The Frozen Leaf by Vanshika Gupta

Blurb (as on Amazon):

‘The Frozen Leaf’ is a short story about life and death. Losing someone you love is traumatic; everything around brings back the memories of “that” person. The story talks about how death can influence and change someone’s life. It is fictional yet upholds real emotions.

Genre: Fiction/Short Story

Pages: 11

Format: Kindle eBook

Price: 49 INR/$0.99

My rating: 3.8/5

The relationship we share with our grandparents is always special. As we grow up, they grow older and though it is difficult to let go, we must accept their passing. This book depicts the unbreakable bond between a granddaughter and grandfather in one of the sweetest ways.

What I liked about the book:

-> It is an emotional ride- at times I was smiling and while at others I found my eyes moist because I was remembering my own grandpa.
-> The writing is simple and poignant and makes you want to cherish your relationships a bit more.
-> The cover is absolutely gorgeous. I think I might have given an extra .5 rating just for that.
-> The writing is coupled with the innocence of childhood and the raw emotions of an adult. The short yet impactful story beautifully helps us understand that we don’t have much time together with our loved ones.

What I did not like about the book:

-> I wish the writing was more compelling. For all its intents, the story did not touch my heart as much as it could or should have.

Quotable quotes:

-> Death is irreversible. Humans are replaceable but not forgettable.
