Format: Kindle Edition
Haidji author of "SG Suicide Games" has published her first collection of short stories "Harables." It addresses a variety of young adult themes such as growing up, drifting apart, love, friendship, trust, betrayal, the endurance of love even in hostile circumstances, and what it is to be a developing human being in this world. She offers some jewels of precious wisdom in this book and a love story based in Iraq called "Love War Story" that reads like a romantic film, set in a war zone, that in my completely humble opinion should be turned into a novel.

Haidji offers insight into the creative mind through dream exploration and she shows her extensive interest in the unconscious mind. Somehow this seems a vital activity for the author of the stories to connect the world of the unconscious with the conscious waking state in order to make this life not only bearable and liveable but to create life at its optimal value. At this juncture I wish to quote from her short story "The Name of Dreams"

"Since the time we are born, we are trying to learn the name of

everything, from objects around us, to persons, feelings, and

situations…. Sometimes, the most difficult thing to learn…is

to learn the name of our dreams. Only when you figure out

the name of your dreams, can you then call them, so that they

will make you find the way of your dreams into your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars “A thought can be, negative or positive, depending on how you feel about it.” 17 February 2017
By Piaras - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Author, Haidji, writes with a subtle and artistic touch. These short stories are elegantly written, skillfully drawn, almost poetic and yet thought-provoking. Harables: Short Stories 1 is a collection of tales that communicates wisdom and demands reflection. I found myself absorbing the messages imparted rather than just reading for the sake of reading. While I enjoyed reading all of the stories, if I had to pick a favorite it would be ‘The Invisible Girl – a Christmas Tale.’ Not sure why, but it seemed to stay with me more so than the others.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Discovering "Harables" is like recognizing souls so rich among us that we should ... 23 October 2016
By Paulo Nunes - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Haidji is a writer with a universal brand of warmth. The fluidity of her writing conquers us with a unique style, which portrays day-to-day experiences with a very human and insightful point of view. Harables is a consistent compilation of tales born of this unique way to give voice to dreams, desires, impulses and questions. Her ideas are lights around us when we read them and after, gifts of an author or a priestess able to bring magical elements to life. She hears a call that impels her talented writing for journeys often intriguing, as a reflection of her own enigmatic images. Discovering "Harables" is like recognizing souls so rich among us that we should always be listening to the goddesses who can turn their art into words. Haidji is a beautiful silhouette progressively opening herself like a flower in each new story...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Shimmering Diamond Set of Stories! 7 March 2015
By Cayce Hrivnak - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I absolutely adored these short stories! Each story is unique in of itself and contains characters that you fall in love with and enjoy with each turning page. My favorite short story by far in this collection is "The Crystal Girl." Dreams and Goals are like shimmering crystals and diamonds in the sand. The metaphor of the Clare's dress being a "borrowed dream" from a friend is a great one. It's diverse and I read through it twice to understand all of the meanings to everything. I learned from it that One must never forget our dreams or how precious they all are. They are as precious as a shimmering diamond or crystal.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect book to gift someone 23 October 2016
By Pooja - Published on
Haidji's books are my passport to paradise!

Another name of Joy = = = Haidji's Books.

You Must Read Her!

Harables is the collection of short, cute and thought provoking stories that YOU HAVE TO READ. READ. READ.
No matter how much appraisal I will give to Harables, it will be less.

I couldn't stop smiling the moment I started reading Harables.

Short story 'Srugar', being my favorite, will have its impact on me for a lifetime!

Spinning, Dancing and Singing 'Srugar' on top of my lungs, is making me feel liberated.

If I'm asked to always hold one book that will make me beautiful, happy and content - It would be Haidji's work.

Her writing style is making me go all gaga about her work!

Harables is a kind of book you read and re-read again and again; feeling each time something special about it.

I bless the day I fell in love with reading. If not then I wouldn't have come across her books and would have missed out on a lot of things.

Haidji's books are perfect to gift someone.

Following quote makes me smile every time I see it :
