Breaking Free: A Novella and other Stories is a simple and fathomable collection of stories that are thoughtful, mindful read. I have read a few short collections but this collection was different in a good and sublime way. Given stories are themed or perhaps theme based that automatically uplift the character sketch as well as the storytelling in each of these stories.
There are forty stories that hold gravity to stand apart in this collection. The stories are really short that give us an underlying edge of our day-to-day circumstances.
Breaking Free is a representation of its name. The effort being made here is to break free from the norms and dominancy created or rather imposed on the characters. Each story has no room for beating around the bush and I’m glad the author didn’t try to add characters that keep the book just beautifully precise. The character has their own ways of winning the reader’s hearts. There are some fun quirky stories that mellow the high density theme discussed through these characters.
Breaking Free doesn’t tend to take much of your time to make you feel visionary.
Breaking Free heaves a fresh air of a light yet impactful read because of its appreciable smooth writing. The writing style was different; rather the presentation of stories was something that took me aback. You could really feel the emotions beneath a simple conversation within two characters.
The author is very crafty to depict the real life scenarios as short stories. These are stories that the readers could really connect. Writing is self-expressive and it talks for its own words. Though simple, these stories stay.
In totality, the author has a done a commendable work in bringing the real life talks into these multi-layered journey for good. These stories depict life and people in general.
