Let me start my review with a favourite line from the book:

“Stretch out your hand…. You will eventually find something to hold on to”.?

Yasmin Sait’s Manan is a collection of short stories, rather biographies of 9 women who are in their sixties. They have shared a brief account of the clutches of their past and how they managed to put themselves first as they grew older. They chose to do what they couldn’t do in the past – someone joins a gym, someone decides to start a dancing academy, someone starts an NGO or a foundation and someone opens a public school and so on, all in their sixties! They finally decide to untie the bonds of suppression and obligation and go on to love themselves first. It’s a non fiction that is very light hearted and will not sound preachy or boring.

PROS: It’s definitely one of the few non fiction Books that I enjoyed reading.

It is a feel good, light hearted book which is not too preachy. It’s truly inspiring and heart warming at the same time.

It’s a quick read book with less than 150 pages.

I love the cover and the title.

CONS: The book was very brief and I would definitely want to read more about every individual in the book. I just want more of it.

My review: 5/5

Thank you @writersmelon for the review copy.
