    1. MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS I received this as an R4R I love short stories so I was sure to like it And I thank the R4R community and the author It was not horrible, that is the thing I am giving it two stars because it was very confusing to me To many names and when referring to he or she I was not sure who the person narrating the story was speaking of The narration was off This story could have been told simply It was the longest 19 pages I have ever read This story appears to be about a father and [...]

    2. Author s Hand downThanks to the shut up and read community as well as the author for lending me a copy to read and reviewAs much as i want to appreciate the efforts of the writer i am also distressed because of nothing good to say about the whole book except maybe that the plot ended in a unique twist which was quite nice.What i did not like about the book is the language itself which is not at all narrative and in fact leave a impression of having to make an effort to understand and read betwee [...]

    4. Copy given in exchange for a review from Group Read it Reap I have never read a short story like this, but then I am hardly a short story connoisseur I have read some that have been dramatic and impactful and some that have been week and lifeless I am not exactly sure where this story falls I like reading stories set in other countries, especially India I find India endlessly fascinating To me, I find the culture a beatifically heartbreaking microcosm of mankind s strengths and weaknesses India [...]

    5. Thanks to the Read It and Reap Program for giving me a copy of this short story to review.The best thing about this story was the descriptive details The author was able to paint quite a colorful picture of the actions occurring That being said, the author perhaps could have done better by this story through expanding it into a novel or a longer short story In my opinion, short stories need to be anecdotal and to the point, leaving a lesson to be learned or any sort of memorable impression on th [...]

    6. A well written novella I would definitely recommend this author The pace of writing is adequate and while the tension between the father and son is explained There are so many unanswered questions I don t mind that about a story It makes it dynamic and realistic We all do things that puzzle others and make decisions that may look questionable The only drawback is that there was no time to really understand any of the characters It is like a snippet that makes you want to delve deeper An excelle [...]

    7. I enjoyed reading it A change in the weather is a tale of an elderly man reflecting back on his life and scarred relationship with his son, the reasons behind it unfolding as the story progresses I liked the story and the lyrical prose in which the writer has depicted the contrast of geography and culture England and India in the 50s that influenced individual decisions Ahmed has done a great job of flipping between the past and the present without compromising the flow, which is especially comm [...]

    8. I like a book that wraps up a story, unless there is a sequel, in which case, most of the story should be tidied up and a little bit left for the next book This short story left everything hanging Which I think for the disjointed way it was put together and since the main POV is from a dying old man, it actually is appropriate I guess what I m saying is that the story is written in a realistic style Old memories and regrets, never ending family quarrels and secrets Life is messy and doesn t have [...]

    9. I enjoyed this sweet and tender story I would have preferred if it had been a bit longer, as I felt it only scratched the surface of the intricacies of the family members involved The author has a definite way with words an almost lyrical, melodic manner of telling a story I found myself wanting and wishing the author hadn t ended the story as abruptly as she had I m glad to see there are stories to come

    10. Beautiful short story about a Dr nearing the end of his life reflecting on his past and choices Loved it except for the ending which came way too abruptly
