Discovering Hope

Discovering Hope by Stuart Parkin is really a bundle of positivity. It is filled with short pieces that reflect on life in its various incarnation. I will call them an amalgamation of poetry and prose that goes above and beyond the simple boundaries of their respective genres. The titles like Love, Inhibitions and Empathy explore the themes of hope and gratitude, that of Action Station, Taking Control and Choice empowers one to act. While titles like Music and Freshly Cut Grass are deep, thought-provoking and inspire you to discover the magic in everyday mundaneness.

Each piece is accompanied by relevant quotes from eminent personalities that adds more to the ideas. But what specifically made this book stand out to me is the vividness of its description. A simple yet powerful writing style that sucks you right in and makes you live and feel them through and through. I could actually visualize the ambience the author created and got lost in the setting pretty early.

The hope and desire the author aims to promote through his words is thoroughly achieved. They are powerful yet subtle. Commanding yet gentle. The words resonated within me and kept coming back long after I turned the last page. I was left with so much faith, happiness and positivity among such depressing times. Definitely a great read.
