"The Story Begins At The End" by Sujay is a collection of 16 beautiful short stories which focus on the theme of Love from different perspectives. Some of them have drama, loss, belonging, hope, etc.
"There isn't anything such as... True Love & there isn't a False Love... it is just LOVE" Agreed with the Quote, Because there is love. And love itself is true.
I liked the author's idea of narrating diverse love stories portraying wonderful and deep characters.
The author has beautifully described each and every story in a completely different setting, which gives us diversity within the concept of Love. Each story ends, is the beginning of a new chapter in itself. The stories are smooth and fast paced. Heartwarming, sometimes pleasantly surprising, simple yet so deep. Bitter sweet stories to fill your heart. They bring out various themes to focus- love unrequited, incomplete, complete, haunting, broken, love like no other. The different shades of love that the author explores is what makes the book complete.
My personal favorite is:
"The Messenger" in which we follow the messenger of death who falls in love with a guy, who she was supposed to take the day after. She starts having feelings for him after spending a day around him.
"The Panchamirtham" would have to be the most creatively written story in the entire book. The representation of our protagonist in this story, her blatant confidence with her sexuality and the subtle depiction of bisexuality had me completely astounded.
"The Woman in the Painting" which was so magical. It is a perfect portrayal of how we feel connected to the ones who are our own, even if we don’t know them. This story narrates how by feeling drawn to a woman in the portrait changed Rodger’s life.
What I absolutely loved about this collection apart from the smooth narration is the vivid atmospheric description. Each story carried a rich and imaginative scenery.
