Writing & Narration:

As mentioned above, this book comprises some small poems, anecdotes, and thoughts, which have been curated very beautifully. Each thought and every poem is very meaningful and can be felt deeply.

Title & Cover:

Actually, to be honest, I didn’t understand the meaning of the title. In Punjabi, I guess, it’s called zero. But, I am not so sure. However, as far as the cover is concerned, it’s simple and elegant.


  • Attractive narration
  • Appropriate selection of words
  • Good language


I didn’t find anything bad.

My Verdict:

This book doesn’t contain any life-turning story; however, the words, poems and thoughts that have been put inside surely give you the sense of several different stories and life-lessons. It’s a good one, especially for those who wish to know how a writer can explain so much in so little words. So, for the curious lot, this one is a must to grab.
