People are interested in love stories since love is an emotion that encompasses the world, even the universe, and in many ways fires up other feelings. Love can challenge and overcome other sentiments, but it isn't always victorious. The stories deal with personalities, some strong and some weak, the way that humans are created and brought up. Many tales can be considered unusual, dealing with exceptional topics and characters.
The author has envisioned and experienced many of the situations described, and has told them the way that they happened, saving their true message without trying to introduce controversial characters or situations that would not benefit the narrative. And finally, it has to be mentioned that some of the stories were created, so to speak, while the author was either falling asleep or even in her dreams.
"Elena" is one of those stories, although it is a tragic story as well, and love is not victorious. Yet love fights to win but in the end is defeated, which can happen at times when love has a formidable adversary against which it cannot compete.
A different love is described in the story "Two Hats" in which there is a self-centered man who only has his own appearance in mind. And then there is the standard love of a couple of birds that behave just as a human couple would. Even the cat is a lover of her mat as long as the mat serves it well and discards it when the mat becomes useless.
And so, there are different kinds of love that can be found and noticed. The book also contains other topics and surprises, dealing with folktales, fantasy, humor, pain, and medical themes, to name just a few. The reader may enjoy these stories and remember them, hopefully even after some time has passed.
