12 Precious Anecdotes of Life, by Payal Roy

Rating: 2.5 stars

Genre: Inspirational fiction

A set of short stories shared by ‘the lead fictitious protagonist Anita Maher’ and designed to either inspire you, or change your outlook on life.  The common theme here is to appreciate life and those around you and although the stories may have been well formulated it still needs some work.

My biggest concern with this anthology starts at the beginning when our narrator ‘Anita’ is described as a professional editor.  It’s clear as you continue to read that these stories have not been professionally edited – the speech is at times too formal and there are multiple grammatical errors.

Although inspiring, I just couldn’t get past this discrepancy.
