This book will take you on an almost mystical journey that will stay with you long after you have turned the last page. A book which has been beautifully written and is ultimately a book you simply can’t put down. There’s an otherworldly and stylish feel to this work. There’s no doubt that this author is uniquely talented and I’ll be looking forward to reading more from her in the future.
If you haven’t read this author before, you don’t know what you’re missing out on. This work is fresh, unique and imaginative. These short stories would come highly recommended from me. Five stars.

All the stories range from children going to a new school to the impact of a car accident. I recommend this set of tales for anyone. Anyone of any age can read these and enjoy them.
Haidji, the author of Suicide Game, combines her flair for philosophy and prose to offer readers a collection of short stories called Harables.
As the title indicates, Harables are parables; stories that use human characters to convey lessons or principles. Haidji hints at the story that will unfold by prefacing each short story with a quote from the sotry. Not only do these hints give readers a glimpse of what is to come, but they also pique readers' interests to see how the quote fits into the upcoming story.
True to the book's summary that promises, "Every reader will have their own favourites..." I have a couple of favorites in this collection:
"Freedom" is a story about a young woman, Emma, who is leaving the nest to attend college and is moving into her own place. Being used to living at home, she realizes that she has taken many things for granted: a refrigerator full of food, the presence of her mother and brother, clean clothes. While her mother has provided these a weeks' worth of these things for her, Emma soon realizes that with freedom comes responsibility. Emma's mother anticipates that she may come to this realization a little late, and has left Emma something to help.
"The Invisible Girl - A Christmas Tale" is about a 4-year old girl that wants a doll castle for Christmas. She wants to ask Santa for a doll castle; however, her sister wants a doll house. Since her sister feels that Santa will not grant both wishes, she convinces the little girl to sacrifice her wish for a doll castle so that she can have her doll house. The little girl makes Santa an offer that is hard to refuse; she will give up her wish for a doll castle so that her sister can get a doll house for Christmas. Santa grants her sister's wish, and makes a promise of his own to the little girl.
I have read collections of short stories before; what I find intriguing about Harables is that Haidji manages to evoke different emotions with each of her stories; some are whimsical, others are hopeful and heartbreaking, and some are intriguing and in-depth. Each story has a different tone, and each story showcases Haidji's rich and evocative writing style. Harables by Haidji is a beautifully written book, and it has a little bit of something for everybody.
