Book Review - Whispering Paths


Whispering Paths is a new book just out in the online market. It is a collection of poems and 6 short stories, as her debut to the literary world, by Sneha Subramanian Kanta.
I’ve just finished reading this amazing book which I got through flipkart, one of the popular online shops in India. I felt that her poems are ripe with meaning and fervor, and will touch your heart and soul.

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. Once you start reading this book it is difficult to put down.

All I can say is that Whispering Paths is an amazing book, that everyone would probably like to see in their bookshelf.

Those who want to buy this it is available at flipkart, and here is the link. (Sorry, I think at present it is available only in India)
