I fear people

i fear people
for the fear
of getting judged
by them
never leaves.

i fear people
because the replies
i get for not replying
to their
“hi”
and
“hello”
messages funckin’ kills me.

i fear people,
for i lack the art
of choosing
right ones
and sometimes
they choose
the wrong person
in me.

i fear people
because i’ve hurt,
many,
and they left
like they
never existed.

i fear people
because
they never understand
that some people
are still learning.

i fear people
because
most of them
don’t appreciate
the tiny effort
one put in making an art.

i fear people
and the society
we have made
as I too belong
to this big society
i fuckin’ fear myself
for i know
somewhere
someone
thinks the same
about me too.

i fear people,
i really do.

The world sways to an invisible music. We are the orchestra and our stories its symphony. And our loneliness is a song, which leads us through pasts and presents, towards new friends, and acquaintances…

That girl on the road swaying to an invisible rhythm…

That lady at the next table reading a book…

What’s their music?

A Symphony of Chance Encounters has suspense, love, rage, passion, contemplation and myriad human emotions sung into its stories.

A murderess. A child’s relationship with her father. An indifferent author. An unusual friendship. A couple in love. Writers exploring their creations. The fragrance of a new life; a new hope. A woman trapped in a life she does not want – will the rhythm be hers?

Their tunes merge. Their songs intertwine to create a symphony.

But, which tune do you sway to? Which melody lingers on your lips? Which story is yours?

Review

It’s basically an anthology of short stories and poems. There are 10 poems and 10 short stories where each poem is followed by a short story. Each story has a different genre, but despite that, I found the stories bit boring and not well crafted.

The title of the book is the unique one, but the cover is the biggest turn off for me. The cover seemed a bit chaotic to me and it could have been better.

Poor plot.

The book could have been better if the Author had given a little more attention to the plot of each story. The stories are very simple and plain. Poems are better than the stories.

Coming to the language of the book, honestly, I don’t find it good. The 1st two stories are written in a very poor language while the 3rd one is written way better than the previous two which seemed as if someone else has written that.

What did I like?

Honestly, the thing I liked about the book is some poems and the title.

What didn’t I like?

Cover page, the language used and the plot of the stories.

Overall, all I would say is, the book is a big “NO” for me and I would like to give it 1 star out of five.

Review

It’s a story about Jim Morgan, an international bestseller author who lives in the outskirts of  New York City. While having a conversation with God he gets to know about the 7 sins he had committed in his previous life. God gives him 7 days to rectify his mistakes or else he would die. The key to solve the mystery of the 7 sins he had committed in his previous life lies in his 6 best-seller books he had written so far.

The plot is something that is really amazing. There is this man who gets to have a conversation with God, the thought itself is so fascinating. To be honest, it’s among the best thriller books that I’ve ever read.

The story is very interesting and it made me want more from the book. It’s like, it made me hooked on to the book till the end. 

A different concept and an amazing story.

The writing style could have been better, the title is apt and the cover is simple yet beautiful.

Overall it’s a good read and thriller lovers you must give this Book a read. Okay, fine. Even those who doesn’t like thrillers can even pick this Book.
