What The Cover of Knitted Tales : A Collection of Emotions Says :
What forces an innocent girl to become a sex symbol? Her desires? Or cruel fate?
Is a lifetime enough—for avenging a betrayal? How do you hide secrets that never stopped haunting you?
Can vengeance and secrets of your past devastate your present? How can long-buried crimes of yours suddenly raise their head? Can sinning be saving?
Is your spouse your soulmate? What if they never understood your feelings? Can you still live with them?
Lastly, does life give only two options? Live or die? What if there is a third?
In her anthology, Knitted Tales: A collection of emotions, Rubina Ramesh tries to find answers to these questions that are often from the heart and yet make the mind ponder over the solution. Or is it the other way round? Either way, Knitted Tales is a bouquet of emotions that is bound to touch both your head and your heart.
What I Thought about Knitted Tales : A Collection of Emotions
Rubina Ramesh has chosen to weave together a fabric of intricate details on lives, feelings, and the various hues of life in day to day lives of people. Each tale is enjoyable and the time spent reading them is never a waste.
The stories are not all goody goody ones, rather they have an uncanny resemblance to what happens in our society and in the lives of people around us.
Each of the different stories have a different take-away for the reader and one is hooked until the last word in the last story is read.
The characters are well developed and the plots seemed to fit seamlessly in all the stories. I am in awe of writers who can spin short stories because there is so much to be told in so few words and that too without losing the essence of the story. I would gladly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading short stories and look forward to more stories from Rubina.
