Review of “The Broken Necklace”

Published July 29, 2013 by arabian roses

Review 01

The Broken Necklace

Short Stories are quite different than a full fledged novel. In a novel the author enjoys the liberty of giving all the detail of the characters and circumstances. But in a short story, the author has to be very keen to tell the story within a very few pages and at the same time has to give a background account of the characters and circumstances without wasting the pace of the story.

“The Broken Necklace” certainly has that characteristic of a short story. In three pages you have created two characters; the reader is very clear about Camellia and Ahmed. How they look, how they feel, the bondage of love between them, their adopted son, Ahmed’s mother’s grief for a blood-grandchild, everything. The message is very clear. Story line is crisp, very convincing, easily understandable.

Now, a few things to remember. As I told you earlier, you need to work on your Punctuations and formatting. If I think from a reader’s point of view, text formatting matters a lot while reading a book. Poorly formatted texts are very difficult to concentrate on and texts with perfect formatting and stylish looks are eye pleasing to the readers.

Now, coming back to the story; storyline is clear. But, there is a scope for the readers to make out, what actually happened to that necklace (??). That scope raises a lot of questions. But, as a reader, I prefer more clarity on the background of a story.

Now, it’s time to rate the story. I give it a seven out of ten. One more point could have been added had the formatting been better.

My first poem in Spanish :D Cuando llueva / When it rains

Published July 20, 2013 by arabian roses

Cuando llueva

Cuando llueva, escribiré tu nombre en suelo

 Para que  viaje tu generosidad

  A través de las venas de tierra

Regando mi  tímido  simiente para convertido

En   jazmín blanca  perfumando   noches  tristes

O en generosos arboles alimentando a los pobres

Sin arrogancia y sin humillación

Porque en tu nombre , habitan  los secretos del amor .
