Afifa Shamim’s book reviews

A quick read about ugly but too good husband, a pretty wife who is in misery upon her choice a handsome cousin who was a fool at first then a desperate lover in the end. A happy ending with the husband & wife going together in the end. It was not so engaging but when once began with it so one must should complete it for the sake of knowing the story. The writing style is brilliant as expected.
Some quotes from the story that i admired
"It is all over. Let it rest. The pain of to-day and tomorrow is enough for us. We have borne yesterday; why should we want it back again?"
What happiness is so keen as one's briefest pain?

I am not a science fiction fan, but this was an amazing read as there was no scientific terms to ponder upon. An enjoyable read with witty dialogues and circumstances interwoven together in such a way that it was not easy to put it down easily, though it was a short story. It was an entertaing read.
And I got an awesome quote in this short story which is quite endearing.

A short story full of sentiments I would say. Thoroughly well written and was all about taking taking decisions at the right moment and never regretting it. (as i assumed)

I like this book,love the character Terry a sacrificing lad but hate his girlfriend who was total ninny.France was good,a girl with moral values who refuse to marry a divorced man as marriages cant be broken only with a piece of paper.Love the climax.Lady dynely was unbearable.Eric too.All in all a dramatic and tragic story you should read yourself to judge.

Claire Duffy - Snarky Protagonists, Dark Facts Blended With Fiction, and Suspenseful Crime-solving
FEATURED AUTHOR - Claire Duffy was a screenwriter for over a decade until she caught herself cycling past a production company and giving it the finger. She decided she didn't like the person the film industry was turning her into. Duffy quit, took a temporary job at a daycare in Stockholm, and wrote her first novel while her class of one-year-olds took their afternoon nap. Through blogging that story in daily chapters, she discovered indie publishing and never looked back.
