Best moments@ “The Other End of the Corridor”
-“I walked some distance, only to realize that I was walking in the opposite direction. I stopped, giggled, and said to myself, it wasn’t me who was walking in the wrong direction, it was life.”
-“Love could wait, life couldn’t.”
-“The most desired gift of love is not diamonds, it is undivided attention”.
-When real life is as strange as fiction, who needs stories?
The Other End of the Corridor leaves you with an inspiration message:
“They say you can always see a faint light at the end of the tunnel. All you need to do is follow the light and you will be out of darkness. The corridor, I was walking down didn’t have a trace of illumination. I couldn’t see the other end. But I kept moving and now, when I have reached the other end, I realize that more than the light, you need the determination to keep moving, keep struggling for your dreams, for your existence, for your survival.”
I rate the book as 5/5
