4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read

Book Review - Three Thousand Stitches: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives
Book – Three Thousand Stitches: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives
Author – Sudha Murty
Page – 179
Format – Paperback
Language – English
Publisher – Penguin Random House India
I started reading this book with lots of hope and expectation and I am glad that I am not disappointed except at few places. What Sudha Murty offers in 'Three Thousand Stitches' is a share of her experiences and outlook towards life in a simple and honest way. After reading this I have been deeply inspired by her commitment towards whatever she has chosen to do. She writes about her personal anecdotes with her family, teachers and friends who have touched her.
This book is a descriptive narrative of personal experiences comprises of some beautiful chapters like “how to beat the boys”, “No Place like Home”, “Three handful of water” and many more. However, there is one chapter named “A Life Unwritten” which could have written in much better way as it looks more like a Bollywood movie plot (As author has also agreed at the end of the chapter).
Book is full of Motivational content with a lot of useful information. This book also provided an insight into the working of an efficient charitable organization.
Writing Style: The language is super easy and the narration is smooth making you finish this book in two to three sitting. I personally finished it in 3 sittings.
My perception:

Without any doubt, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. The stories are so amazing, inspirational and impacting that you will find yourselves immersed in them. I can’t choose a single favorite story as all the stories are totally worth to read. From each story, you are going to learn something. Also, I strongly recommend to those who are beginner in English and new reader. Simple language, easy to understand and grasp.
A very impressive collection of short stories! You must give it a try and read it once. I am sure you will not regret it.
