Book Review: Small is Big by Rafaa Dalvi



A quick read!
I have read micro tales on social networking sites, where very few words are used to tell a tale.This is my first experience with a book of micro tales. It was indeed a different experience. You could stop and pick the book any moment, and the flow wouldn’t be jarred. But of course, you wouldn’t have the flow as it doesn't have one. It’s a book with very many tales of such small portions. Certainly intriguing and leaving your imagination go crazy. Some tales move a chill down your spine. Some leave you pondering. And some laughing. A style every reader should try reading once. Micro tales is a new emerging form of writing. Very hard way of writing as it has to encompass a whole tale in few words. Kudos to the author for coming up with a book with 100 tales.

Blurb:
Have you always wanted to read more, but you could never finish that one book?
You kept putting it off, hoping you would find some free time, only to find out that months or even years went by and you saw little progress.
That’s about to change!
With Small is Big, Rafaa Dalvi has created a potpourri of 100 diverse micro tales (140 characters or less) that will provide you a rich experience in easy-to-digest fragments and urge you to read one page after another before you finally finish the book.
And the best part is that there’s a story for everyone, including YOU!

You rested on my lap, opened yourself before me and shared your fantasies with me.
Then the stories ended and you turned back into a book.

They’re lying in bed.
