Neel Patel narrates his short stories with a depth of feeling that draws listeners further into them. His characters are all first-generation Indian-Americans who are grappling with their identities and surroundings. At times, his delivery is muted, so subdued as to become a monotone across the characters, whose sadness can also be overwhelming. This is a volume that is best dipped into from time to time, at the listener's leisure, perhaps on rainy days or during contemplative moods. Patel brings us the stories of failed relationships and the promise of new beginnings. He deals gently with male and female characters, drawing out the pathos in their situations to elicit empathy from listeners. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
