It's been a while since I've read an Indian author whose stories had me hooked instantly and especially a woman writer. Annie Zaidi's Love Stories really are about love- not that wishy-washy fairytale emotion that most people would like to be love- but love in all its messy , violent, oddly comforting glory. If we're being honest there are no happily ever afters- just let's see what happens.
And these stories are not just about love that's been found but also the quest for love. Although oddly enough, we never do stop looking do we?
It feels like the author has spent her time on earth studying minutely all the various ways humans love each other and, in loving ,hurt each other and themselves. The stories are all somehow instantly identifiable. I think every reader is going to have an 'aha' moment as they read these stories or at the very least a 'oh boy -been there, done that' moment. Either way I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Another thing I really liked about the book is that the writer seems to have been able to capture both a male and female perspective in several stories. This seems to me an especially hard thing to do, but Zaidi carries it out beautifully.
The stories have been brilliantly formed. However, a couple of them could have been better crafted I feel- more tightly written- especially the last one in the book.
Zaidi is definitely an author to watch out for.
