Review: Inside y Maria Pavlova


All has been stored inside you – pain, joy, love, even death. Somewhere deep inside you is your entire world, which you can carry everywhere, which you can never get rid of.
These are nine stories about women of different times and of different age. There is a fine borderline between the unreal and the impossible. There are subtle transitions between sad and funny. The underlying common trait in all stories is the refined allure, characteristic of a woman. In the same way as air is characteristic of life. All stories reveal her subtle inner self, for which the outer reality or senses are only either a trampoline or non-existent at all. The object and subject of these nine stories is all that sparkles or tarnishes, tossed along the shores of light and darkness, yet sparkling or tarnishing truly inside, whereas its echo is reflected outside.
The recurrent theme in this collection of short stories is the exquisite and charming balance inside, which makes sense even if being lost at times. Just because by being lost, and probably exactly due to the loss, it reveals how beautiful it could have been in fact.

My opinion:

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Inside by Maria Pavlova is a short story collection.

This book belongs in the literary fiction category. It’s well written with great descriptions where it was needed. I feel that the author has a unique writing style because she managed to create some magical scenes. It was easy for me to connect with the characters and feel what they were feeling. While I was reading it I felt their pain, love, and regret. Such deep and strong emotions. There were times that I felt happy and others sad but in the end, it left me feeling content. My favorite story and the one that made me cry was the fire dancer.

If you love this genre or want to try something different I highly recommend this book. I will rate it with 5 stars.
