Writing Style: 4/5
Do you have a story that you recite? Yes, you do, you may just not know. Here’s a tale rather a tiny journal of life that renders a thought in a readers’ mind as to what your story is indeed. Packed with anecdotes and tell-a-tale, this journal unfurls a spectacular journey of life wherein at every point you can place yourself and tell your own tale.
The author, in this journal has complimented a story from how we begin and eventually end. It exaggerates on the fact that every day is a story of survival of every being which we either hear or create or are bound to. This book is a practical memorandum of examples which guides a reader towards the journey within. Very creatively the author has intertwined products to stories which can be comprehended with ease. This book is no life saga and does not meet any traditional angle yet has every capacity of connecting to a reader. The content in itself is such intriguing that once you pick this up you are bound to flip through the end. There are ideas, facts, trivia and all-you-know-how all packed in just 60 odd pages.
While reading this book, I was chained to how beautifully the author has connected reality to an art of story-telling. It teaches a reader to not just sell a product but also himself metaphorically when it comes to convincing via communicating.
What I like about the book?
The language of the book is lucid; the author has tried to connect to the readers at every stage thus maintaining a very standard level of vocab. The easy pick and grab of examples and stories and their interplay in this book inspires quality story telling & self-exploration. I appreciate the author’s attempt in trying to create a guide through such a communicative mean.
What could have been better?
I wonder why this book is limited in context while it has the potential to make amazing dictum of the art of story-telling. The author could have explored further in choice of vocabulary since the tale falls a little informal. Besides the book is an absolute delight.
All in All:
This book is a must read for all those who live in self-doubt and meet an angle of breaking free. I would recommend this book especially to the teenagers and to school curriculum as this will give a slightly different insight of self-expression.
Overall rating: 3.8/5
