book review of The Cockatiel Confessions and Other Collected Works

My Book Review

This is a great collection of Short Stories which caters to various genres. There is a bit of sci-fi here, a bit of thrillers and a tad bit of humor too. The stories dwell into human psyche while pointing at our rational and irrational side of thought.

The book can be described as a basket of flowers with different fragrances, while you enjoy reading them all you might enjoy a few a bit more than the others.

A story about a futuristic world where money is replaced with life credits brings you close to the two faces of humanity – greed and love. While another story about vengeance reminds you of the naivety of youth.

All the stories have an element of surprise or futuristic outlook which sets this book apart from others. While I am not a big fan of sci-fi, as the book touches on a lot of elements and is true to its offering of showcasing human emotions it makes for a wonderful read.

A perfect book to read over a rainy weekend!

    Though I read science fiction, this story is very different from my usual reads. That said, it’s interesting to give it a read.
