Review:

Oasis in the Desert and other stories by Arushi Vats a collection of 9 short stories that will teach you a lesson. Each story is different trying to convey a message to live each moment in life. Each story is based on different themes that keep the reader engaged throughout.

I liked how the author came up with different storylines that one could relate to. Each story is refreshing making the reader think about their actions twice. Yes, you never know how life may take a turn and the author wonderfully expressed that through her stories. Based on the themes of Love, hope, loss and relationships the author blends the emotions well. My favourite stories are The imprisoned Cocoon, Real touch and Reborn. I loved these stories.

The simple and engaging writing style of the author and fast-paced stories filled with drama makes this book more interesting. There were some stories that I thought could have a beautiful climax as they ended up incomplete. I wanted to know more about what will happen next there.

All the stories are simple and appealing. The crisp narration and varied interesting plots make this book interesting. Not to forget the beautiful cover!.
Love reading short stories? Want to pick up some light reads? Go for it.

    This story talks about hope and finding meaning of our life. It shows that even if something does not work out the way we want it to, we should still have faith and continue living our life.
