Film Fanatic That Loves To Read

First off, that is me on the left (I'm pictured with my niece). Okay, I'm not exactly the biggest book nerd out there, but books have been a very important part of my life. It has helped me through things like, ohhhhhh, real life maybe. In my hours of triumph to the darkest of tragedies, books have always been important to me. Depending on my mood at a given time - like many of us - will depend on what kind of book I'm reading. Reading opens the mind and makes the world more understandable in its complication. Simply put, I love the world of books...........

I Am an Executioner: Love Stories - Rajesh Parameswaran

"I Am An Executioner - Love Stories" is a collection of short stories by author Rajesh Parameswaran in which love, oddly enough, plays a part in all the stories. Just not in the traditional sense. We have one story told from the point of view of a tiger, and another from an insect. All stories are interesting, but admittedly, the "footnote" story I'll have to probably read a couple more times to "get it". 

 

Though I can't say I was blown away by this collection, I liked it enough to where I am very much looking forward to more books by Rajesh Parameswaran.
