Haikus are all the rage.
It is the era of nano tales and micro tales and flash fiction.
And with that point in mind, as the book blurb says too, "In this fast paced world where no one seems to have time to read a book with a precious tale, here's an anthology of micro tales for all types of readers. In a few words these tales will feed your soul in the modern way.", the book acts like a Social media page on paper: A Terribly Tiny Tale, or a Scribbled Stories.
A lot of the micro tales have been laced with that wit that makes it endearing to the reader. For instance, the book begins and ends with these tales, respectively:
My mind suffered from indigestion, writing was the only antacid available for me. And thus began my pen, spilling ink...
And my pen pauses, the indigestion I talked about is cured.
It is this sort of attention to words and thoughtful messages that make such a book worth reading. There are many tales that have a surprising twist, leaving the reader emotionally evoked.
That said, there are an equal number of stories that are predictable too. There's an equal number of witticisms that seem forced as there are the ones that appear fluid.
What makes this a good read, is the fact that after an overdose of this genre on social media, it was surprisingly refreshing to read this on paper.
