Birds of a Lesser Paradise

Once again this was another book I never would have picked up on my own. But I’m glad that I did. It’s Megan Mayhew Bergman’s debut short story collection. Even though it is a short story collection, each story is beautifully told in a way that will get readers thinking. It’s not necessarily how it’s being told, but more so what is being said. There are hidden meanings in each story. Sometimes they aren’t all that clear at first, but once they are… you’ll start to think more about your life and how these lessons apply to you. Because even if they don’t in a way… they will definitely make you appreciate the things you didn’t before. Sometimes little things, sometimes bigger things.

This book definitely helps us examine the things around us and how they shape us as people. The things that happen to us, the things that happen around us. The way we think and see the world. The things we’re passionate about, how our thoughts and feelings change with time and with experience. I don’t think I can praise this book highly enough. If you have room on your reading lists, you should make sure you add this book.
