Book Review : Metro Diaries Part 2 by Namrata



Book Review: Metro Diaries Part 2 by Namrata


 


 


I liked it. A collection of 20 touching everyday-life stories.


Stories that caress your heart and pull some strings. Make you stop reading and make you feel nostalgic and thoughtful at times. You begin to imagine yourself in the stories ... especially since quite a few (or is it all?) are written in first person narrative


Want some heart-touching eye moistening read ... pick this up. 


It is easy to connect with the stories and you are drawn to the inner demons of the characters in the story. The first person narration makes it personal and very real you … the reader.


I read these mushy and emotional stories after a series of high octane action thrillers (Jack West Jr. series of 3 novels by Matthew Reilly) so the impact was drastic. From Hollywood style action to highly emotional and touchy stories. I enjoyed reading them.


 


Here are some quotes from Metro Diaries Part 2 ... take a test drive !!


 


At times in life we always see what we are being shown and not what lies behind that cloak of disguise. We believe all that comes our way without doubting that there could be a trick or maybe just a hallucination. – Charlatan


 


Life they say is a like a jigsaw puzzle and we are all like those pieces trying to find where we fit in. – Labour of Love


 


Perhaps she had forgotten the thumb rule for survival here. There is nothing called yours here.  No will, no desire, no dreams, no ambitions….nothing. Not even your name. – The Plummet


 


What else do you do when you are a teenager? Life seems to be one long party full of fun and frolic with your best friends all around. You just know your world is full of rainbow colours; sweetness of chocolates filling it and abundant beautiful dresses to doll you up.  Love and relationships take a different meaning altogether now making you look at everything around including yourself in newer light. – Love v/s hate


 


I always felt I knew what I wanted in life. But today I realized how wrong I was. I was chasing mirages as the reality kept going away from me and now I am left with nothing in hand – Rags to Riches


 


People make memories and then reach a phase where memories make people! – Mou Athena
