  1.  Best expression of small emotions in human life 7 September, 2013 On
    This is the book that shows how good the author is in setting up the stage and then show the subtle emotions in the best of ways.

    Even thought the stories are just like one of your own or your friends, the way they are narrated makes you think about it.. even days after you read about it.

    Must read
