Pages: 49

The whole world is upside down. People are walking in the sky with the ground moving above their heads. And the reason is simple; a bestselling author is in love. But why the whole world is inverted? What's so special about this love? Or worse?

A man throws his masculine brain and heart aside and fixes a feminine one there. And the reason is simple; he wants to live the life of his lover, for 24 hours. But why does he want to do that? What's the need?

A man, neatly dressed in a suit, is playing with his bowler hat, on a highway at dawn. And the reason is simple; he needs a lift. But why does he need a lift? What's his purpose?

This ebook is a very quick read, and believe it or not these 46 pages consist of 3 power-packed short stories.

Let me break down each one for you:
1. Catherine: a brilliantly written story about a best selling author who is in love with his own fictional character. It is a rather quick and well described story. What intrigued me about this story was the end. I loved it.

2. Sidzy; for a day: a simple story of love and passion. It narrates how a man can surprise his woman and repay her for everything by just one loving kind gesture. It is nice, but honestly, I liked this one least (well if I have to compare).

3. The Highway Man: A nice story with sad beginning and happy ending. It is story of loss and tragedy, and is written in way that initially you want to kill the lead for being so selfish. But later you understand his pain. 

Overall it is a very good read and I strongly recommend it everyone. I loved it. And you can grab your copy below:

Love and Cheers
