisions. Just like the story ‘The encounter’ where the character misconstrues and then realizes the cabby- each story brings a diverse crux to life. These stories are not as unpretentious as it seems. Most of the stories are thoughtful and thought-provoking.

As declared in the blurb, Singapore sling is a platter of many stories that the author has expressed through her senses and experiences. I loved the cover and the blurb gives the right eccentricity of what’s inside.

“I have come to know of your lover for whom your love turned ‘Undying’ so soon. I want to meet her and see what she has got that I couldn’t give you.”

This further amplified my curiousness and I hopped right inside the book and to my better surprise, the short story was such inexplicably thought-provoking. It’s filled with love, suspense, and politics.

The writing style is simple with no use of superfluous hefty words. Latha (author) has made sure that the sentiments inside are crisply defined. Stimulated during her two-decades-long stay in Singapore, these short stories are stunningly plaited bringing the real essence.

If you ask me what I missed, I would disparagingly say that there could have been a nip of wit added in the stream.

To sum it up, if you want a book of nifty short stories that are thought-provoking, written in eloquent language, then this is the best stake for you to must try

The platter is delightful indeed!
