Secrets - Ruskin Bond

Delightful little read!

Its a slim collection of short stories from Ruskin, the effortless style of writing ensured that I finished the book in a single sitting in the evening.

These stories have been mostly set in Dehradoon where Ruskin grew up, and written in the first person account, largely keeping settings intact, and as he says in the foreword, with the characters often modeled on real people.

I'm struggling to quantify why the simplicity of the language and the story appeals so much, and I can't really say why, it just does...
