About the author:
Nitya enjoys expressing herself through written words and loves reading and writing intriguing and dark stories. Born in India, she spend most of her life in the sunny city of Dubai where she currently resides with her family with lots of sunshine and happiness around her. She is currently on a break from her corporate job.
What the Eyes See is her debut book.
My take on the book:
What the Eyes See is a collection of seven short stories with a common theme of dark, horror background with surprise twists that are bound to stump the reader. All stories have different backdrops and a very surprising climax though the underlying theme is predominantly horror and suspense. The author covers diverse topics like Artificial Intelligence, Dystopia, Mind Reading, Hallucinations, et al.
The cover and the blurb are intriguing so are the themes for each of the stories. The suspense is built well till the end for each of the stories and revealed with an interesting twist. For a debut, it is appreciable that the author picked different concepts and stories instead of choosing a risk-free theme. The easy and conversational style of writing will be a plus of beginners and novices however, that can be a disadvantage for seasoned readers as they might expect better narration pace and style.
If you are looking for a collection of short stories filled with good suspense and thrills, then this is a must read.
