“Strangers in the Night“, written by Puneet Kumar, is a Short Stories compilation novel, published on June 14th 2018.
I received a complimentary copy of this book thanks to Puneet Kumar. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Within this book, you will find twelve stories, each a snapshot taken of life. From Strangers in the Night to The Widow, each snapshot offers the reader a chance to observe life as it happens.

One Morning in a Cemetery is the story of a man who falls asleep in a graveyard and dreams that those buried there hold a conversation with him. But does their wisdom get through to him?

In Jealous, Jason has been ill for years, but he takes a walk that makes him think about Teresa. A new dimen-sion is added when Ronny, a young boy Jason regards as a fool, teaches him what kind of a person he really is.
A neighbor listens as a woman tells about her hus-band and how their relationship has fallen apart. As the young lady’s tale unfolds, the neighbor comes to realize that Misery Loves Company.

This was the first novel I have ever read of this author, and since I like short stories books, I was very curious about the book.
Each story is different, so it’s hard to review a book that is a compilation, since the all have their own twists and turns, as well as their own voices and perspectives. All the short stories follow various characters through journeys and challenges. Honestly it’s that difference that I like about when I read a book like this.
All the topics that are talked about in this book are very interesting and made me question somethings about our society, life and people’s actions, and the good thing is that if you don’t like a character or their storyline, you can just go to the next story and it’s okay. Personally, I liked some story more than others, it happens.
The stories I likes, for example, One Morning in a Cemetery, that I quite enjoyed, had the connectivity I needed in that moment, they made me thing more, and I was curious about the characters.
Overall, I loved all the elements in this novel and how it opened topics up to conversation. And if you like short stories, you may want to check this book out.
