5.0 van 5 sterren “A thought can be, negative or positive, depending on how you feel about it.” 17 februari 2017
door Piaras - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
Author, Haidji, writes with a subtle and artistic touch. These short stories are elegantly written, skillfully drawn, almost poetic and yet thought-provoking. Harables: Short Stories 1 is a collection of tales that communicates wisdom and demands reflection. I found myself absorbing the messages imparted rather than just reading for the sake of reading. While I enjoyed reading all of the stories, if I had to pick a favorite it would be ‘The Invisible Girl – a Christmas Tale.’ Not sure why, but it seemed to stay with me more so than the others.

This book will take you on an almost mystical journey that will stay with you long after you have turned the last page. A book which has been beautifully written and is ultimately a book you simply can’t put down. There’s an otherworldly and stylish feel to this work. There’s no doubt that this author is uniquely talented and I’ll be looking forward to reading more from her in the future.

If you haven’t read this author before, you don’t know what you’re missing out on. This work is fresh, unique and imaginative. These short stories would come highly recommended from me. Five stars.

Haidji is a writer with a universal brand of warmth. The fluidity of her writing conquers us with a unique style, which portrays day-to-day experiences with a very human and insightful point of view. Harables is a consistent compilation of tales born of this unique way to give voice to dreams, desires, impulses and questions. Her ideas are lights around us when we read them and after, gifts of an author or a priestess able to bring magical elements to life. She hears a call that impels her talented writing for journeys often intriguing, as a reflection of her own enigmatic images. Discovering "Harables" is like recognizing souls so rich among us that we should always be listening to the goddesses who can turn their art into words. Haidji is a beautiful silhouette progressively opening herself like a flower in each new story...

5.0 van 5 sterren A Shimmering Diamond Set of Stories! 6 maart 2015
door Cayce Hrivnak - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
I absolutely adored these short stories! Each story is unique in of itself and contains characters that you fall in love with and enjoy with each turning page. My favorite short story by far in this collection is "The Crystal Girl." Dreams and Goals are like shimmering crystals and diamonds in the sand. The metaphor of the Clare's dress being a "borrowed dream" from a friend is a great one. It's diverse and I read through it twice to understand all of the meanings to everything. I learned from it that One must never forget our dreams or how precious they all are. They are as precious as a shimmering diamond or crystal.

All the stories range from children going to a new school to the impact of a car accident. I recommend this set of tales for anyone. Anyone of any age can read these and enjoy them.

5.0 van 5 sterren A beautiful collection of parables that has a bit of something for everybody 1 september 2015
door Charity Rowell-Stansbury - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
I received a paperback copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Haidji, the author of Suicide Game, combines her flair for philosophy and prose to offer readers a collection of short stories called Harables.

As the title indicates, Harables are parables; stories that use human characters to convey lessons or principles. Haidji hints at the story that will unfold by prefacing each short story with a quote from the sotry. Not only do these hints give readers a glimpse of what is to come, but they also pique readers' interests to see how the quote fits into the upcoming story.

True to the book's summary that promises, "Every reader will have their own favourites..." I have a couple of favorites in this collection:

"Freedom" is a story about a young woman, Emma, who is leaving the nest to attend college and is moving into her own place. Being used to living at home, she realizes that she has taken many things for granted: a refrigerator full of food, the presence of her mother and brother, clean clothes. While her mother has provided these a weeks' worth of these things for her, Emma soon realizes that with freedom comes responsibility. Emma's mother anticipates that she may come to this realization a little late, and has left Emma something to help.

"The Invisible Girl - A Christmas Tale" is about a 4-year old girl that wants a doll castle for Christmas. She wants to ask Santa for a doll castle; however, her sister wants a doll house. Since her sister feels that Santa will not grant both wishes, she convinces the little girl to sacrifice her wish for a doll castle so that she can have her doll house. The little girl makes Santa an offer that is hard to refuse; she will give up her wish for a doll castle so that her sister can get a doll house for Christmas. Santa grants her sister's wish, and makes a promise of his own to the little girl.

I have read collections of short stories before; what I find intriguing about Harables is that Haidji manages to evoke different emotions with each of her stories; some are whimsical, others are hopeful and heartbreaking, and some are intriguing and in-depth. Each story has a different tone, and each story showcases Haidji's rich and evocative writing style. Harables by Haidji is a beautifully written book, and it has a little bit of something for everybody.

5.0 van 5 sterren Perfect book to gift someone 22 oktober 2016
door Pooja - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Haidji's books are my passport to paradise!

Another name of Joy = = = Haidji's Books.

You Must Read Her!

Harables is the collection of short, cute and thought provoking stories that YOU HAVE TO READ. READ. READ.
No matter how much appraisal I will give to Harables, it will be less.

I couldn't stop smiling the moment I started reading Harables.

Short story 'Srugar', being my favorite, will have its impact on me for a lifetime!

Spinning, Dancing and Singing 'Srugar' on top of my lungs, is making me feel liberated.

If I'm asked to always hold one book that will make me beautiful, happy and content - It would be Haidji's work.

Her writing style is making me go all gaga about her work!

Harables is a kind of book you read and re-read again and again; feeling each time something special about it.

I bless the day I fell in love with reading. If not then I wouldn't have come across her books and would have missed out on a lot of things.

Haidji's books are perfect to gift someone.

Following quote makes me smile every time I see it :
