    1. An interesting read. The two unrelated stories are linked by the narrator, and are framed as a kind of conversational, bare bones recounting. There was an intriguing flavor to the stories, something just a little unusual in the phrasing that's hard to put my finger on. But they did keep me interested, and I enjoyed the timeless theme of searching for love, no matter who you are.I look forward to more from this author, particularly a full-length novel.

    2. Written in a charming vernacular style, two short stories of gay Malaysian (?) men looking for love. Funny in some parts but left me feeling lonely. I suppose the sign of a good book is it leaves you feeling something and this book does that. I hope the author writes more.

    3. I call this a journal, as stories have a beginning, middle and end. I found that the writer is good with prose and was able to give ample details with few words, which take considerable skill. I'm not sure if this is the premise for something bigger, if so I would read it. I liked the characters, and had there been a storyline I think this would have been a good 'book.' But as is it read as a the pages from someone's diary. Please write more and let me know and I will definitely give it go!

    4. This book consisted of two stand alone short stories in which both of the lead characters were trying to find love. Both tales move at a fast pace, were concise and light to read. They also left me as the reader with a few afterthoughts of the characters, which is a good thing. I did however feel I wanted a little more flesh on the bones. I would've liked the stories to delve a little deeper into what it feels like to be a homosexual male who is also a Muslim and the conflict that may arise from [...]

    5. With a touch of irony and wry wit, Mr. Aksah tells a myriad of tales about the gay Muslim community. Both sympathetic and unbiased, these tales are told through the eyes of each person. Their likes. Their dislikes. Their hopes and dreams. He treats each as the individual they are, making no excuses, giving each their day on the sun. This book was absolutely a joy to read and will definitely grace my bookshelf as a paperback as soon as I can afford to buy it as such. I highly recommend this to an [...]

    6. Well witten, although not a genre I would normally read. The author seems like an interesting person and I would read future works of his.
