The book contains 10 short stories each having their own significance. The stories cover a wide range of topics such as corruption, sexual abuse, smuggling, etc. This collection of short stories is all over the place and I enjoyed most of them. They're unique and different and well-written and memorable, and they deserve to be read. The detailing of people and the surroundings makes you feel a part of the story, the characters that will stay with you forever. You'll be moved by some of the stories and other times just wish they would go on a little longer.

I love reading short stories and essays because I can reread them until I understand the message and appreciate the the art without getting lost. My favorite story is the one called Spark of the Divine. All the stories kept me engaged and wanting to read more. Overall, I truly enjoyed this book. I'm definitely looking forward to read more from the author.
