Dance to My Tunes
Author: Tanvi Sinha
Publisher: Half Baked Beans
Dance to My Tunes is a women-centric anthology of 18 short stories that touch upon various issues that undermine the capability of women and foster inferiority complex in their mind. Taut narrative and simple language make this book a breezy read. Therefore, it is a good bet if you have less time to spend with your kindle.
Dance to My Tunes, as the title says, shows us the light at the end of the dark tunnel. Most of the stories end in a happy happenstance and thus, that doesn’t quite seem palatable. It is contrary to what really happens in the real world. Life cannot be always viewed with rose-tinted glasses and thus, these stories might be disliked if one decides to find the pragmatic sense in them. The editing of the book needs another round, for there are a lot of errors. The author’s writing style is well-suited for the likes of not-so-avid readers.
A few stories did leave a lasting impression and those are The Flawed Daughter-in-Law, Must You Finish Your Rotten Tea? and Scarred. Overall, Dance to My tunes is an interesting collection of stories that tell a true story but some of them have an ending that sounds too happy to be true. A little element of realism would have done the trick.
Best wishes to the author!
