The Audacity of You! by Dominique Wilkins is a series of short stories that speaks about the situations that we face in life. It is a revelation of human behavior and how we act, not realizing the consequences of our actions. The characters of each story belong to different age groups and are from different walks of life. The stories revolve around characters taken from our day to day life, making it easy for readers to identify with them. The stories are crisp, short, and funny and the skillful narration by the author makes it an exciting read.
The short stories are all independent and they stand on their own. None of the stories is connected to each other. The author's observations are interesting and she has shared them with readers in an engaging manner. These stories tell us how not to act and react in many situations in life. The audacity of human behavior couldn't have been explained better than this. The complexities of human characters and behaviors are brought to the fore, which makes readers look at people and their reactions in an entirely different manner.
The theme of the book is relevant and tangible, making it easy for readers to connect with and comprehend the situations. The situations mentioned in the stories are profound and thought provoking. I enjoyed the author's unique eye in capturing human behavior. It gives another angle and perspective to the actions of people around us.
