Shades of Shadow ( Book Review )

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Shades of Shadow by Pushpam Singh

When the author states on the cover itself that it is a 'Poetic Journey' it might not really reveal what awaits you. Turn a few pages and you are already on that journey..

The language transports you altogether to a different world which is usually known as non-existing but then the author does make you feel safe there, amidst a world where the squirrels and all other animals are in peace, the tree blooms, the lake is so clear that one's reflection can be surreal!

The poems inside that take the story forward need an applause!

The flowery descriptions might sometimes deviate one from the main plot. It might not interest the ones who aren't deeply into poetry.

All in all.. it has content worth treasuring.
