Where the Dog Star Never Glows (Book Review)

The first time I received Ms. Masih’s book, I know I’m up to something I will never forget.

Where the Dog Star Never Glows by Tara L. Masih is a collection of stories that will linger in your mind even after you’re done reading it a hundred times. Her stories are so rich and its characters are all so vivid you can actually hear their voices inside your head. Every story has its own hidden colors that once you’ve finally come to see it, you will surely try to catch your breath.

Some of my favorite stories are Ghost Dance, The Dark Sun, Asylum, Sunday Drives and Huldi (India, 1990). These stories I truly found very interesting and very absorbing. Ms. Masih’s words are like cold and refreshing shower of rain pouring down on barren lands. Every story comes from the heart of every kind of races. Revealing that no matter what color is your skin, the love still shines in the soul and heart.

Where the Dog Star Never Glows is the kind of book you will never forget. It is a kind of collection you will surely read again and again even if you’ve already memorize the story itself by heart.
