Book Review - Whispering Paths
by Lakshmi Menon
There are some books which we would like to read again and again, or just flip through them again, at a later date. I have quite a few of such books in my shelf, and "Whispering Paths" by Sneha Subramanian Kanta is one among them.
When Sneha informed me that the book, her debut literary presentation in a book format, is available on flipkart.com. I immediately placed an order, and within 4 days the book was in my hand. Once I started reading I didn't feel like putting it down until I finished it.
Sneha has experimented with different styles in the poems, as stated in her Preface, but I really enjoyed this style for a change. Some poems are long and some are short, but everything has a distinguished flavor. Like her poems, her short stories are also fascinating and touching, written from the heart. I absolutely loved these collections.
The book contains 38 poems and 6 short stories. Many of these poems are penned down from minute observations through a poet's eye.
All I can say is that "Whispering Paths" is an amazing book, that many book lovers would probably like to see in their bookshelf.
