The Boundaries Of Sanity by Mira Saraf - Book Review


Author : Mira Saraf

Genre : Fiction

Rating : 4.5/5

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mira Saraf is an English and Psychology graduate. She works for a family business and outside office she is a an avid reader, poet and a writer. She has various achievements and an inspirational journey.

ABOUT THE BOOK

"The Boundaries of Sanity " is an intense and dark read. It consists of five short stories which talks about people's struggle with life and their inner conscience. This book talks about negative emotions and how these negative emotions can be overcome with courage and determination. Considering the depth of each story it is quite strenuous to understand. The protagonist in each story comes out at the end as a real fighter whether it is a women who got stranded in an abandoned house on a seashore and found comfort in the memories of her past or someone who was fighting with her inner self image and realised her self worth, or someone who was buried in senseless worries and realised life is too short so enjoy to the fullest and while reading all this it gives you a sense of hope. 

MY TAKE ON THE BOOK

This is one book which I wanted to finish it in one go. And this realization came just after reading the first one. If you leave any story in between you will loose the track and moreover you wouldn't be able be feel the same emotions. There are times when you feel irresolute about your own understanding that you would like to read again and again to be very sure about your interpretation.  There is so much of depth in each story that you cannot understand if you don't feel the connect with the story and with the characters.

The characters, feelings and thoughts are so real that you would be able to relate with it.  Each story leaves you with a question mark and that after thought "This can happen with anybody" will give you goose bums. Being a Psychology student writer had portrayed each and every emotions beautifully.

This read might leave you with unhappy and dejected kind of feeling but it's worth a read. So I feel if you are emotionally intelligent person then this book is an apt read.
