Book Review: The Pause

Author: Monica Singh

The pandemic ‘paused’ our lives and changed it for good. It gave us time to retrospect and introspect our lives bringing to the surface hidden emotions we never knew existed.

The book is a collection of 7 short stories based on actual life experiences, partly revolving around the pandemic. The author has done a great job of bringing out the raw emotional connection that binds the reader to the intricacies of each story. Every story makes the reader ‘pause’ and think… it feels like the reader is treading through some portion of his life through these.

The basic crux of the book is to show that one can rise above all, and face every curveball that life throws your way to rise from the ashes.

A couple of those stories have the potential to be expanded to full-length novels. Overall an intriguing and poignant read.
